Okay! I am, admittedly, a little behind on my blogging. The hustle continues though: crafting, creating, custom orders, playing music, Kickstarter stuff, etc. I have not given up on my Furniture for the Fight project! I may have fallen a little behind, but this project is so important to me. I had the month of May carved out in honor of Immigrant Asian American Month and a percentage of the proceeds will go to National Immigration Forum.
A little back story…
I found this handmade bookshelf at the side of the road. It had a lot of texture and personality. It was solid, for sure. I pulled over, put her in the back of the truck, and brought her straight to the studio.
After stripping off the drab brown paint, I got her a good sanding. I applied a creamy white paint with my go to walnut stain. The grooves in the wood held the stain nicely to accentuate the unique texture of the wood. My favorite part of this piece is the vibrant Japanese paper applied to the back of the shelves. The red and the gold really give this simple bookshelf a lot of personality.
If interested, go ahead and contact me. Again, a percentage of the proceeds will go to National Immigration Forum. Email me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org)
