window art

Here is my window art that I made for Millie's room. I dug around in my Grandma's attic so it was free and the best part was that it was pink! I was so excited...Millie helped me tear pieces of fancy paper and I used a glue stick to paste it on and then put a wire hanger on the back.

Millie's armoire

This is the armoire for Millie's room that had been sitting in our garage waiting to be painted for 2 years! I was waiting for my husband to put in shelves in the door part. One night, I decided, you know what? this is it, I am tired of it just sitting there!.... and I dragged it up the stairs with my 10 year olds help! I was going to paint the whole thing so I sanded it all down (what is cream now used to be hunter green). But then Jeff and I both kind liked the wood distressed, sanded looking, so I just decided to spray paint the green parts cream and then distress them slightly. I bought the cool green glass hardware at an antique store. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

My latest project!

Before~ you can kind of see the old upholstery underneath....

Here is my latest project...a sofa that used to be my Grandmothers, an ugly green plaid but with good bones still. I took pictures along the way...kind of a before and after. I have never done anything like this before (only a wing-back slipcover without piping)...It was alot of work but I had tons of fun doing it. Let me know what you think...I would like to begin a business redoing furniture for other people.

First Post...

I'm new to this blogging thing, although I've been looking at others for awhile. My love for recreating/sewing/decorating is how I came to find the cool ones. I am so amazed at the talent, creativity and the awesome ideas that all of the creators I come upon. Soon, I am going to post pics of some of my own creations....
