Omaha, Omaha!

Pin It
A piece almost always seems to tell me how it's going to look before I even start it.  Most of the time it even works out that way.  I have to say I had a plan, and then the plan went sideways.  At the same time I was talking to a friend and she encouraged me to do another Omaha Subway art piece.  Perfect timing/divine intervention do you think?  Of course it was!  So I took this dresser/console piece and here it is...Omaha Subway #3.

Remember the NFL playoff games and Payton Manning's famous "Omaha, Omaha" calls?  Yeah, around here we got enjoyed that a lot.

This is a Kent Coffee piece from "The Fanfare" line.  It had a few minor nicks that needed filled and a couple of chips out of the top, and it was a bit tired looking from lots of use.  Those 6 drawers are nice, deep, dovetailed, and really clean.  It has a 1951 stamp on the back.
Once again, I picked lots of different historical or significant fun buildings and areas to highlight.  It is by no means a complete collection, but hopefully some that will stir some pleasant memories for many.
It might not really make sense but I love to vary the fonts and size to make this a really fun piece.  Some day I might try symmetrical, but I'm not really sure if I'm a "symmetrical" kind of gal. Ha!
I'll let you know later just where to find this piece if you are interested.  Unless it ends up in my house because one of these days I'm going to keep one of these Babies!!

Have a good week.  Hope to keep adding some new things to look at as we are now entering the gear up for the Fall Prairie Market Sale!  Details on that in the button at the top of my page.
