I owe it all to my Favourite Lucy store in North Vancouver Canada for my inspiration . Well its not the really called that ,but this store has such beautiful vintage furniture & items . THEN I met an amazing Talented wood artist Kristy's , and her husband George from 4 love of wood who inspired me further . I followed their blog and I was so amazed with all Kristy's creations. PLease check out her blog at http://4theloveofwood.blogspot.ca , she is truly amazing & talented . George has an online store that sells unique vintage door pulls and vintage finds . WE spent a wonderful day together last September painting and learning about this wonderful world of painting .
