I met Romlin and Amanda a few years back at one of our summer festivals.
Romlin and her daughter Amanda are the types of people that instantly becomes a friend.
I've done several pieces for their home in the past.
These are the most recent items I have been working on for them.
The chair . . .well that is pretty self-explanatory.
It's one of "those" chairs - the kind that I wish I could find more often.
The kind you find in a library or law office.
The kind that is heavy and solid and seems to wrap around you.
Soon - it will be wrapping around Romlin and Amanda.
The bench - that is a more unique item.
Last year I found a large bench on Craigslist that I made over for our living room.
Romlin saw it and wanted one.
She liked how my bench was long and narrow - different from most standard benches.
I have never found another bench like mine - maybe that was because it had been custom designed.
But I did find 2 long and narrow benches.
That's another story that I will save for another post when this is finished.
We decided to take the creative approach and connected them together.
I am working on this right now.
Blocks of base color have been laid in.
Tonight . . .I will start to bring it life.
More pictures to come!
I love taking cast-offs and giving them new life.
