Busy painting.....

I have been painting like a banshee lately....

....but it keeps me busy and out of Macy's!!

I have had a few pieces of furniture in the basement since last fall and decided to clear out that area and paint them.  Here is one of my favorites:

This was a rustic sofa table, that was hand made by a local guy.  I painted a harlequin design on top.  This sold quickly to a woman who will use it in her office!

To update this unique cupboard, I just painted the top in checks.  It sold in a few hours!!

This table is still available - I always have trouble selling anything grey!!

I struggled with finding inspiration for these stacking end tables - one is painted in checks and the other in leopard pattern.    They sold in about 20 minutes!

This piece still  has me undecided - should I paint it white?  I just can't decide.  I made the cushion and think it is the cutest bench - can't you picture it in a mudroom, the perfect piece to sit in while putting on your boots!!

So, as you can see, I have been busy.  I have 3 more pieces to work on, so.....

  1. Great pieces Patti! I'm glad that you are selling them quickly. I too have trouble selling anything gray...wonder why?


  2. distressed turquoise on the bench with some colored wax for highlights. thoughts.

  3. You have been very busy! Each project is full of charm. I admire your talents, Patti!

  4. Gosh, Patti, I really like the subtle tones on the sofa table, but the leading tabel photo and those stacking tables - love!! You're so very talented with the brush! As for the bench...I love the signature MC bright green with black, but I've also always loved that contrast in nature - it's like spring leaves against black tree bark after a rain.

  5. You sure are good at adding checks and making us smile!

  6. Hi Patti, You are certainly have a talent for painting! Love these gorgeous checks. I can't believe the little grey table is not selling, so adorable………...
