Missed May and Just About Forgot June
Well - I completely missed May's blog and almost forgot about June! We are having beautiful weather here in Kamloops, and it is inspiring everyone to start working on their furniture projects, which is keeping me very busy.
I have been loving decoupage paper projects the last couple months! There are so many incredible patterns and prints to choose from. I have a good selection at the store now, and I will keep adding to the stock. If you're curious how to use decoupage paper, pop into the store, and I can set you up a sample project. The image attached to this blog is a decoupage project - a beautiful image from Posh Chalk and a dozen colors of Fusion Mineral Paint for blending.
Commissions: I get so many requests for rough estimates to re do furniture for people, that I have created a list. I will add that to the bottom of this post - hope it helps!
Stay hydrated in this heat... and come see me at the store for a cold drink :)
