I have a former client, Holly, who asked me to donate to her kids' school district fund raiser. With a name like "Denim N' Diamonds" how can you resist? My hubby is not from Texas and said that "Denim N' Diamonds" is the perfect fund raiser name for Texas women. I think he is picturing some Texas Mommas:)
One of my very favorite things to do is to bring new life into something old. Of course refinishing heirloom pieces is most special to me when I know their story, but regardless it is a treat. I love to hit the Canton Trade Days and McKinney Trade Days to search for old treasures with potential.
I found this beaut in McKinney. My good friend Rachel braved the TERRIBLE weather with me to find this piece (gotta love a fine mist in the air...feels just like a sneeze!)
When painting for auctions I try to think of something fairly neutral so that it will fit the current style and color scheme of a wide variety of clients. Denim N' Diamonds is supporting children's education, so I painted a piece that could easily go in a child's room. I think the piece will fit in a bath or entry area as well.
