Goodness, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?? The last month or two has felt semi-insane…I’ve been so very busy painting–and surviving the end of the kids’ school year, and most recently, the extra special chaos that is Vacation Bible School (not over yet, cross your fingers for me) that I’ve sorta neglected to post stuff. In a loooong time. Sorry about that! Whew…alrighty then, time to catch up. Wanna see what I’ve been up to? Good, I was hoping you’d say that!
OK…so, remember in one of my last posts, I mentioned that I was taking on a BIG project, that whole kitchen set thing? Well, it’s almost done…and I think it might just possibly be kinda awesome. Here’s the premise: the client decided on a travel theme, with the table depicting scenes from their home turf, the LA area…and then each of the stools representing a special destination meaningful to their family.
Well, wait…here, easier to show than tell:
Here’re the various spots around L.A.–you may recognize many of these!
Each table leg features a phrase or two from the region depicted on the stools (more on those in a minute)… …And the passport stamps on the central barrel are inspired by stamps from the client’s actual passport!
And…viola…the stools themselves!
We’ve got Paris, with the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and the carousel….
…London with Big Ben, double decker bus (with an almost-hidden “London 2012 Olympics” billboard), and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground…
See? I’ve been busy! I’m in love with this concept…I think I want one of these myself!!
