A New Project
I have finally finished a painting project! I don’t know what it is about painting, but I just don’t like it. I bought this chair at a thrift store ages ago for $5. And it took me months to get around to recovering the seat. And a few more months to start painting, and finally on Saturday afternoon during naptime I finished it up.
It used to be a hideous color of dirty honey oak. But I really liked all the twirly curvy lines on it. I covered the seat cushion with some fabric I’ve had for months, and I just realized on Saturday that it is exactly the same color as the walls in my crafty room. It’s just cotton, so it might not last long, but it was less than $1 for the scrap, so I don’t really mind. Besides, it probably won’t get a ton of wear anyway. I don’t actually sit on it very often. I usually sit on a little stool when I’m at my desk. It just seems more comfortable.
My next project is going to be pretty fun. I am still just as in love with Beauty as I have always been, (and I think I always will be) but now I am going to put her to work. I am hoping to make some notecards with these photos. And I don’t know that I would sell them, but I sure like them!
I got this idea yesterday night and unfortunately it’s pretty cloudy and overcast today (hence the awkward photo of my chair as well). So these pics aren’t exactly how I’d like them. Yet. But I love the idea, and just because they aren’t perfect doesn’t mean I’m not going to use them today. Beacuse as soon as Creamie wakes up we are going to get a pile of them printed. I have some mail to send!
Tonight we are going to a 10 year reunion of sorts. I am going to see a lot of my friends from Russia that I haven’t seen in so so long. I can’t wait to see everyone! Happy Monday!
