Refresh a boudior lamp....

Ok, I finally did it....I forgot to take the "before" picture! So sorry!
It was just a plain jane lamp with a bronze color metal base. I spray painted
the base white, bought one of those "adhesive" lampshades and decorated it!
Very easy and "WOW" what a difference! I found the floral corsage that is on the
front on Ebay.

A little "cutie" to brighten your day....

Redoing Dining Room Chairs in Funky French Chic Style

Well, I finally finished my diningroom chairs!


I almost forgot to take a "before" picture! I was already taking the backs off of the chairs!
I have 2 of these chairs...

And, a set of 4 of these....
I did add a small rose applique to them before painting.


I "ironed on" a couple of vintage graphics that I found on Etsy.

The chairs were so subdued....I had to go "Funky" on the back! I couldnt seem to decide on a fabric. This was a cut velvet curtain which was just lovely! I cut it up and used it for chair fabric.

I just loved this fabric....Where did I find it, you ask? Oh la la, Hobby Lobby!
They know me by name! he he

Thank you for stopping by!
