When my children were little, I loved creating one of a kind things for them. I painted murals on their walls, made cute little projects and painted furniture.......(yes, even back then! remember the redo here?)
Those days are gone....
They are grown so I don't get to do too many "kid" things.
unless they are gifts or orders......like painting names of newborn babies
or client designs
That is when it all comes back to me. This one really hit home. A pink hand painted Adirondack chair! It is based on the Golden Book "Pokey Little Puppy"
The child's Adirondack chair was a special gift from this little girl's grandparents.
She loves the book so they wanted Pokey Little Puppy on the front with her name.
It was whimsical and sweet. The slots made it difficult to paint because of the spaces but I think it came out cute!
Little details were added to the sides and arms.
Now this little girl has a keepsake and special memory forever!
I love to personalize furniture. When I painted murals I would paint the child's name in the painting or leave something behind for them to find.
It is fun to create and add character to any piece.
sometimes even humor........
