Celtic Curves

I'm proud to announce I now have a few sponsors! Since St. Patrick's Day is this Thursday, I want to tell you about my newest sponsor, Celtic Curves. You might want to grab the boys in your life--they'll love this. You will, too! Celtic Curves is owned and operated by Duncan Carmichael. I've had the pleasure of he and his wife, Brenda's friendship for about 6 years now. Duncan does custom paint on just about anything--from vintage appliances, motorcycles, and skateboards to beautiful shabby furniture, lamps, vintage fans, iron bed, garden furniture and more for Brenda's antiques business, Isabeau! I will tell you more about Isabeau, and the wonderful items Brenda has later this week! About a year ago he rebuilt the front end of my car after I was in an accident. He matched the paint so well the only way I can tell anything is different is they unique way he finished off the pinstripe!

As a side note, I'm sorry about the layout of this post. I'm having problems getting the spacing to work out. I think I have an HTML error where I embedded the video link. Will fix ASAP!

View a documentary on Celtic Curves as seen on Virginia Currents PBS Ch.23 in Richmond, Virginia.

Below are some photos I borrowed (with his permission) from his website (http://www.celticcurves.net/)


The great bench above is in his dining room. It is a cast iron Victorian garden bench he fully restored.  

Here is another of his wonderful fans.  He walks you through part of the restoration process in the video link above. 


He restored this refrigerator as a storage cupboard for a friend of mine.  


He also does custom signs for shops. I need to have him make some faux vintage French  signs for me! 


Here are a few more of his restored fans.
Duncan specializes in trick paint and candy colors. These really make things pop. It looks like there is glitter under the clear coat!
This Harley belongs to a mutual friend that lives nearby where he did the show--he drove it in the antiques store! That's a whole new spin of bull in a china shop!
He does all of this by hand!
He also does clothing, art, and more!
Check out the Skunk skin helmet!
This is a fan he restored. He buys really crusty fans and restores them--he goes the extra mile and uses reproduction fabric wrapped cords.
He is known for his intricate Celtic knot-work.
Check back later this week to see his wife's antiques business! She carries beautiful shabby chic furniture, accessories, and vintage clothing! I hope you enjoyed this manly post!
