Cooler Weather

It's formal season! I recently had the pleasure of painting this a cooler for a lovely friend of mine for the Texas Delt Spring Formal. She requested Texas and beer themes, which was such a perfect theme for that almost summer almost time for the beach feel. Want to see the final product?

Cooler Divided 2.0

Happy Friday! For today's post I am featuring the latest cooler I painted. This cooler was customized for a couple getting married this month, so I had to wait a little bit to post it. My amazing hair stylist Shara recently ordered a cooler during the holidays, and her friend Cortni (who also works with her and is wonderful!) decided it would be a great gift for a wedding!  The bride went to LSU and is a huge Saint fan, and the groom went to Texas (Hook 'em!) and is big Dallas Cowboys fan. I decided to split the cooler right down the middle with the bride's teams on one side and the groom's on the other. Here's  a snapshot of the front: 

I have painted a few Saints themed coolers, and I always love the way their colors look together. The metallic gold really pops against the black background.

I wanted to include more of the bride and groom's college traditions in the cooler design, so on the back I painted one side with slogans from each school: "Love Purple Live Gold" for LSU and "Hook 'Em" for Texas complete with a little tribute to the happy couple in the middle!

Here's a closer look at the LSU side; Geaux Tigers!

Below is a picture groom's side dedicated to the Dallas Cowboys; I was really happy with the way the lettering outlined in metallic silver looked against the bold blue. 

Cheers to the happy couple. If you are interested in ordering a cooler, please send an email to bkraftydesigns@yahoo.com. Happy Friday!
