Distressing a sign






So I am still working on getting the studio ready to open on Saturday this week ( only two more sleeps...) Today I finished woodburning and painting the sign that is going to hang from the front of the shop building. But I wanted it to look "vintage", so when my -almost- 11 year old son got home from school, I gave him a piece of chain and told him he could hit it.....his eyes got really big..."you mean hit your NEW sign Mum ?" ...."yes"......"really ?"..."yes"......"oh, cool !!!!!!" so here he is, hitting the board hard ! (which little boy wouldn't like to do that huh ?)
  

 For my lessons, I also picked up a wooden table and 6 chairs I thrifted (did I tell you before, this project is a "on-a-shoestring" project ? Anyway, table is wonderful, but the chairs, the covers...horrible...so I grabbed some of my fabricstash and started pulling off all the fabric and now I am recovering them....'s gonna be all good !

 

 
Better have a little sleep as well, overslept this morning, blah !

Zo wat gaat het allemaal snel!! Morgen (oh nee, voor jou vandaag!) al de opening. Geweldig om te zien hoe je zoon zich uitleeft op het uithangbord! Ik hoop dat de opening voorspoedig zal verlopen en wens je veel succes!
