Good morning everyone !
This was the first Friday in a while that I didn't have time to " chat " because I'm trying desperately to clean out my " stash " of furniture in order to start working on the dining room !DO NOT LOOK AT THE HANDLES - I OBVIOUSLY HAD A HARD TIME FIGURING OUT WHICH WAY WAS THE RIGHT WAY !!!
( this happens every single time I do a French Provincial something or other - I swear to you - both ways look right to me )
and the scariest part is I didn't even notice I had them going in both directions !
John says - Something's off with the handles
John says - Can you please let your readers know that I pointed that out for you please - thank you.
The desk was part of the set that I did for Evan's nursery - ( HERE )
I went in a completely different direction since there was no space for it in his room.
( I held on to it for as long as I could - hoping against hope that Ashley would store it for future use but she told me there was no way she could - ABSOLUTELY NO WAY - and so the makeover began this week and will be sold.. It's from a high end furniture line and is exactly 43 years old ( it was my nephew's - and then my niece's ) but it looks like it was made yesterday - it's in immaculate shape for it's age.
The chair - however - was in rough shape ( and of course I didn't take a before - of course not )
After unsucessfully searching for just the right fabric I ended up reupholstering the seat with drop cloth..................and painted the grain sack pattern on it - it's a perfect " fit " !
and then I decided to have a little fun with this makeover - with the hutch - to make it look like a country piece for a little girls room
Ok - on to the next piece ( s )
It's been hot here in Montreal - very hot as in 37 degrees celcius with humidity ( 98 in American ) and today they've got a " Heat Warning " in effect.................guess I'll spend some time in the pool - this may just be the last hurrah !
Have a wonderful one everybody !
