Hi all,
for those who do not know, we have bought a home and are moving this weekend.  After 8 years of renting, it feels good to finally be homeowners again.  I will be posting pictures as soon as I unpack my camera ;).  We are in the full swing of the move and this weekend will be a very busy one.

New Old Chair

Well, I told you that I did a second upholstery project and I wanted to share that with you today.
 I have had this little chair for a couple of years and I had intended on reupholstering this as soon as I got it.  I love the style of it and could imagine it painted.  This is the only picture that I could find of it.  Sorry for the bad picture.

For the Love of Architectural Salvage

I love love love architectural salvage!  You all know that I am all about re-purposing and upcycling.  I mean how can you not love reusing something that was cool to begin with for something even more cooler... (sorry for improper English)

Pillows.... Pillows.....Pillows

Well it has been said that practice makes perfect.... well, I haven't perfected my pillow making ability but I'm definitely getting better at it. Here is what I have made over the summer.

My first upholstery project

I was so intimidated to try to upholster anything other than a chair bottom, you know the kind where you unscrew the seat, cover it with new material, staple it down and screw the seat back down.  I have done that several times.  This on the other hand was going to need a little more effort.
I had gotten this from my sister in laws home as we were cleaning it out after she passed away. I believe that this was my mother in laws at one time. I thought that this piece would be the perfect thing to use as a first time upholstery project, I mean, I obviously couldn't hurt it....
