On occasion….I faux finish a piece of furniture and then don’t want to give it back to the client.
Yeah, this yellow number is one of those pieces. I named her Lola. I don’t know why….
She was U.G.G.G.G.G.G.G.G.G.G.G.L.Y.Y.Y.Y.Y.Y.Y.Y……. and had been in my basement for a couple of years.
I was itching to paint something yellow and when I sprayed it……it bubbled and “fish- eyed” and got even funkier….
But the sanding started to make it cuter…. (notice I am sanding in the living room. “The Biggest Loser” is on in the background).
Then the glazing made it cuter still…..
And the harlequin stencil just finished it off.
It’s amazing to me that something that started off so ugly can be transformed into something so cute.
And that’s why I love what I do. It’s the power of paint.
“Lola” is being auctioned off here in Kansas City at a fundraiser for a private school. If you are in the KC area and interested in bidding, I can put you in touch with the appropriate people. So have your people call my people……

I see what you mean! She is wonderful! I love how she is peeking out from under that fern. One day though…I want a whole floor done in a worn harlequin design…
Beautiful table!!!! Another original Jennifer project that has me in search of a table like that to refinish. Great job!!
You are amazing!!! SO Talented!
That table turned out great! What a beautiful finish… love the bubbling, cracking and fish eyeing that occurred after you sprayed the base coat. I’m sure she will do well at auction.
Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl! I couldn’t help but sing that once I saw that you named her! She is definatley a beautiful showgirl! I love it!
It’s awesome! You are seriously talented. I never would have come up with something so amazing. Love it!
