Absolutely beautiful piece, know my mum is going to love it for Christmas, and can't thank Elaine enough for sending it via air mail! Fantastic customer service and one of the few that ships to Australia!! Definitely be looking here in the future.
A silk purse and a sows ear..
As you can see in my Bio at even two years old you could find me in overalls ready and eager to work. But really, it was my fathers inspiration that led me to wanting to bring old pieces to life.
One summer he and I re built a boat together which he aptly named the "Elaina Marie" after his dutiful assistant ...me.. Unfortunately that boat sank but my love for refinishing and making a silk purse out of a sows ear did not.
Sometimes out of sheer necessity and sometimes just out of tenacity I will labor over a piece until I can bring it to life. Nothing excites me more than dragging home what is usually
coined as that "old piece of junk" and transforming it to a useful creative work of art. I will admit I mostly work for the kudos...the more the "betterer" as I always say but I think its an addiction. I hear there's help but I'm in denial ..there are just so many pieces to save and so little time.
So until the next time...
Don't just stand there...Paint Something!!!
Around the web
Since the first time I helped my carpenter father refinish a boat and have it named after me I was hooked on "Making a silk purse out of a sows ear" I love perusing and snooping around buying and researching interesting finds.
The Future Designer
Before I was two I was in coverall's and what appears to be little work boots..who knew that one day I'd be in my own shop like my Dad sawing and sanding away.
