Memory Boards Magnifique!

Nov6th2015

Hello all! I had recently compiled a small collection of antique frames and thought it was time to get creative with some pretty memory boards, so I spent the last two weeks putting together some different looks! I’m quite pleased with the colour palette, they are so beautiful! I could just see these in a home office, or on the kitchen wall or maybe a mom or daughter’s personal space filled up with contacts, cards, photos and memories…it’s also time to start thinking of christmas gifts and I’m positive any girl would LOVE to receive one of these. I’ve made several custom orders as well so keep that in mind, we can shop for that perfect coordinating fabric for your home and I can work within a set budget. I had so much fun doing these and am always on the lookout for more frames to work with. You can find these and other inspirations here “Memory Boards.”

Dining Chair Redeux

Oct29th2015

I found these dining chairs in the summer and have been working on them when I have the time out at the acreage. The nice thing is having the space to work on these projects without having to clean and up and put away every day, I can just leave as is until I next get to them without infringing on any space while we make a mess throughout the house. So I finally got them all finished up after a few months only to have fallen in love with them and trying to think of ways to use them in my home….maybe the craft room? However, with that beautiful white fabric, may be susceptible to dusty hands!  I decided to keep for now and see how the house comes together and if there’s a place for them. If not, they will go up onto the website or be included in a Spring sale. These were tough…lots ‘n lots of staples to pull, gluing and tightening, painting a few layers of cream with antique glazing, then the task of upholstering by myself in a nice heavy linen/cotton french fabric. It was well worth the effort as they’ve come out beautifully.

Swooning….

Jun30th2015

K…I’m excited, but a tad bit sad to have finished these french chairs. I love, love, love them but I have no use or space or purpose for them (if I were to keep). Therefore I put them up “In the Store” so someone else can enjoy. The trouble is there is three of them! But then I was thinking that it isn’t so bad at all. Imagine a little tea table with yourself and two of your best gal pals sitting around sipping a glass of wine or lemonade. How often do you really have four people sitting around a table? So, I would say a set of three is simply perfect! Honestly…I do have a fourth chair that is almost exactly the same but has no floral crown on the backrest. I’m going to jazz it up after I repair it (the seat is ripped) just so you know a fourth lonely little chair is also waiting to be adopted!

This is what they looked like “before”

Here’s that fourth chair that wants to march to it’s own band…watch to see it’s transformation!
