Living room nook makeover. A beloved Uncles Art now grace these walls

Ikea wooden storage given a groovin' new look.

A view from the sofa of Bob Carriero's art.  A very talented and beloved uncle of my husbands.  This hangs above a piece of  resurfaced furniture found curbside in Waitsfield.

I absolutley love the image and colors in this one of a kind painting.   "Jesus in Swiss Cheeze" as dubbed by family members who so graciously parted with this treasure.

This is the Before shot of a curbside find.  Look at those legs!!!

Bold Red and gorgeous paper gave this one a new lease on life. Inside is a lovely Aubergine.  Doors or no, I can't decide, perhaps chicken wire so you can see inside.  For now it holds all my garage sale art books and art mags.  Lovely organization!!

The top has a variety of red black and gold papers.  Then seeled in glossy poly to give it a hard and durable finish.  It looks pretty fab with the painting above, I'm very pleased with the finished look despite the doorless issue.
Please weigh in doors or no doors?

Red Hen Inspired Storage

This storage Cabinet was designed for the Red Hen Bakery and Cafe.  They plan to use it for equipment and supply storage in the main cafe restroom.   I couldn't resist going with the "Hens gone wild" look.


 Side view, right and left have a little added interest.

More Music is Art Fest

Music is Art Festival

Music is art Festival at Albright Knox Art Gallery , Delaware Park, Buffalo,NY.  September 11, 2010
My stubborn computer will not allow me to upload more than one picture in this post.  I know not why. This artist just blew me away.  I love her over sized and vibrantly painted canvases.  Uunfortunately I cannot find her card to tell you her name or where you can get her work.  Thought I'd share anyway.  Post her name to comments if she looks familiar!!
