Starting a new project

A very sweet customer of mine from one of my craft shows, gave me this antique sock stretcher to paint on. I've had it in my stash for a few years now so I think it's time to get it painted. I think I will paint a prim scene on it. IT's very large, it measures 38 inches long!

And here it is with the first basecoat, don't worry, it's not staying this dark brown color!


  1. That's one big sock stretcher! Can't wait to see what you do with it :)

  2. Becky, are you teasing us? LOL, can't wait to see what you do with it!

  3. Thanks Kim and Eileen! The hardest part is now trying to come up with a design to paint on it!!!

  4. Wow that is going to be one longggg project, LOL
    What a nice customer Becky. Funny I have a 2 man saw a neighbour game me years ago and it still hangs in the basement unpainted. Guess we all have something in the stash.
    Can't wait to see what you will paint. Anything with sunflowers maybe since they are tall????
    Hurry and show us.

  5. Les, I have a 2 man saw in the stash too, that I've neve painted. I've got the pattern all drawn out for the sock, now to paint it.

  6. I can't wait to see what you do with this, Valerie

  7. Keep watching, Valerie. I started painting the design on it yesterday!


I love to hear what you have to say! Feel free to leave a comment!
