Tid Bits and Projects

July 21, 2009 at 11:02 am (Projects, Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It seems like I havebeen so busy around here… but where is my progress?  I have so my projects currently on my plate, and have been working on them, really!  But, none are officially completed yet.  So, I thought I would just fill you in on some of the tib bits going on around here and a few of the before shots of some current projects. 

Some awesome flowers have sprouted up in the back yard.  I forgot that I had planted them there in the spring!  I love lillies, any kind, especially orange ones!

We are also still taking care of Gillian, the salamander.  He is still in the rubber tote sitting on the table, grossing everyone out.  But, we are searching for a small tank to keep him in.  In this picture he is right next to the end of the leaf.  Those two black dots are his eyes; he is burrowed in the dirt.

The dogs made a nice mess for me to clean up this morning.  They decided that the five minutes they were left alone in the yard was just long enough to dig for moles.  Here they are trying to look all innocent and quite muddy!  Also check out Marley’s new collar.  She thinks she’s tough!

Junkin’ Projects

I have finally gotten around to a few projects with the junk we found at the junk yard!  Here’s the elephant statue all painted up and pretty with a teal pot and pink flowers:

Don’t mind our mud pile of a yard.  All this rain has made the place a pit!

We also painted a few pots for the back yard.

And, I painted the little lantern from the junk yard teal as well.  It sits on the front porch.  I also made a tiny table for a few drinks out of a plant stand and a clay pot bottom.  This project was inspired by Crafty Nest, so check out her even cooler project here: http://www.craftynest.com/2009/06/plant-stand-lazy-susan-mini-side-table/

Did you also notice the antique lantern on the floor?  That’s from my grandma.  It even has a globe made by Pyrex.  Very neat.  Any suggestions?

Chair Love Inspiration

July 8, 2009 at 3:21 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I am in the process of working on a few chair projects for the shop.  So, this week’s chair love is a compilation of some funky chair makeover inspiration! 

“Tie Chair Ala Alabama Chanin,”  by smoothepebble.  I just love these woven tie chairs, especially the ones with the dangling ends!

“Painted Chair,” by kimhas6cats.  So bright!

“Design Sponge Table Chair Redo,” by thirtyeight20.  Awesome fabric choice, and, I love love that ghost table!

http://www.flickr.com/photos/kadde/3461793398/

 “Fav Chair,” by k*8.  Again, great fabric gives this old chair a new life.

“Repurposed Chairs Make Laundry Bench,” by jgrnly.  I have an idea for a bench of chairs, but a bit fancier…

“Chair Project 1, ” by Le Silly.  Collage on a chair can be really funky and unique.

Well, for now I hope this gives everyone some inspiration… I definitely have my wheels turning!

Table And Chair Love

June 30, 2009 at 9:58 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I happened upon this table and chair set today and loved the curves and shiny metal of the set (oh, and of course the lucite of the table)! 

 

I think this would be a glamorous dining set, rug and all!

Junking!

June 29, 2009 at 7:36 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I had just the best weekend ever!  Tony and I decided to go to the flea market that isn’t far from us.  Not only is this always a fun trip for me, but on the way there Tony decided to take country back roads.  What a great idea!  We just happened upon the first antique and junk yard I have ever seen near us!  My squealing had him pulling over immediately.  And of course I didn’t have a camera! 

Let me tell you all, this place was amazing!  There were three barns filled to the brim with old wooden chairs!  I mean stacked and tossed and piled all the way to the roof tops!  It was just incredible.  There was a huge field of every type of amazing junk you could think of.  And, when we asked about a few things the lady was so sweet and her prices were perfect!  Now I have a few more projects to work on.

Everything here cost me a few dollars!  The old gas can is for we borrow Tony’s dad’s lawn mower.  The little orange lantern will be painted and set on the front porch with a candle.  Doesn’t that look just like the $80 one they have at Pier 1 (for $1!)!?  And the elephant- he is my favorite- was an old lamp base!  But, with a coat of white paint he will be a plant stand for the back yard.

These little guys were another awesome find.  They are Acro window tacks from the 40’s.  I have special plans for them and a nail head chair or bench with a bit of a number theme…

junk yard trip 1 005

And, of course we couldn’t come home without a search for some dice!  We found these at the flea market when we finally made it there. 

Overall, an awesome day and a couple of dollars got us some awesome stuff!  Next time I promise I am taking my camera!  Oh, and stay tuned, because there are already many more projects in the works!

A Sad Day and Some Things I Love

June 26, 2009 at 4:00 pm (Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

What a sad day today is.  Words cannot describe how much Michael Jackson will be missed.  He is such a huge talent and has always been a big part of my life. 

 

I really didn’t think anything was fitting to post about on such a sad day, but then decided to pay a tribute and then cheer up with some things that I am loving. 

 

I love clear furniture, I love lucite.  Need I say more?

downersI know these are tiny pictures, but I am totally wanting these cookie jars!  Hilariously funny.

I also know that this bowl is a bit sick, but also freakishly adorable.  Tony loves zombies, so I thought he’d like this!

This red retro lamp would look perfect in my kitchen!
