Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I need to get some family pictures on here. Ones my family won't kill me for posting. :)
This is a pic of me (in the middle) and my two sisters. The one on the left is my older sis (Mary Ann) and on the right is my younger sis (Liz).
I have to say I have the best sisters in the world. They are super supportive of what I do and love me, even if I do tend to neglect them from time to time. (Sorry guys, I'll text the min I get off this computer...I promise)
My sisters don't live close enough for us to get together very often. Most of the time I only see them one at a time, so when we do all get together it really is special.
My sister Liz lives much closer (within two hours..depending on traffic)
So she often spends time looking for furniture pieces for me to redo.
She happen to pick something up for me a while back. And I'm so glad she did.
This was after getting it home and starting the fix up process.
But really...with details like this, it was certainly worth it.
This really is the way it came to us. Bare bones!
Other than wood..it was bare.
BUT......... in some ways that just made it so much easier to deal with. I didn't have any yucky material to remove, and I didn't get tired of pulling out nails and staples etc.
So that's a good thing right?
On the flip side though. I had no idea how to upholster it. I didn't have a pattern to follow. So I was going to "wing" it.
I tend to go out and find the material first..and then pick paint colours from there.
Which is what I did here. I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted..and was lucky to find the perfect material pretty much right away.
And this is what I ended up with.
I'm SUPER happy with how she turned out :)
Doing a happy dance.
Those details really pop now!
I'm such a sucker for this sort of thing.
So once again.
Are you as in love as I am?
I got this done just on time..
Will share more next week, but shhhhhh this old baby is heading to a photo shoot on Sunday, lets hope the weather is great!
