Showing off our talents
Karl and I make a pretty good team! Good thing too, especially considering we've been married almost 22 years! (*gasp*! How did we get so old already? lol) Karl really enjoys woodworking and I enjoy decorative painting. Some of the things we do have patterns, like the Santa, decorative pieces on the shelves including the birdhouses, country girl doll, the door on the bear cabinet and other country painted items, but none of the furniture had any instructions at all. I had the pattern for the painting on the door of the bear cabinet and Karl made the cabinet to fit the door! Same thing with the bench with the pansies on it. We designed the decorative shelf with the hearts and pegs on it together. We had a picture of the bench and Karl made it to fit right on our small front porch. The only thing that Karl had a pattern for is the armoire. Here are just a few of the projects that we've done together.
