I love taking beautiful pieces of decor or furniture and turning them into works of art. Especially do the vintage ones turn out awesome, with their ornate, flamboyant, often highly wrought architecture.
First I choose just the right color of chalk paint, picturing how it would blend into my own home, a western ranch house, or perhaps a Southern mansion. After painting it with 2-3 layers, I then either distress it by sanding, or antique it. A lot of thought, passion and love goes into each piece.
THE FIRST was Cool Creek Designs, a jewelry line inspired out of a love of Boho and Country chic style. I opened this shop in 2011. Below is a preview of the items I have created for that shop, including some from my Country Boho Collection. [Click on any of the images for a better description.]
