I painted this dressing table for an artist friend, along with the dresser seen below. She later had me paint a bed head board and foot board that matched this style, to go with it. A lot of fun, and lots of polkadots!



This is a chair I donated to a fund raiser for some friends of mine who had lost their grand daughter in a car accident near Bennington. The other two girls involved had serious injuries and the money went to help with their expenses.













These are lazy susans which gives you art on your table.










A wall hanging, that could also be used as a door hanger for a front door.
My son built this bench and it was one of my first projects. I painted it in his garage in Alaska, and have been painting ever since!
This is a growth chart that I created for Nora, who loves owls.

  5. I see you use folk art paint, but do you sand and prime your wood pieces with anything special? Also, do you finish them with a poly?

    1. Linda, I use Folk Art, Deco, Americana, Martha Stuart, most of the main brands. I steer clear of the cheap bottles because they usually don't have as much pigment. I always sand and clean my pieces really well. I like the acrylic art bottles of paint because they blend really well to get the streaked effect on my pieces. I also use a minimum of 3 coats of Poly, usually I use Varathane water based because it bonds to itself and doesn't require sanding in between coats. But Polyacrylic by minwax is good too. Any other questions, feel free to email or call me. 402 750 1114 after 5PM CST. hope this helps! Carolyn
