Years ago, when I was first married, my Mom and I took a class in tole painting. It was at a huge craft shop that used to be nearby. It had 4 floors of different types of projects: smocking and heirloom, wooden items, cross-stitch and needlework, knitting, painting, etc. It was awesome, but unfortunately went out of business after AC Moore and Michael's arrived. They can't hold a candle to that old store. It was where I found my first Sew Beautiful magazine when I was a teen!
This is one of the projects we did in the class. It is on slate and my Mom has the same one at her house. I love it!! So, anyway, I haven't done any tole painting since then, but I was thinking how nice it would be to make a little something for my Mom & Dad's beach house. I found the lighthouses pattern on ebay for $1. It is meant for glass ornaments, but I am thinking of a small wood plaque or Shaker box. Do you think it will come back to me??
