As you can see I love these vintage cane chairs quite a bit.LOL. I was so happy to found the settee/bench. Let me share the before images.
The old velvet fabric was removed and I gave them a good clean. I want to keep the classy style and I used 3 yards (60″ wide) of a beautiful brocade fabric. After surfing the in I came to a conclusion that Hollywood Regency colors was definitely the style I was aiming for. I have used semi gloss spray paint from Rustleoum the primer and paint kind.
Above: Here is the inspiration.
Below: This is how my settee looks like so far. The chair is still drying but I couldnt resist posting my first picture.
I am planning to make some small decorative pillows. Next week you will see the cane chair after is done.

I have always wanted a mirrored furniture. One day I saw this beautiful desk/vanity at a store. I fell in love, it is was so beautiful. But no way I want it to spend high tag price. No this time.
At agarage sale i got this vanity. It was sturdy and all it needed was love. I got plenty of that. It was sanded it, painted it and added craft mirrors.
and look at it now. I am in love.
Pasteles de guineo. In the kitchen, the creators of the vintage lab also we prepare for the holidays. It is are custom to prepare those traditional Christmas meals. Here are the pictures I took of my mother teaching me step by step; how to make the “pasteles”. They are very tasty and there is no one to compare with mom’s recipe. I hope one day to prepare some on my own. It is a long process but worth it. We wish you Happy Holidays. And to my mom thank you very much for your love and your patience. I love you mommy.
