Five crafters - designers, adding their own artistic touch to the canvas of an Adirondack chair from TV Celebrity Kathy Peterson's latest line of outdoor furniture and then blogging about It! Get in on the Blog Hop beginning Tuesday, July 20th!
Online PR News – 19-July-2010 – – For those looking for an excellent summer project, look no further than the vibrant social media realm. TV designer, Kathy Peterson, is using her exclusive new line of patio furniture, Kathy Peterson Inspired-Outdoor Lifestyles to excite creative mastery in crafters everywhere.
Kathy Peterson has hand selected five diverse designers with talents in all areas of creativity to put her own unique decorating touch on an unfinished Adirondack chair from Kathy’s line. Susequently, each designer's project will be highlighted every Tuesday from July 20 to August 17 with blogger postings of photos, directions, inspirations, and materials for her distinctive spin.
“When I was creating my line of patio furniture, I wanted to offer as many color options as possible,” said designer Peterson. “But, I also wanted to invite the creative in all of us to participate in the fun, so I crafted each piece from Cypress to allow for easy painting.” As a resilient hardwood, Cypress has natural oil embedded in the heartwood to make it perfect for the out-of-doors with a natural resistance to insects and decay. When kiln dried, cypress has little tendency to warp or cup. Beyond its durability, this wood readily accepts paints and stains. “I wanted to find a way to inspire people to put their own personal touch on their outdoor living spaces,” Peterson commented. Everyone involved is anxious to see the completed projects. “I’ve heard buzzing about glitter and zebra print, so I’m definitely on board!” said one avid reader.
The versatile designers include Margot Potter, The Impatient Crafter TV personality cracking up readers and inspiring creativity in six humorous how-to design books; Kathy Cano-Murillo, author of the crafting book “Waking Up in the Land of Glitter”; Julianna Hudgins, an HGTV and DIY network regular; Julie Fillo, an off beat painter whose work reflects folk tendencies and soul-searching inspiration, and Pat Sloan, a highly sought quilt designer and master quilter. “I love that each designer is so different,” said blog hop coordinator Hazel Jennings. “I can’t wait to see five completely different Adirondack chairs. But more than that, I can’t wait to see the flood of projects inspired by them!”
