She's cute alright, but if anyone has a toddler, you know that trying to get anything (art) done is like trying to organize papers in a tornado!
So, as I move forward, I'm trying hard to create some more "me" time and get in the studio to accomplish the LONG list of projects I've got lined up.
This first project is something I had waiting in the garage for me for quite some time. I picked up this rather ugly little bench seat at a thrift store a while back for a whopping $3.00 I saw the potential and I jumped at this little piece. Then, a few weeks ago, Ace Hardware was giving away free quarts of paint in any color to the first 200 people or so that showed up... I'm all about freebies, so I was there bright and early and picked out a fabulous shade of aqua for my little girl's room. I also had been given a ton of fabulous scrap pieces of fabric left from the custom quilt I had made for my daughter's room, and it was a perfect fit for the top of this bench... Fast forward 30 minutes... I have this gorgeous little bench seat for her room... coming in at a grand total of $3.00 for the entire project!
