After finishing a mural in chalk on chalkboard paint yesterday in Pacific Heights, I was reminded how much I enjoy murals. They are the perfect art form to transform a space from blah to boldly beautiful!
As May springs forward with all the Beltane promise of abundance and joy, I finished a new Art Furniture piece. In the Steampunk tradition of updating the old with swankety style, this New Growth Lingerie Chest is waiting to gracefully adorn your dressing room.
