The domino effect...

I have four locations that I sell furniture out of,
The Candle Shed, Sisters' Garden, Grasshoppers and me...
so when I move each piece to a different location,
the games begin at me, the rearranging!

It means my lil' studio du artifacts gets a face lift
or when I finish a piece, it gets moved in...

Lorie and I have this great old fainting couch
that was in need of some repairs...soooo...
down to 'the garage',
then it gets displayed at The Junk Revival,
my mini-shop,
until a new home is calculated
or it's sold...sweet!
It's maroon mohair fabric is aglow in the sunshine.

Let me tell ya about this old rocker...
someone, back in the day, recovered it in the most godawful
kelly green velvet fabric...sooooo...
what ta do, what ta do...

I painted the whole thing flat white,
even the fabric.
It's now a minty green.
It needs reupholstering and new stuffing, but for $20.00,
this curbside project could be yours,
but in the meantime, it takes up residence in the shop
and I think it fits quite nice.

Ahhhh, sweet sunshine and textures...

and another project in the works...
did I mention it's SWEET having a garage!!!

Wow..that chair has such amazing bones! You must have such an eye for seeing the possibility - and how fun - the hunt! But as much as I love to re-arrange..I can't imagine! Oh the temptation..oh the joy..oh the WORK!! End result? Beautiful!

Your displays are awesome! Course it helps immensely to have great stuff to begin with. As winter approaches and fall work continues before the inevitable snows, and my frowns, I find myself tired often from the days chores. YOU, on the other hand, continue to amaze me with your schedules! Of course, you ARE younger than me!
in fondest, Tilda
