Swing Gate Table and Writing Desk

This is the second swing gate table I've painted in maybe six weeks. These are incredibly cool pieces and I have fun redoing the top as a more rustic farm table. This particular piece lifts off the legs. The writing desk was red originally. I decided to add Old White and distress. The writing desk will be available in Alyssa's Antique Depot this week.

American Gothic Foxes

I am a girl.

I'm transitioning my blog from something that's been more personal and a journal of sorts to something that's more for my business. I'm asked for pictures of my furniture, my art, my lettering and it it's easiest for me to put them all in one place.

It's a pet peeve of mine, but I'm often mistakenly referred to as a guy. Dissertations, articles on art, and some magazines assume that "Chris" must mean a boy. Although I don't think of myself as particularly feminine, I enjoy being a female and I cringe when I'm referred to as "him" or "his art". Anyhow, this is me. I'm flawed but strong, weak except for Christ who strengthens me and completely and utterly female. I'm married, so no weird mail please.

Custom Painted Furniture Projects



 Farm table with swinging gate legs (SOLD)



 Yes, I can even paint faux leather. (This one is sold)


Custom painted mirror (and my own fireplace)

I custom paint furniture nearly every day and I can paint just about anything. Most clients want distressed painted furniture, but I've painted all kinds of things in all kinds of styles. Here are a few I've painted recently. Most items are sold but a few up for sale right now, either in Alyssa's Antique Depot in Pace, Florida or out of my home.

Family Tree- Letter K in progress

I need new pens. I'm using up so much ink on these large letters that it's streaking too much. I'm thinking about the anime drawing markers or some giant calligraphy markers for the near future.

Fox Gent (SOLD)

Back OFF.

We had incredible summer lightning storms. These were taken carefully, and fearfully from my yard.
