frame memo boards

These are going into the booth at Serendipity Market next week!

vintage frames turned memo boards, painted by moi'...
I used aqua paint and whitewashed this one
allowing some of the antique-y gold to show through

each has a few clothespins stamped with vintage script...
now I need to make one to keep!

snowed in projects

with all this cold weather & snow & having to stay in (because of  the
weather and taking care of two sick girls-blech!), I've been able to get
some things done. This is one of them...

I spent hours dying and drying coffee filters in the oven.
{my family keeps asking why are we having filters for dinner}

trying to achieve the perfect shades of blush-y pink and coffee-stained cream

hung with off-white vintage-y looking seam binding

I think it was worth the effort...
love it
I'll be adding one to my shop
& putting one in Millie's room

I made a set for the booth at Serendipity Market and I'm making a set for my Etsy shop...

cute on her bed, don't ya think? :)

an old project

this is a project I LOVE that I did a long time ago but have never shared.
The chairs were found at Curb-mart (i.e. fancy way to say the curb) via my mom. Good eye, Mom!
I set them up and took a picture to give you the visual...
oooh! Someone's throwing away those chairs!
My amazing daughter could do something sweet with those!
Thanks chair-throwing-away-people!
I'll take 'em!

I put them side-by-side & gave them a light coat of matte mod podge
to keep the paint at just the right chippy-ness.

I found the perfect board/door thing combing the my grandma's attic

I added some padding and fabric to the board and finished it with black braided trim.
I bought this great black & white houndstooth suiting fabric at a
garage sale and covered a rectangle pillow form.
I love the way this pillow turned out.

Is this not the cutest little bench?!
