SUNSHINE ON A STORMY DAY!!

Last weekend I was trawling Etsy for some art to hang on the kiddies bedroom wall..before I knew it I had spent hundreds of dollars in my shopping cart so needless to say I quickly emptied my trolley and decided to do a bit of upcycling myself instead!

I had a few canvases lying around in my front porch..(now nearly new office!!)

I got to work on one of our stormiest and wettest days so far this year… in my kitchen using the floor as my workspace!

I used some testers of Annie Sloan chalk paint and started to slowly transform my discount canvases into kiddy art!

My little man became curious as to what was going on and straight away started putting in requests for some commissions…and here is the final result of a hard day’s work on a stormy day!

….got me thinking…. it’s been sooo long since i took out my paints…i need to get the creative juices flowing again….create a few characters of my own…mmmm..here’s a few more you might recognise… 🙂

WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN……

WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN…..

Well this is the first challenge!… our front porch..well  eh..more like a dumping ground or no man’s land, dead space or however you’d like to call it!! We don’t use our front door at the moment (as you can tell) and although I insist that we WILL in the future ,my friend and neighbour has proclaimed that  ‘No one will ever use your front door’…I shall prove him wrong !! MK you know who you are!!! 😉

My challenge is to de clutter, clear and paint the space and turn it into a lovely positive creative workspace!!!

My lovely Marito ( Marito equals Husband in Italian – my husband is Italian Sardo!) promised meIMG_2777 if I cleared the room that he would paint it…watch this space!!

This is the view from our sitting room! nice!
