Pallet Fireplace, Ghostbusters Painting & Beatles Chair - Thanks Pinterest!


So, I LOVE looking at Pinterest, so many talented people and their amazing ideas!   
We decided, what the heck, let's give it a try.  :) 

A) Saw a simular painting and decided to give it a try. I had an unused canvas and I love the character Stay Puft from the Ghostbusters' Movie.    :)

B) A while back, we had an electric fireplace that was given to me by my grandmother.    We ended up purchasing a used 70 gallon fish tank.  We gave the fireplace to my brother & sister-in-law. After a few years, we ended up getting rid of the fish tank (it sprang an unfixable leak).   I missed having that fireplace mantle, so decided after looking on Pinterest to make our own fireplace mantle.  We picked up the pallets free of charge from my workplace (as they just recycle them)  Mr. Bob then got to work and created this fireplace - I love it so much!!!  :)

C) A few years back, a Beatle's Sofa appeared online with a price tag of over $2000.00.   Something we could not afford (plus the fact we own cats, did not want it getting ruined by being scratched apart).   One day I spotted a pillow that was the same fabric on the couch.   Around the same time my cousin was cleaning house and gave us a chair that was in a little need of repair.   So we actually cut apart and reused and Ikea table cloth for the seat portion and painted the ugly brown chair black and placed that nice little pillow on it.   Total price:  Chair = Free.  Pillow = $50.00.  Ikea Table Cloth = $10.00.  :). Not bad!!!   :).  So awesome!!   Goes with my Yellow Submarine theme :)

Gentle Flying Glove from the YELLOW SUBMARINE



So back in the summer 2016, we visited a local garden shop and found x2 metal pointing hands.  I instantly knew what I was going to do with one of them.   Had my husband mount one to a wooden board and painted up my own little Flying Gentle Glove from the Yellow Submarine movie!    I love the YELLOW SUBMARINE!!  LOL

Yellow Submarine Painting - Throwback to 2014 :)

I'm baaaack!   Did you miss me?

So I'm just going to post a painting from 2014 - I'm in LOVE with everything about the movie YELLOW SUBMARINE - so back in February 2014 I had a old school window frame my mom purchased for me and had my husband cut out some tiles for me to paint on.   Remember the scene where John, Ringo and George are looking for Paul?  They start opening doors and there is a giant ape grabbing at a lady in bed who is screaming?   I created my own.  LOL.   Stay tuned.  I've been busy over the past two years, I'll try and keep this blog up from now on.   :).    I think over the next little bit I'm going to change it to more artwork, etc...    Stay tuned :)
