Hand Painted Nightstands

Instead of working on projects all weekend.  I've been listing furniture on Craigslist and packing boxes.  Moving is never fun, especially if you are talking a 2200 mile move.  The bad news is that instead of making new things, I'm getting rid of things, which means I won't have any new projects until the end of August.

Luckily, my partner in crime, Elaine has stepped up to the plate.  She's got some pretty awesome projects she's been working on.  For those of you who don't know.  I moved to Cincinnati, OH 2 years ago for hubby's job, but am originally from Pasadena, CA.  We now have the opportunity to go back and Elaine and I can reunite.  So in the next few months you'll see some changes (good ones), some revamping, and a lot more projects from Elaine.

Here are some really cool night stands that she painted in a green and then hand painted the branch design.  Aren't they cool, organic, and fun?
