Monday Things

Good Morning!  Did you all enjoy your weekends or was it too hot or rainy to enjoy anything?  I worked all weekend developing transfers for a couple of pieces furniture we are working on.

Today's post contains two items that are not similar in nature but that doesn't matter.  This blog has never claimed to make sense.

Take a look.

This is called a cropped brush.  The inventor, Mark Wholey, came up with this version out of frustration and necessity.  I like its practicality and the fact that it is made in the USA.

“While putting a finish on a handmade coffee table, the brush I was using fell apart. I repaired it by wedging the handle at a right angle into the steel band. I completed the project with the ‘fixed’ brush and was amazed how comfortable it was to use.”  You may click here for all the particulars.

And ...


This is a decorating idea that makes a dramatic statement for very little time and money.
"What a little spray paint can do! Choose a single standout hue to turn a jumbled collection of garage sale finds into a unified display for a wall, mantel or shelf."  This idea is from Midwest Living.  All the particulars can be found here. 
I hope you have found these interesting.  Gives us food for thought.
Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
