As you can see, I just couldn't deal with the
I scored a canvas patio frame, sans the canvas cover, for a score of $40. I painted the top of the frame a nice brick red, but left the poles black. I'm trying for some French theme here. Not sure which one though, just yet.
I swear I found every stinking spare piece of 1 x 3's on the side of the road I could and stained to go along with the faux brick paneling Home Depot was so nice to start selling. I scarfed about 4 panels at $25 a piece and cut them to size.
Topped with a bit of grapevine (note to self: NEVER use that stuff until it's been soaked in water for awhile!) Then a few faux flowers, a couple stained crates, and..... DONE!
So, after a few chachkas added here and there, these are the main items I've recently finished up to sell so far......
A Belgian Linen Ottoman
A French Belgian Linen Chair!
And, a French Grey Dresser!
I'm quite happy how everything has turned out so far, even though I've noticed I need more "smalls" that I can't seem to make fast enough between 4 kids; getting 2 of them ready for college, 1 of them ready for homeschooling, and another accustomed to public school again.
So come on! Come check me out now!
Now, here's a peak into my current project, which is nearly finished. I'm SO over-the-moon about it!
