In process..

5 Apr

I have been pretty lazy lately which is NOT a good thing bc I have deadlines…. FOR REAL.

—————————

A friend of mine Lisa just opened this amazing shop called Junk and Jewels – if you live in the DFW area you should definitely check it out. Her shop is located in Carrollton’s downtown square right next door to Babes chicken.

(See what I mean? She is RIGHT next door literally)

Besides being located by the best chicken EVER her shop is just AMAZING! She has redone/repurposed items, some new items, jewelry, paintings, old doors, mirrors, rusted fenders… yeah a crazy cool mix of stuff. In short?

CHECK HER OUT – you wont be disappointed!

—————————

Ok back to my deadlines – she is going to let me display a few of my pieces in her store and I said I would have a few things done and delivered this weekend. Get why being lazy isn’t SO awesome? (ok ok I have a few things done but still more is always better)

Before I knew about my deadline I was working on a few items and after about 3 weeks of dragging it out I am almost done with 3 small projects – told you I was lazy! Here are the before pictures the after photos will be posted as soon as I am ALL done!! So sad…

Magazine holder

– Let me start off by saying I am kinda obsessed with the bamboo look lately so when I saw this I HAD to pick it up… I am using a lime-ish color and it looks quite fab so far.

(please ignore the horrible photo and my painting drop cloth)

Chevron vase

– This one WOULD have been done but lets just say it was a project fail the first time around… rest assured I have a new plan and am currently making it happen!

(Again, bad photo and this isn’t the color I am using just put it there to show scale)

Brass Peacock

– This lil dude is SO cool such great detail however he is missing 1 toe – but hey, we all have to have at least 1 flaw right? He is getting a coat of a great blue with some green glittery accents across that beautiful tail feather!!

(Again, bad photos… blah blah blah)
