And a little aluminum pot I painted black and the top I was shown how to do checkerboard from my good friend Cathy over at http://tolentreasures.blogspot.com/ with some stars. The little signs are based on a Sue Allemand design and I made them just small enough to hang on a wall or hang off a little knob or doorhandle.
I have painted on so many surfaces over the years, soap, glass, canvas, mostly wood, tea pots, etc. Recycling is a great way to make something old look new again. So look around and that old coffee pot, don't throw it away, keep it or ask someone like me to paint it. You never know what it will end up looking like.
Have a wondeful day.
