make me pretty – blue chair take two

January 3, 2011

I know this blog is going to get pretty boring if I keep repeating myself but I had to do this one piece over. You might remember this vintage stool I re-did a few months back. I really loved the way it turned out and when I found this cute chair at the thrift store I decided to do it the same way. I know this makes for a boring blog post but I think the chair turned out super cute. I promise not to make this a habit! Look for something brand new from me next week!

And finally a picture of all of my boys and no one is blury or has their eyes closed!


bye bye old friend

It’s been almost a year now since I started this blog and decided to try and take my furniture re-inventing obsession and turn it into a bigger part of my life. To share my adventures with the world and try to make a little money too! Well, my first chair re-do has just sold and it is making me feel a little nostalgic. I dragged this chair to countless craft shows and had grown kind of attached. The chair my mother couldn’t believe I painted blue! What was I thinking? Well it turns out there is someone else out theres who shares my taste.

Actually more than one. The lovely ladies from Covet actually sold my old friend for me. Covet is the first store to feature my work and I am in really good company. They feature local and national artists and these ladies have good taste! If you find yourself in Northern VA you need to go shopping! Their store is in Arlington, at 5140b wilson blvd. Check out the gorgeous pictures below.
