B. Inspired: Horizontal Stripes

I recently sent this picture to my dear friend Bryce out in Hermosa Beach, California. We used to be neighbors there and I must admit, I miss the beach life a lot! Bryce is an incredible business owner with a ton of energy, ambition and supreme repurposing skills. His shop, Curious, has tons of wonderful home items, many of which he makes himself. So...after I sent him this picture as an idea for painting a wall in his newly expanded store, he came up with some inspiration of his own...

It began with this wooden dresser he found on one of his always amazing dumpster dive expeditions. This is the before...

...and this is the After. It's amazing what a little sanding and a coat of paint will do.  

And then Bryce did indeed paint a wall or two in his store. He shares these pics via his cell phone. His newly expanded space is as cheery and positive as the man himself. And this color scheme works well for the always sunny, laid back California days...

Thanks Bryce for creating such wonderful transformations from one photograph. Anyone out there have some fun painting projects they'd like to share? I'd love to see them. Just drop me an email me here.
