Mellow Yellow

I loved the lines on this chair, but I was a little nervous on how it might turn out.
Luckily,  I LOVE IT!!!

BEFORE
Sturdy, but lacking

I can't resist a little bit of  gathering, bunching, pleating. Whatever you call it, I can't RESIST it.

AFTER
Soft yellow with distressed wood accents

This is what I love about solid colors.  You can mix and match your accessories.


This cutie is headed to the UMBRELLA BIRD


HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!!

Pretty in Pink Reveal

I loved this chair from the moment I saw her at a yard sale.  She is in meticulous condition! No pets, no smoke and the upholstery is untouched.  I was waiting for inspiration on how to "dress" her, and then it came to me.

BEFORE

She deserved to keep a little bit of leg showing. Hey, if you've got them, flaunt them.


And here she is all dressed up. Doesn't she look comfy?  She is going to a local decor shop to promote my business.  Everyone in blogville, wish me luck!!


AFTER


p.s.  I know I need to work on my photography skills, but my 3 year old is running around, half naked, and I need to catch him and put him in the tub!!!


HAPPY WEDNESDAY

I've got upholstery fever!!!

 I love reupholstering and slipcovering.  I think I have found my niche ladies!! You will see painted projects now and then, but I find that my true love is slipcovering and upholstering those unique pieces.

 This chair was stuffed with straw!! Doesn't that mean it's really really old?
I pulled off the original upholstery, gave it some new filling and transformed it to today's style.

These guys are for my basement family room.  I just slapped some paint on them and called them mine.  I do love their shape and I try real hard not to get rid of all the good stuff.  Sometimes my husband thinks my goal is to empty the house.  Crazy thought, but he does have a point.  Anyway, these two are staying with us.

A COUPLE OF FUN FINDS. 

ISN'T HE MANLY?  I THINK HE WOULD BE A GREAT FATHER'S DAY PRESENT FOR THE KING OF YOUR CASTLE.





LOOK HOW CUTE SHE IS!!!  PRETTY IN PINK AND ABSOLUTELY NO WEAR AND TEAR ON HER.  SOMEONE LOVED HER VERY MUCH AND I WAS LUCKY TO FIND HER.



THESE GALS ARE NEXT!!! STAY TUNED FOR A HUGE REVEAL.


HAPPY WEDNESDAY!  THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ME AND MY CRAZY PROJECTS!!!
