The flash flooding in Cedar Rapids area(Palo), has subsided and rain has moved East, so now we'll have sun and hopefully things will dry out, mainly just water in basements, as the creek down the street from us leaves it's banks, but sump-pumps are running...as you recall, there were MAJOR floods last year in that area, so people are weary...I'll give an update after work on Saturday.
I have always loved the look of designer Carol Hicks Bolton and thought this chest would be the perfect toy to play with. She used vintage fabrics to cover furniture tops and the look really had appeal to me and the top wasn't in the best of shape, so I tacked on a piece of vintage velvet curtain to give it a funky look...sure, not for everyone, but it looks FAB in my lil' shack!
...next, this lil' parlor table will receive it's feed sack topping tacked on and stenciling of French lettering to give it that newly imported style so popular now...
...then this cute lil chair will receive it's feed sack cushion to match it's topper and the usual French lettering...and new projects emerge...and off to the shop...I love my job...right!!!
