Getting Ready For Fall Craft Shows

... and thought I'd paint up something to hold my business cards. I have been going through my wood stash lately - and have so many nice pieces ... waiting ... waiting ... for what?LOL

So, I decided to paint this to hold my business cards. My sister and I will be doing some craft shows in Jersey and Pennsylvania this coming fall... so I figure I need to get started.

Painted Box - Work In Progress Continued

Hello Bloggers!

I pretty much finished the box for my son - while I'm still thinking it needs something else in the background, he likes it AS-IS ... so it may not remain too much longer on my paint table!LOL It wasn't until I reached this point that I realized I have him pointing the gun at his head!! ... but my son thinks I'm taking this too literal. he loves it.

I'm trying to think of some more elements, but the box isn't that big, and I don't want to overwhelm it .. yet I wonder if I can add anything.

Painted Box_Work In Progess

I started going through painting surfaces in my stash, and came up with a couple of boxes that I'd been wanting to paint for a while now. One of the boxes had clawed feet - and I promised my son I'd paint that one specially for him.

He is really into paintball right now, so I decided to paint him, in full paintball mode.

So far, so good ... I think I should be able to finish this by this evening. He already wants it, and has picked out a place in his room!!
