am 60 today.Happy Birthday to me.
Hello and welcome to another
SECOND TIME AROUND hosted
by our sweet friend Ms Diane @
Today,I have done a no-no. I have
looked on Rate My Space,in my
pictures files. I guess I didn't take
a picture of this one first.But...it was
clean,it was just the typical gold
yucky boring color.Nothing wrong
with gold. But where I was putting
it.Nope! So just for today if you will,
just imagine this gold with no crystals,
or beubeches, or cord cover,just gold.
okay? I paid $15.00 for this. I had the
crystals from another chandy. I bought
the beubeches from ebay.I made the
cord cover with .50 worth of fabric.I
cannot remember what the beubeches
cost,but probably $10.00 or so. This
wasn't quite the deal as the red one,
Because I got this one at my "favorite"
thrift store and it is a little pricey,but
worth it.So this little beauty set me
back around $25.00 bucks.I think
well done, myself.This is in a bedroom
so it's about as flashy as it needs to be.
Don't you think?
And here we are now with my chair
make-overs.There was nothing wrong
with the chairs,just stained and the stain
on the wood needed to be touched up.So
I did.I touched up the stain.Pooey,did that
Then I recovered the chairs.I can do it,if it's
with a stapler or a needle.I just cannot for the
life of me do what the pros do.YIKES!!!!
Then of course I trimmed out my work.The
material came from Wallyworld,so it wasn't
much.I got bolt of this trim for $3.00 at my
favorite thrift store.And you'd be surprised
what all I have used it for.Everything,but
tying up my hubby,ha....
By the way,I happened to make the little
pillows too.I had saved my mother-in law
dress from my son's wedding for 13 yrs .The
moths had gotten to it.I said well,at least this
way,we can still enjoy it.I made several little
pillows.Now hows THAT for a SECOND TIME
AROUND TOO?I got a freebie there.haha.
This shows the fabric up close.Yes
my living room is pink.But the secondary
color is this soft brown.And it's almost like velvet.really soft and plush,yet strong.
And this shows my trim.Need some?I own a bolt of it.
This is what they looked like before.See the stains?
My other house used to be blue-everything blue.
We had changed out over half before we decided to
get a bigger house.Isn't that the way everybody does it?
The old and the new.
