This week I thought I would feature a chair that is going in the shop!  This robins egg blue shell chair is marked “Krueger Metal Products Green Bay, Wisconsin” on the bottom.  Isn’t it just so cute?

Lawn Chair Project

It hasn’t stopped raining here for days, so please excuse the dark, dreary photos.  But, I had to share the other garage sale day find with you.  Lawn chairs!  They were a steal, and they will be fixed up with some paint and cushions, so don’t be alarmed!  Right now I think they kind of look like they belong next to some plastic flamingos in, well, not my yard.  But, they will.

Really that shade of blue is bright and fun, and has started to grow on me.  But, I think it would look out of place in our back yard.  I’m not sure what color I am thinking, however.  I know we always lean towards black.  We are blah.  But, black might bring them up to date and they could be dressed up and brightened with some bold patterned cushions.  Yes? No?  Ideas?  Always something to work on, but I love it! 🙂

Also, I wanted to let you all know that I am going to start selling off some of our projects.  I love to keep busy and remake fun things, but our house is getting full.  So, I am going to keep doing what I love, but start selling the things I make or remake.  Right now I have a coffee table in the works, so stay tuned.  I will post befores and afters of the items I plan to sell.  For now they will be listed on Craigslist, or you can contact me through the blog.  But, we are thinking that in the future I might rent a booth at one of our local antique shops.  Check back, and let me know if you are interested in anything, or are looking for something in particular! 🙂

And One More…

In my current color search I just found this image compilation of a wedding using peacock feathers.  I thought that I was the creative one!  Well, great minds think alike.  And, it proves just how gorgeous this color and feather combo would be!

Its Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

We have our tree up!  White with blue and silver ornaments.  No, Tony, it is NOT Cowboys colors (Go Bears!).  It looks so warm and Christmas-y in our house now.  I also hung the wreath on the door.

 

Our tree!  The presents even match!

The wreath. I made this with a foam wreath and 2 boas. Then pinned tiny ornaments to it. My mom's idea, I can't take credit.

Next Comes The Bathroom and Master Bedroom

Here’s the bedroom.  It’s pretty small, but turned out well.  We would like to change these cutains in time (just like the rest of the house), but they can wait until last.  I think it turned out pretty cozy.  What do you think?
This is the bed.  Matching side tables and lamps.

This is the dresser facing the bed. An old full length miror stands against the wall and an Asian keepsake box sits on the floor next to it.The dresser is vintage from when my mom was a little girl. She used the room set and then I did when I was little. The black strips are removable, and flip over to change colors. We painted one side of each black.

The hand is a vintage glove mold, the box is an old Kodak box, which we keep our momentos in. The mirror is an antique medicine cabinet, which we painted black and added a chendelier crystal for a pull.

The view from the door into the tiny bathroom. Its small but we managed to fit all of our things in there.  It feels really bright and spa-ish because of the light blue walls and white curtains.  We added a blue rug and blue curtain hooks.

The little shelf we hung across from the toilet with pretty perfume bottles on it. The only little "extra" that fits into the space!
