In the kitchen

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.

The Golden Green Chair

Hi. Wow, as the holidays are approaching we are working hard to finish the last projects of the year at The Vintage lab.  This makeover I am going to name it The Golden Green , it is a cane back chair my husband got a few months ago. See  the transformation yourself. Click on image for description.

Before and After: Vintage Modern Cottage Chair

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.
