New Projects

These are my new projects now that my chairs are done. I found this wooden toy box at good will for 5 dollars and this new can of paint for 5 dollars at home depot yesterday. It is pretty heavy so Alexander won't be able to move it around the house and collect things as he is prone to do.



This is going to be my favorite project: FRAMES.







I love frames and matching them to my collection of things that need to be framed. These are from the box of frames I bought at auction. I like frames to be black, gold or silver and white is starting to grow on me. I am very particular with frame color and even photo album color (black or baby colors for baby pictures). I am letting Daniel have one remain natural wood because its his print that will be going in it but otherwise I keep to my color scheme. I am closed minded I know but I believe it looks better in my house. I might do different fun colors in the kids rooms but that is yet to be determined.

You are a genius when it comes to frames. I have many of your old ones, and I have to say I agree with your view on keeping your frames a certain color. It makes it look neater, or something. Orderly.

My very resourceful daughter. I wish I had your talent. You are the one that will be looking at the frames all day hehe.
It is so wonderful being able to look at something and see the end project before you even start.
You have great talent.
