Sorry to all my northern friends, but it's warm in Florida. I would probably enjoy it if I could just relax and the beach, but no time for that right now. Out to the studio to cut and hem canvas for some floor cloths.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

I took some time off from prepping canvas for my floor cloth order...it had to dry anyway.
My daughter and I went to see Frozen. Can I just say this movie was absolutely amazing. The artistic images were beyond my imagination. Good job Disney Animators. The story and the music was also outstanding. Can't wait until it becomes a Broadway Show.
Now back to stretching canvas.

Floor cloths are such a hard thing to get people to buy into. They worry about walking on them! Well I can tell you that I have been using my floor cloths in my home for many years and they are super durable. They add a burst of color to your room, easy to maintain and hard to ruin.
I am so happy to say that I just received a large order for floor cloths today. So happy about this. They will be making a journey to an Rhode Island Primitive Shoppe.

I really am blessed to have a day job that pays the bills and a home job that add support to the day job. Today I sit here at my computer working up some wholesale prices for a new client, what an amazing feeling. Wish me luck that it all works out.
Have a Wonderful Weekend everyone!

2' X 3' floor cloth in black, heritage red and bread box
Floor cloths are very durable, easy to clean and pet friendly. They are a wonderful way to add more art to your home....art you can walk on. I personally use floor cloths in most rooms of my home, including under the kitchen table. They all still look great!
I use a heavy weight canvas that I prepare for paint by preshrinking the fabric and hemming with mitered corners. These floor cloths lay flat.
I prim both sides of floor cloth and add two coats of base color to decorated side. Sanding is done between coats and finally the design is painted. After paint cures I apply several coats of polyurethane to both sides. This will protect from moisture and traffic. The finishing touch is rubbing on and buffing off some Johnson's floor wax for extra protection.
You will receive care and installation instructions with your order.
Thank you for stopping,

After many weeks of planning, my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party was wonderful. My art areas on the other hand were not. Yesterday was all about cleaning up my garage work space where I create my floor cloths. What a huge job it became, but I feel more organized and ready to start. Today will be about my "inside" art room. Small space + too much stuff = another big project.
