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.
¿Quién no ha jugado con un camión Tonka? Cuando era una niña jugaba con mi primo a los camiones. Eran indestructibles. Si te golpeabas en un pie, ay que dolor! Porque eran muy pesados. Me acuerdo que los llenabamos de tierra y luego los lavabamos con detergente para vajillas. ! Que gracioso!
Hace unos meses comenzó una construcción de nuevas casas en la ciudad que vivo. Al terminar mi dia en The Vintage Lab tenia que pasar cerca de la construccion. Y un dia vi como alinearon los camiones al terminar su dia. Fueron muchos recuerdos que vinieron a mi mente recordando los famosos tonka. Era tan impresionante que le dije a mi amiga que es fotografa. ¿Qué creen? Me sorprendió con esta fabulosa foto, me sentí muy feliz . Quiero compartir con ustedes esta imagen. tal vez les trae buenos recuerdos. Dejemen saber si tienes alguna anécdota que quieras compartir.
Esta imagen la llamare: “La vida es un trabajo en progreso”
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.
If bicycles could talk… what they would say?
Who was riding it?
What was loaded in my basket?
Where was the cyclist heading?
..Rust in Peace
I always wanted to have a room divider that I could renew using style. At every garage sale I visited always looked until I finally found one for $ 7.00. I removed the white material and wooden rods.
This is how it looked before I got the image from another website. I forgot to take a before picture of my project.
