Day 29 - 'Love' on Barnboard

I've had these two, 28" pieces of old, barn wood for a very long time and have always known exactly what I wanted to do with them.  
Somewhere in the wee hours of last night, long after Hubs had turned in, I pulled out paint and brushes and set to work.  The painting was the fun part and a good start.  Now the actual 'work' begins.  There will be sanding and protective coats of poly to apply and more sanding and more poly and hooks to add to the backs.
Eventually, they will be nice pieces of wall art and will end up on our Etsy site.  We've had a shop there for a while.  As usual, it took me ages to get the hang of setting it up but I'm so glad I did.  The little shop gives us an opportunity to play at making things without having to find places to put them.  Right now, the inventory in the shop is a bit depleted because of holiday purchases and I need to spend a day or two with the camera in order to add other items.  The little shop won't make us rich but we are 'still finding cash' as the result of it and the continued activity helps bring enjoyment to our days.
