Before and After - 10-24-2009



The before... someone went to a LOT of trouble to make this message/mail centre... it has been hanging around forevvvvvveeeeer...thanks Jan for the kick in the butt to get this one done...

(My girlfiend Jan and I have been friends since grade 3 believe me that was a very long time ago we have always been there for each other no matter what... she has been such a BIG help to me...  every few months we take a girls weekend to the states to my BF's place and just have fun painting, shopping for treasures, making grunge candles whatever we are in the mood to do at the time... we have such a great system going... I take the pieces apart, prep them and she paints for me and if she is faster than me she takes them apart and paints too... bonus... LOL...she likes the painting part and I like the playing part... it is so nice to have someone to bounce your ideas off of and she comes up with some great ones and doesn't give herself enough credit...  Jan thanks from the bottom of my heart for just being there and your support means the world to me... I love you my dear friend.... xo)


thanks Jan for painting this... it was such a pain to do ... but you know it would have stayed in the archives if not for you... all I did was distress it and added a shutter hook on the door that opens for mail storage... thankfully it is done and in the store now...


look at the detail inside this... that is true bead board folks... obviously someone used their trash pieces to create this well made treasure...  (SOLD)

I love helping you paint all your treasures, it is a lot of fun for me to see how you make ordinary pieces come to life after my painting is done.. The finished product is always a surprise for me. :) and you are welcome.. you scratch my back, i will scratch yours. hahahahhahaha
