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....

A place you must go see!

Hey there,

I have been working on several things since my last post and well you know, doing life.  I am working on several posts but first I must tell you about a new business in OKC.  This place is total awesomeness!
Think Restoration Hardware meets Fixer Upper.  Holy smokes it is now my favorite place to "visit".  I say visit, because I certainly can't afford to buy most of the stuff that they sell but still..... I can get ideas and go make it my self!  (ha) Anyway, I snapped several pictures for you to drool over and if you are ever in OKC in the downtown area, I highly recommend that you check them out.  They are called Urban Farmhouse Designs. I am not getting any kick backs from this post .... hint hint but I wanted to share it with you.  If you do ever go visit, tell them Upcycle Addict sent you.   Enough chatting, lets roll the pictures....
This was the cutest ice chest.
They had not finished this yet, but I loved the look of it so I snapped a picture. As you walk in the main entrance, the workshop is on the right. So you can see the guys actually building the stuff before you ever walk through the glass sliding barn doors. Yes, glass sliding barn doors. ( I forgot to take a picture of it. )

I loved this huge lantern, I could not even think about buying it but oh my word did I want it!

I love the book shelf/ rolling cart. I believe that I will build one after we move next year. I am thinking that my white iron stone collection would look fantastic on it. Anyway, there you have it. My dream store all under one roof. For those living in Oklahoma be sure and go see this place, it is amazing.

 I hope to have another post soon. (fingers crossed) Thanks for reading along and checking in with this little blog of mine,
