coffee bag ottomans

I bought 5 used coffee bags from the internet and had my ottomans recovered with them. I saw a tv show with burlap ottomans and it got me thinking, I bet I could find some old coffee bags on line ,which i did.  {because I looked online for ready made and they were a lot of money]   Their are tons of them out there. I think they turned out great. I just love them. They were pretty cheap as well.

antique table and chairs

Me and my daughter just got done finishing this table and chairs. I absolutely love love love them. We forgot to take before pictures. [oops] The table was a brown color and the chairs were white with ugly green velvet cushions. I think they look a whole lot better now. It will be sad to let them go, because we both love them so much. But we are on to other things.

Halloween Mantle and Witch

I made this witch about 10 or so years ago. I dried tons of apples for her face. Then I glue them on to a mannequin head.  After about 6 years the apples kept on going darker, so I didn't put her out anymore.  But this year I decided to get her out again and paint her face a lovely purple color. I think it suits her don't you. I love Halloween, it's so much fun!!!!

purple painted drawers

Well i finally finished my desk and I love it. It was really a lot of fun to do. I painted the inside drawers purple and I did the outside in Annie Sloan's cream then I distressed and waxed it.
