We ALL need some QUALITY THYME!

Who
 doesn't need 
MORE THYME?


There never seems to be enough hours in the day!
Especially to paint!


I found this old metal lamp at a thrift store


I decided that it would be the perfect surface to paint a design 
by 
John Sliney 
on


I cleaned and base coated the lamp
the base is about 14" wide


I used a design called
QUALITY TIME SAM


I have also painted this design a few thymes on milk cans



I painted the TOP like a folded flag



painting the stars


I painted saltboxes on the back



close up of the back of lamp



I added several coats of clear matte varnish when finished to protect the surface
With a shade on top the lamp measures about 30" tall.


I used designs from John Slineys books 
A Road to America's Past
and
A Road to Saltbox Memories
to paint this lamp
Happy Painting!
