I don't do this as often as I would like to--paint furniture--in this case 2 very different tables that I found at flea markets. The first one was one of my favorites to find--
a typewriter table--definitely a memory from the past. I love finding these tables and giving them a new life--
a sewing machine table--I gave it some color--
And then I took my new art and repurposed that on to a cigar box--
This is definitely my favorite way of making art--taking those forgotten items from the past life, give them a facelift and bringing them back out into the world again.

Hi everyone! I have a tutorial for this piece over at the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog--
It all started out with the doll head that I had in my art room just staring at me for the longest time--once she started helping me create herself (because it took a little while)--it was fun--check out my step-by-step process HERE.

I always love transforming the old pieces that I pick up at flea markets and garage sales--like this one....
actually one of 2 old cupboard doors that I found at a flea market this summer--$5.00 for both--that's $2.50 each! You can't feel guilty about messing up on these at that price, and they are a pretty good size too--18 x 30
putting on my first layer
next step--the sunflowers
used a palette knife for the first time--once I got the hang of it, it was fun to do
the finished door--
so happy with this--don't pass up those old doors or whatever you may see at flea markets that could very well end up in the trash--it's always fun seeing what you can do with pieces like these. so now.....on to the next one!
