Duncan Phyfe chair

So this ONE chair was just calling my name. I found this chair also in my parent's basement and just knew she had TONS of potential with just a little paint + new fabric. You can tell from the picture this chair was NASTY, and the seating even worse! I think I paid $1.50 for the fabric (at the habitat store) and used Krylon spray paint in Ivory.

I really wish I had about 5 more of the these chairs! For now, we will just use her for a desk chair or for extra living room seating :)

Good find

I did finish a few re-do's this past week but thought I'd share these antique pepsi and coca-cola crates that my husband and I found at the Raleigh flea market on Sunday. These were $4 each. A total bargain for these antiques. And I must say they are so fun to decorate with :) Good find.

Poor little shelf.

This poor antique cabinet/shelf was just too cute to pass up when I saw it at the habitat store this past summer. It came with two little doors attached to it (that were about to fall off) that I thought I would fix. All it needed was a screw, but once I started taking the doors off to fix I decided they could stay off. I liked the openness of it anyway - to display items and such ;) It also had part of the leg missing so I did have to build it back (I just used some wood filler and molded it to the way the other three legs looked). She turned out cute after all :)

(After sanding and putting wood filler on her)

And here she is After...

Blog Re-do

Just letting my blog readers know that I am currently updating my blog (thus the frequent change in background, template, etc). Although I will still be posting some things I've been working, I just wanted to give my readers a heads up. Hopefully it will look just fabulous when I'm done. This whole blog world is somewhat new to me, so if any of you have any tips, advice, or cool websites that would help it would be greatly appreciated.

Chevron Chairs

Just thought I would share these. And I really wish I had taken a before photo of them. I found them in my father's shop when he cleaned it out. They were in okay shape, but had so much dust, dirt, and who knows what else on them. Just had them recovered and I LOVE THEM! So my style, and I'm crazy about the chevron print as well :)
