You may remember a week at the studio being a post I wrote last spring. But time has really flown this spring so today I am scratching a week at the studio and making it a month at the studio.
The month of May to be exact.
We spend our summers in Vermont so we work like crazy in April and May to get enough product finished and stock our booth so we can leave Texas for 2 months and business will continue as usual. This year we left the 3rd of June and spent 4 grueling days on the highways between Texas and Vermont watching road construction and sweating in a car that had lost its air-conditioning! Grrr… And then great joy!
Graduation was fabulous and worth whatever hardship it took to get here!
On to a few of the projects we finished this spring.
I used our stamps and stencils to put up some poignant sayings in a customer’s new gourmet kitchen. This is a gorgeous house in Waxahachie, Texas that was renovated as an Air B&B. I did the topography stencils in the kitchen while my husband built doors for the closets in the two guest rooms.
Below are some of the processes for the things we created and recreated this month for our shop and clients. Click on any image and see full size photos. We are presently working on a diy home decor group and if you are at all interested please leave a comment so we can get back to you when it opens up.
My favorite from A Month at the Studio
I fell in love with this Iron Orchid Design transfer when it first came out last summer “Parisiensis”. It is quite popular and I have trouble keeping it in stock. It was backordered so I have been waiting to get my hands on one. While I waited I searched for the perfect piece and I found this mahogany dresser to fit the bill! We will save working with mahogany for another post!
I know this picture isn’t too great but I think you can get the idea of the work we had to do to get it ready for the transfer! We used Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Shutter Gray and Linen. We love the Shutter Gray, it is almost a soft blue and the warmth of the Linen makes the flowers pop don’t you think?
It was a busy month at the studio in Waxahachie Texas for sure! Now we are in Vermont for the summer renovating our late 1800’s Village Home and doing our own DIY, one of my favorite things to do! I’ll keep you posted. You can buy any of the products we use right here on this website. Have a wonderful Summer! Best Regards Always Peggy
