We paint furniture to be resold in the two shops that Restore Decor operate in Edwardsville, IL.
The proceeds go towards many different charities.
I also do some specialized acrylic painting for them. So far I have painted : a beach scene on a stool, a giant sunflower on a headboard, Frank Lloyd Wright/Craftsman era motif on a magazine rack, a peacock on a bed tray. I am currently working on another peacock motif atop a piano bench.
This is a photo of the beach scene on a little stool. The idea behind this is to make more money for the charity by enhancing an otherwise bland piece of furniture.
I guess I must be doing something right because the pieces are selling and they keep asking me to paint more!!
