Oh yeah, July is almost here.

The steampunk-themed eagle wall art is all done. I am very happy with the results since it was a last-minute idea. The wood came from the ReStore store and some items from the local thrift store. The eagle's beak is made from heavy book cover cardboard. It is all held together with varnish and wood glue plus staples. The wooden gears look like metal due to the gold and black paint that was brushed onto them. This eagle wall art is 24 inches by 43 inches in length. It is rough cut with a jigsaw. Now it must be time to relax and read some good books in a breezy shade. Cheers!

Summer Vibes and another artsy chair.

I am having positive vibes for the return of the gold-backed dollar by July 4th. Wouldn't that be amazing! Hope everyone caught a glimpse of the strawberry moon. This eagle-themed chair has worked out quite well. My thought had been to add wings but changed my mind and will keep that idea for another summer project. This chair had been covered in fabric and once that was removed the wood texture was able to shine once again. Cheers to everyone.
