I've been playing around with a new technique for transferring images onto wood.
I wanted something that would be simple and cheap, but that also
delivered good results.
I purchased a burnishing tool from Michael's for $16.00,
and used my 40% off coupon.
So far so good!
Here are a two samples I did...

Yes, it's off centered (rookie error!). I used a Sharpie Paint Pen
over the burnished image, but decided about half way through that
I didn't like the crisp look. Therefore, I sanded down and

acheive and was able to do on the second piece.
I wanted it to look aged and weathered.

My kids are FINALLY out of school...
It is officially
I spent the better part of their last day
doing a custom paint job.
Thank goodness it was SUNNY!!!
I invited a good friend over who also had some
painting projects of her own and we cranked
the tunes and got to work.
A nice lunch on the patio about 2:00pm, followed by another
good friend joinging us, which
turned into opening a bottle (or two) of wine...
and our painting party was in full swing!
Really, it was a good excuse to celebrate
the end of the schoolyear!
|This antique dresser/sideboard was already primered for me, which was not what I usually do since I use ASCP, but its a project that the owner's husband had started and then she had me take over.|
|The doors were not primered as you can see.|

|How cool is the hardware?|
Here's looking to more days like these!
I hope your summer is in full swing!
