Cute little signages

I have painted some little signage to sell. Quite fun to do this kind of little project as you get to choose different colours for each background. Anyway, in this case the wording is more important then the simple design.

Refurbished old stools.

Old stools should not be discarded. You can always re-painted and refurbished to make it more interesting and matching with your current interior decor. In fact I enjoy painting the stools even though I know in the end people are going to sit on it. It just make you feel honored to be sitting on a very nice chair. The only thing about re-painting an old chair is the sandpapering to get rid of the old varnish and paint.

Organic surface

I have made a brown box into my brochure holder by painting a hydrangea on it. I also did a signage out of a brown paper bag. I did not paint any background colour on both item and I thought it looks very organic in its original form.

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to promote my book at the Central Market, KL. To those who came to watch me do a live demo, thanks for taking the interest. Those who had bought the book, thank you so much for the support.

Selamat datang Plaques

These two plaques were painted for my American customerswho wanted to have a "Selamat Datang" plaque to be hang on the front doors of their houses in the USA. Very different from most of the people here who wants to have a "Welcome" sign at their houses.
