I'm Painting Again!

Hello everyone! So excited that I am painting again. If any of you read my very first post I mentioned that my Dad used to cut out wood projects for me and I would paint them. Well it has been a LONG time since I have done any painting! But happy to say that I am back at it! And it feels good and I realized today how much I have missed it! A few weeks ago I sent my Dad some pictures via email and asked him whenever he had time if he could make them for me I would be one happy camper! Well....he got right on it and made all THREE of the things that I asked him for! Bless his heart! I couldn't wait to get them and come to find out my sister was coming for a visit so he sent all the wood goodies with her! :)

Here is what they looked like all naked:

And here they are now:

I cannot tell you how exciting it was and how fun it was to be painting again! I am sure any of you out there that paint and create understand the satisfaction and the pride in doing something yourself! I was painting the doughboard and distressing it ~ when I put the stain on at the end I could not believe how the wood came alive! I know it sounds so silly but it was just like this spark in me was re~lit! I was like "well what do you know" it's really turning out!! :) Once I started there was no stopping me.....I finished all three projects in one day! My Mom and Dad are coming for a visit tomorrow and I am so excited for him to see everything all done! It was just like old times~Dad cut it out and put it together and I put the finishing touches on! I told him that next on my list is a toaster cover and a shelf for my basement and he said "well just send me some pictures of what you want"!!! Aren't Dad's the absolute best!!
Can't wait for everything to dry completely so I can put all the "fun stuff" on them! I will post more pictures when they are all decked out! Until next time take care. ~Sarah~

  4. Hi Sarah~ I am new to your blog and let me say that I am hooked!
    Your Dad is wonderful! He did a great job making the items you asked for, and you did a fantastic job painting and primming them up!
    I am off to read more of your older posts! I should be up all night!

  5. WOW!! I love your new items and you did a wonderful job painting them.

    Thanks for sharing!!


  6. Love them all!! I know what you mean about painting...I really miss it if I don't paint often enough. I want a cover to sit on my stove-top, but don't know where I would sit it when I cook. Can't wait to see how you decorate them.

  7. What a beautiful blog you have! I am so excited that I came across it tonight and had to become one of your followers. :) It is just darling and I love all of the pictures that you have. Your projects are just primfect! You are a very talented lady. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to come by and visit my new prim blog at Farm Wife Primitives. It was just created last week and am looking forward to sharing ideas, pictures and projects with other prim lovers out there in blogland. :) It would be my honor to have you as one of my followers if you so choose.

    Happy crafting and many blessings,

  10. Hi Sarah, these are just beautiful!
    I especially love the Whales Tail Wall Shelf....

  11. Sarah,

    You did a beautiful job!! You can hear the excitement in your posts of being able to share this with your Dad again! Wood design and crafting is definitely addicting ;-) Your designs turned out great! I especially like the Whales Tail Shelf Design - it's unique, I hope you share pictures of them displayed ;-)

    Prim Blessin's,

  12. Hi Sarah!
    FANTASTIC job! Your dad does wonderful work and your painting just added the perfect touch!
    I love working with wood too :)
    Love all your pieces!

    Have a wonderful day-Kath

  13. Hi Sarah! You and your dad make a great team! I love all your new goodies!

    I was reading some of your webshots...where did you get that windowpane? Was it at the log cabin by Roca? If it was, isn't her shop a lot of fun?! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, there is a log cabin outside of Roca that has a prim shop. She sells the "real thing" when it comes to primitives and can be quite expensive sometime. But it's sure fun to go. I haven't been there in forever, I don't like bringing the boys with me. LOL There is always a prim shop in Roca which has some goodies as well-Sweet Annie's Primitives

    I hope you are having a great week!

  14. Well you know I think you DONE good already! I am so happy your dad can make things for you - what a blessing! looking forward to seeing what comes next! Hugs, Linda
