Don't tell me....

...that you have lost your canvas again!!

And, now you have this strong urge to paint?!

No, no...Not the wall!

Here, take this table and that chest

And paint away!

Gorgeous hand painted furniture from Rajasthan, India!

Thank God for lost canvases! ;-)

Now Maddie and I must either arm wrestle for that last peice, or perhaps there are two of them? I kinda like Maddie, I don't want her beating me up for a small cabinet.
How abundant are these in India, and what would you pay for one?
Curious! And interested.

Gillian, am so glad you and Maddie are friends! :-)

To answer your question, Gillian - The ones showcased in this post are from Rajasthan. There are more varieties of painted furniture available in other parts of India too. I am sure you can order these online..but I would advise you to go for a well known online store. In terms of price, depending upon the quality of wood and work, and the amount of work, the chest could cost between USD 175 to USD 400 (this is based on pieces I have seen and liked so far)
