Solution to a Hole in my Vintage Tapestry!

Isn't it funny when you just can't think of a solution to a problem and someone walks up and gives it to you on a silver platter? In this case, I had picked up an old tapestry. The problem: a hole right in the middle of it. Too big to repair without notice. One day, my lovely daughter, Lisa says, "why don't you just cover a stool with it!"

I just happened to pick up this very old and very ugly stool...

My addiction to Furniture!

I am standing up and admitting that I have an addiction! But I am really sitting down.

An addiction to abused, beaten, broken and old furniture! Especially old stuff because it's usually all wood.

I don't need anymore.


I don't really want anymore. Um, maybe...


But, I can't help myself when I know what it could look like and keep it out of the landfill.

Guest Bedroom Redo...Again!

I really do have other things to do, but just get such a kick out of decorating that I repainted my largest guest bedroom...again!
That would be four times in 10 years! Not bad for me!!! Hubby says that I am making the house smaller with paint a millimeter at a time! Smile
Here is the before, when I redid it a couple of years ago and now the much simpler after...

Oh so French End Tables!

Do you love the French Look as much as I do?


Do you also love the look of a finished piece after it was painted and loved with Chalk Paint?

 

So do I! That brings me to these to end tables...

Do you remember this teacup CANDLEIER that I made and did a post on last year? No?
