Somebody stop me!

As you can see, I REALLY do like this new paint color I found...soft, soft, grey. The tall cabinet on the left is another example if my painted "faux" enamel tags. The top of the chair I just painted shows at the bottom of the photo.

To upholster or not to upholster

I purchased these chairs with the plan to reupholster someday. The fabric was in good shape...I just wasn't crazy about it. The other day I had this idea that I would try to paint first. Now I think I really do like the fabric. The paint seems to really compliment it. I especially like the way the paint brings out the carvings. What do you think?

St. Francis Retablo

All my santos and most of my nichos have sold at Bloom and Bee Swanky. Since I love animals, I painted this 8 x 10 retablo of St. Francis, patron saint of animals.
