I tried to branch out in my upholstery choice on this next project. I'm always torn between wanting to touch and see the fabric in person vs. getting something fresh online. this time proximity won out and I scooped up this fabric at osgoods.
the floral before...
still needs a little adjusting... but that can wait till this afternoon.
did I mention this chair swivels? around and around- it's unstoppable!
I hope you all had a great long weekend! while it may seem like I took a very long break, the truth is I've been spending a lot of time not getting anything done. like a hamster in a wheel. I think that streak is done now... (I hope!).... and I have a fun before and after today.
the before... pretty cute already! but there were some places where to veneer was breaking and it needed some repairs.
I want to paint everything green these days!
love these copper knobs now that the paint is off!
Saturday was an exciting day! Sarah of anselblue studios brought some of her wonderful work into the shop and we spent the whole afternoon resetting displays and drinking iced coffee (with some invaluable help from justin). it was a little slice of heaven!
matted photos... notecard sets.... magnets...
market bags and molly bags and charlotte bags and aprons....
glass beaded jewlery and some small framed photos. thanks Sarah!
I am always so inspired by the playful reuse of old metal. I love the garden sculptures people make, and I have a small collection of scrap that I can't bear to see recycled. I'm always waiting for that flash of inspiration that will make it useful again. that's what makes this project especially fun for me.
this wine rack is quite an ecclectic mix. the springs are from an old bed and i coiled them through some copper plumbing pipe.
the base is an old shoe shine stand, and the topper an old door knob. now for some wine...
