What a fun weekend! It was filled with family fun AND talks of decorating!
The newlyweds came home and we got to meet Gordita. She is growing but still full of lots of puppy spunk…
And Puppy Kisses!
Maggie watched behind the scenes fearing the worse…. Nervous as the cat she is that we had brought another beloved pet into her domain to stay. She watched with scary eyes, rarely taking her eyes off of the puppy.
My sister in law Connie was over. Connie loves to decorate too. We went through fabric books searching for a nice piece to go on Jamie’s salvaged chair.
I was looking on my computer trying to find a “before” picture of this chair (with no luck). It was one of those great finds that you are SO excited about…a chair abandoned by someone moving from an apartment and having no interest in a piece of furniture with SO much character! What is wrong with these people? It was a dull, scratched white with no seat or back, just sitting by the dumpster. Jamie looked at me in disbelief when I stopped my SUV, opened the back door and quickly threw our great salvaged piece in the back. She is in training, don’t you know?
Here it is painted and sanded with a bottom but still in need of a back and FABRIC!
Below are a couple of her favorites. She has darling vintage turquoise chairs in her living room, so this piece with the blue would be so cute.
But isn’t this a black and white fabric worthy of strong consideration? We got busy doing other things and she still hasn’t given me her final decision.
On to another project. I have a pair of wingbacks that are probably 22 years old. When they left my living room I just couldn’t part with them because I loved the legs. The structure is still solid but the fabric certainly needs changing. I have a new place where they the chairs can reside ~~ in the downstairs family room. It will be fun to have them reupholstered.
Here’s what I’m strongly considering. Doesn’t it tie in with the other patterns and elements in the room?
While I had my strong son in law home along with my strong husband, I had them move some other furniture around. I am now sitting at my new to me desk and am in the midst of flip flopping our downstairs furniture upstairs. Everything is a mess right now but hopefully I will have some finished results to share soon.
Lots of projects going on along with preparing silk plants for my spring show. Life is busy but life is good!
I hope you are feeling the same way.
Until next time……
