What to do with a bed head...

Hiya lovelies,
I wanted to show you all my newest painting. I was so lucky to pick up 2 big, old timber bed heads a while ago (hmm, found them a few days ago in the chaos that is our garage)that i knew would be perfect for painting on. So a few days ago i got hubs to cut them down for me so i could use the top scrolly half...but as the 'cut' bit fell to the ground i thought Hmmmmm, i can do something with that....
No timber ever gets wasted here, LOL.

So i grabbed the brushes....and off i went..
Some stripes to get me started and see where it takes me.

I thought i took a 'mid-paint' photo but i must not have...dang it.

So here is the finished product.


I left the timber legs on so it could be used to sit on a sideboard surrounded by pretties,as a bedhead, or popped on the porch or a zillion other places. OR the legs can be cut off and the painting hung on the wall.
I've listed this one on Ebay , you can click HERE to see it.

So my week of Painting Plenty of Pretty Pink Roses has been busy and fun! I might even continue it next week.

Well i hope you all have a safe and fun weekend ahead, we have Sam's birthday party on sunday @ Lollipops Playland, we cant wait, it'll be so much fun for Sam and his friends. I cant believe my boy will be 6 in 4 days (his birthday is actually on Tuesday next week). He might be growing up but he is still my best little buddy *smiles a teary smile*.

HAPPY WEEKEND LADIES !!

Love n Hugs,
Shann xxxooo
