The designs I create are first burned into the wood and then painted.
For my first furniture designs, I decided to paint all of the furniture in my daughter, Heidi's room. She's away at school, so I emptied her room, and am painting piece by piece in my garage! I took apart her loft bed and created two twin beds incorporating the night time and morning time themes.
The nighttime bed's quotes are "Listen for His Voice" on the headboard, and "His tender mercies are over all His works" on the footboard.
The morning time bed's quotes are "Lift up thy heart and rejoice" on the headboard, and "Be not weary in your well doing" on the footboard. I chose those scriptures because I felt they were appropriate for the time of day and the inspiration you might need during those times.
Here are close ups of the morning bed.
My ultimate goal with this new hobby is to quit my job and do it full time. So, if you are interested in ordering your own custom designed piece, please let me know.
