NEW PIECES READY FOR THE VINTAGE MARKETPLACE AT THE OAKS....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

I found the perfect wall outside the workshop to hang all my new projects and take pictures before pricing and putting everything away. Can you believe it...it's raining here in Rainbow Ca? So my pictures could use a little bit  more light but there wasn't enough time for me to wait for the storm to pass. I was taking pictures while the thunder storm was getting louder and louder. I love Summer Rain!

I made one of my photos transparent and found the perfect quote to share with you. 
To me it says "Be-Brave"
 Here are my projects
I am ReAlLy excited about our next event.
-I love how the tractor's engine door came out.(top left) It was orange and rusted and if you know me I do not like the color orange. I gave it two coats of my favorite pink (acrylic paint, Home Depot Eggshell color match pink).

-A Chalk board was made from a vintage window and perfect for the kitchen.
-The foot board is upside down as you can see. I have been trying to sell this foot board and head board  for three years so I decided it was time for a transformation. 

-I love making these banners. I have seen them made with fabric or paper but since I am a wood worker I decided to give it a try and make them with wood. 



-And here is the headboard! (bottom left) I cut the feet and added 2 glass knobs ,one antique handle and few of my handmade appliques.

I am working on few jewelry pieces at the moment and can't wait to share them with you!


Wishing you a wonderful week to come!


Ciao for now Rita
