I am overwhelmed by the wonderfully sweet comments that I got on my table makeover! Thank you to all of my friends that popped over for a visit and thank you to all of the new friends that stopped by, too. That is what makes blogging so much fun, I think.
My latest project isn't quite so extensive as the table, in fact this one took no more than an hour altogether. Unfortunately, I did not get a good picture before I painted and remade the top.
This is a stool that my husband brought home the day that he picked up the old Singer treadle sewing machine for me. They are both curb-side finds. The top lifts off and there is storage under it. It is such a cute little thing that I keep it tucked under my kitchen table for
When I put a linen colored cover on it I discovered that it is really quite old, the padding in it looked like horse hair.
Do you see it tucked in under there? It had the old dark finish on it. You can see more of the table before it was painted, too.
First I painted the stool with a homemade chalk paint. (And by the way, what I didn't tell you about the table yesterday, was that I painted it with the homemade chalk paint, too.)
On Saturday I had a light-bulb moment! How would the cover look done in a Union Jack like design?!
I grabbed it and ran to my sewing room and a few minutes later, it looked like this!
The colors look a little off, the turquoise is a very soft color and the red is a true red.
I love it!
The last project that I have nearly completed is seen in it's original state in the first photo in the upper middle-right hand side. It should be finished by Friday.
Once these are done I have taken the "Imagine the Impossibilities" challenge. Several very talented bloggers have gotten together and they have challenged each other to tackle some kind of a project by the end of this month that they thought was an impossibility!
My new blog friend from Thistlewood Farm can explain what it's all about right here. Just in case you wish to take the "Imagine the Impossibilities" challenge, too. Ms. Thistlewood Farm is going to learn to make homemade bread! Now that is a challenge, if I ever heard one.
Later this week, I will show you what my "Impossibility" is. And maybe you can give me some idea of what you would do with it.
I'm lovin' it! (again)
