This is what my dining room table has become off and on this week, a cutting table for making pillows and laying out fabric for curtains to be sewn.While I love working with fabrics and sewing, I can only do one thing for so many days, maybe (I have attention deficit) LOL! And then I have to change it up, so I worked on a 12 x 12 canvas that was calling to me in my head during that super creative time, between sleep and awake...
I purchased this tiny crystal chandelier, years ago from a thrift store for a few dollars, and have had it stashed away in a box. I thought it would make a great little addition to the space. The finish of this little lamp is covered in 24 carat gold, which I'm not a huge fan of gold anyway, and I thought maybe I could paint it, but my husband said "you can't paint over that, it's gold!" So we came up with this idea of covering it with my french inspired paper tape and secured it with glue, and I'm just thrilled with how it turned out!!!
I got a few more pillows made for the benches... seems like I have been making pillows for days and days......It has been fun to go through my fabric stash to come up with these combinations.
Here are a few more pillows I made on the other side, I had these needle point rug samples that my friend gave me years ago, that I turned into pillows and added some vintage lace to the edges.
Some sparkle over the dining room table... I haven't hung the canvas yet, I'm waiting until I get a grouping that I like before I mount it permanently.
I had to put one of my most cherished possession's in here, a floral oil painting from the the 1800's that I mounted with command strips over this ugly cupboard, so that it won't cause any damage and stay on securely when were on the move...
Pulls and shelf liner for the drawers to be installed still. I had these canisters that didn't sell in my shop, so guess where there new home is going to be? I think they will be perfect in here. Steve can't wait until I fill up the one with cookies for midnight munchies under the stars...
Hope you enjoyed the tour, still lots to do!!! I cant wait to show you what comes next!!!
Wishing you all a Fabulous Day today... and don't forget to leave me a comment in the box, I just LOVE hearing from you all!!!
