Be sure to pick up the May/June/July issue of Cottage Life magazine, where you will find my article on how to paint a modern cottage sign. I had such a great time working on this – special thanks to Braden for this opportunity.

Boxcar Social

Here’s an epic 18’-wide chalkboard I completed at Boxcar Social on Queen St. E. last weekend. Thanks again to Alex and Kat for this amazing opportunity.

Stop by 4 Boulton Ave. to grab a great coffee and check out the new board.
