Hand Painted Furniture

I bought three benches at the thrift store last week and have been giving them a new life. I believe I'll have them ready to post, in their varying stages, within the next few days.
In the meantime I walked around the house and snapped a few of the pieces that I did when I owned my gallery. The 'Water table' is a farm auction find made of wide, mismatched planks. I cut the legs down to make it a coffee table height and have used it in that fashion ever since.
The bench is a theatre seat that folds flat for storage...a fabulous design and so incredibly comfortable one could even fall asleep during a boring performance. I had about 7 of them and painted and sold them all keeping this one, that I painted with my fingerprints, as part of my collection. I still have one more unpainted one in storage and one day...
The little hall table is one of many, and during the time I was doing these lizards and frogs just kept leaping onto the surface.
