As promised, here are some pictures of the faux finish project I did last week. I used the combing effect which turned out very cool- it looked like striated wallpaper. The owners chose a very beachy color scheme (pale yellow and a relaxing blue) to go with their collection of seashells. The pictures don't do it justice, though.

Here is a picture of a project from last week where I painted giraffe print on a bookcase at the Jessamine County Head Start.

I spent most of today painting the bathroom at Two Chicks & Company (a local boutique on Southland Dr). It was a fun & simple project- I left the wall colors the same and decided to go with a colorful & whimsical design. I painted multi-colored polka dot above the chair-rail and various designs of flip-flops below it. As you can see, the owners display a fair amount of merchandise in the room, so I didn't want to paint something too large that would be covered by furniture or pictures. Tomorrow I go back to paint a zebra print on the outside of the door. I love painting animal prints!

New to Blogging

I finally bit the bullet and explored this blogging thing. I am sure I will quickly get hooked, just as I did with Facebook. I look forward to this new experience!
