Yea!! I completed the curtains, all five of them. They are hung, and wow! I'm always amazed at how curtains impact a room by giving it a more finished look.
I think burlap gives a natural "earthy" feel, and to add color, I used some of my favorite fabrics I had on hand, sewed them together forming a band which I added along the bottom. I left the selvage frayed edge of the burlap raw along the bottom edge. Love it!
I found this chair at Goodwill for $20.00. I had vision for it the minute I saw it.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out! And it's so comfortable too! Originally, I wanted to create a whimsical look by piecing different colorful fabrics together kinda like a quilt, but, in the end, decided to go with the turquoise. I made the pillow to give it a pop of color. This was one of the seven pieces of furniture I refinished for my new studio.
This is the little stool I sit on at my work table. Now it has a fresh new seat! I didn't get a before picture of this one, but let me tell you, it wasn't pretty...dingy with paint stains all over it. Now it matches the other chair I upholstered.
I acquired this cute little stool over 20 years ago from the landlord of the apartment my hubby and I rented just after we were married. He said if I didn't want it to throw it in the trash. Of course, I kept it! It's been painted twice and it's now on it's third seat. I love it!
NOW...for the BIG Question about my armoire. Well, after all the wonderful comments, we've dicided to keep it like it is, at least for now. In the future, I might paint the chalkboard paint a different color. I'm actually very happy with it the way it is! When I read the comments to my hubby, this is what he said,....
"I throw in the towel"
It's been fun setting up my new studio with him, but I do wonder about his taste, like where is it?...or actually, he wonders about mine :) No, he really does have good taste, he just doesn't get Vintage Chic!
Next, look for a post about my new FINISHED Stuido! Whew! After so much hard work, it's about time!
