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.
See one of my latest project at The Vintage Lab. It was done on time for the photo shoot I had Thursday with my photographer friend.
I have to say that I wasn’t sure about the color of the fabric. But I’m pleased with the results. I have chosen this color because it can go well with the red for the upcoming holidays: Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
I have bought this white frame at garage sale a few months ago with the purpose of making a jewelry display. It was time to start working on it. I have painted it and these are the images of the procedures. I am very pleased with the result.
On a thrifty day with my sister-in-law, she bought this Bottle.Wow! Why would she buy something like this?Knowing her as I much as I do, I have to say it wasn’t her color or style. But I didn’t know she had the idea of leaving the bottle with me. She said I am going to leave it so you do something nice. In other words, fix it!
This is the result. I have to admit it stresses me out not knowing what would I do to it. I have never done anything like painting on glass. But I after I got inspired, it wasn’t bad at all. The feedback from friends and family was great.
I have used Martha’s Steward specialty gold paint for glass and DecoArt Americana Gloss Enamel Paint 2 oz. #87 Indian Turquoise. I loved the paint effect.
