I have been so busy lately, I think every room has a different project going on in it. But I do think I thrive off of so much. I get so excited to start something new, I just can't wait to see what a piece will turn out like. SO here with the first pic- a darling pedestal table- i could not resist the feet, or the carved detail in the base and of course with my love for chairs could not leave the store without those four charmers. So with my fav- Heirloom white paint, i sanded-painted-distressed and re-upholstered in red-toile. 4th of July coming up so i thought the red toile would be good for shoppe.
Are these not so cute, one i came across and couldn't leave behind, and the other was given to me by my older brother Tim & his Wife Chrissy, the chair had belonged to her Mother.
I painted one in cream & one in heirloom white- barely distressing both-and because of Tea Party they both got upholstered in shades of pink fabric. I probably will swap out for another fabric as soon as i can decide. Aren't they just Darling, very dainty and sweet.
This little piano seat, the seat lifts up for storage, i thought was so cute, and practical -If i must say so myself. I painted- and added some padding-and a sheer thin red drapery fabric( that i cut up to use) My favorite fabrics are usually old drapes, table cloths, things like that- (all about re-purposing), but turned out just lovely.
Now this is so not my style at all- The Chair itself I love, but a Customer wanted me to just recover with the brown fabric, giving it a new and updated look, the old pink fabric was torn, the arms were pretty worn & it didn't match her decor.
One of my first upholstery jobs at my new shoppe, I hope she likes it.
It is so hard to re-do or re-upholster a piece when it isn't your style.
I so badly wanted to paint it. But nope, had to resist.
SO these are all of my past weeks projects- plus the party, Yikes what a week, but oh do i love it!!
And wait till you see what i just bought from my neighbor Wayne( he owns "The Shack") a lil- shop where he sells vintage records-tapes-8 tracks -movies books all $1.00 here next to my shoppe, I can't wait to show you!!!
