You are my Sunshine
Recently I was commissioned by a friend to create a piece of art work, on boards,
with the words from the song "You are my Sunshine"
Here's what I came up with:
The paint technique was very intentional. The colors were picked by my "client."
My favorite part is the Ralph Lauren Tobacco stain rubbed on the top.
I've used this paint/glaze treatment several times on various pieces of furniture in my home.
I got the idea from my good friend and the both of us use it on everything!
For years I've been signing the backs of my scrapbook pages...
Here is where my latest creation now resides:
Doesn't it look stunning against her mocha walls? I love it!
I had to show you a couple of pictures of her house (with her permission of course!)
She painted all her cabinets and used the Ralph Lauren Tobacco stain rubbed on the top.
Close-up of the cabinets.
The same treatment done again here.
Don't you love the clean look of her family room? I do!
One of my favorite rooms in her house is her 3-year-old daughter's room.
The color choice is so bold and unique
It actually inspired me to use the same scheme in my kid's bathroom.
She is not only my good friend and now "client" she is the hair stylist for me and my girls.
Here is Sidney after getting several inches cut off. We love her cute summer bob.
And here she and I are. Me with MY new summer-do!
