Show and Tell Monday

Today I decided to show and tell what I spend most of my time doing. My mother and I have a shop in Madison, CT for which I do all of the furniture (treasure hunting and painting). Then last week something exciting happened ... I was asked to fill a room in a wonderful shop in Essex, CT, another beautiful shoreline town similar to Madison. Along with this, I also do a lot of custom work for clients painting their pieces. And, as soon as I figure out how to ship larger pieces, I will be adding them to my site.

So ... here are a few photos of what I was working on all week. Thanks for visiting!

Show and Tell Monday

I found this cute little milking stool at my favorite junk shop. I had ordered some gorgeous decals from The Decal Cottage and couldn't wait to play with them. I painted the stool a pretty pink and applied the decals (very easy to use) , added a few polka dots and here it is. I'm usually working on large pieces of furniture so this was a fun little project.

New Blog

Welcome to Cottage Flair's blog. Today is my "create my own blog" day. I have been diligently working at it on and off all day and hope to make some major improvements as I trudge along.
