I purchased two chairs on the last day of an Estate Sale…The minute I saw them I knew what I would do with them.
Then I hit a snag…finding the time to do a seemingly simple project.
My biggest dilemma was whether or not to paint the chairs…painting a chair is not as easy as it sounds…there are nooks, crannies, spindles and carved legs to deal with…and truth be told my attention span is more suited to painting a box.
This morning I made the decision to move forward with the project…no paint, just recover the seat cushions.
Here it is an hour later and the project is finished and I am drafting my blog and ready to link up to Miss Mustard Seeds Furniture Friday Blog…
I am really happy that I did not paint the chairs…they look great with the original finish and the certified organic burlap coffee bag seat cover. New dilemma…keep them or take them to shop?
How cute are these little guys…Pumpkin Snowmen Welcome You to our Home this Christmas!!!
Back in early October I ventured into Houston to the open air produce market to purchase my heirloom pumpkins as well as my seemingly ordinary pumpkins. I really love mixing the different types and shapes of pumpkins to create an interesting look for Fall. They really welcome the season the changing season without having to go all out. However, I like the pumpkins so much I always have a difficult time disposing of them when its time to put the Christmas decorations up. This year I stumbled on a crafty blogger who had a stellar idea on extending the life of her pumpkins.
Coco Chanel once stated that “Imitation is the highest form of flattery” so I hope Stephanie over at Under the Table and Dreaming will be flattered should she happen to see that I borrowed her wonderful idea.
