Fabric Matters

Hello all,

Today I am sharing 2 different upholstery projects I completed last week.

These transformations make it plain to see how much the fabric you choose can make a difference.

A little hiatus

Hi all,

Yes, I have been M.I.A.!

Oh, I have lots of reasons or excuses.  Whatever you want to call them.  The truth is I was being pulled in too many different directions and needed a break.

While I have been away from my blog, I have learned a new skill.  I can now arm knit, arm crochet and finger knit and finger crochet.  It's been fun and a great way to fill in some of my Christmas gifts.

I am prepping for a craft show this coming weekend, so the crafting, painting and building is still happening.

Let me share a few things I have done lately.

I made this out of some scrap wood and trim I received.  I added slivers of legs and a cool metal decorative piece.  Wouldn't it look lovely over a mantle?

This pair of pedestals was made from 3 different pieces.  The main piece was from a bed.



This used to be a brown metal piece with a butterfly and the word believe in it.  I painted it all white, distressed it and made some angel wings to adorn the piece.  Sorry, I am too lazy right now to fix the picture and turn it the correct way.  

Hope you are all well on your way to a deserved extended weekend coming up next weekend for Thanksgiving.  Enjoy it!
