My garage is starting to look slightly frightening! I am sure the neighbours think we are either turning into hoarders or about to open a furniture shop:)
So, it might be time to let a few things go. (that noise you hear? it’s my hubby celebrating)
It turns out I may have a slight addiction to chairs…I currently have NINE, yep, 9 piled up in the garage. Let’s not talk about the 3 sitting inside the house. All are project chairs that I had/have fabulous plans for. But…not nearly enough time.
This bad boy I was talked into buying at a garage sale. Turns out, I have no idea how to make a slipcover!I think it has very cool, super low sleek lines. How awesome would it be with a retro print fabric!
Ok, ignore the obviously bad photo, I was too lazy to drag everything outside into the snowstorm we are currently having (and let’s face it, the neighbours already think I’m crazy!) so I took pics in the garage.
I think this chair is fantastic, all those sweet curvy lines are just begging for a shabby chic redo. It even had the original caning (badly damaged) under a leather cover. I can totally imagine this chair done up in the pretty new Antoinette color by Annie Sloan – divine in a little girls room!Too bad someone used it as a stepladder while they painted.
And now for a little mystery. I have this cute vintage magazine table,Kind of in rough shape, but great lines and other than the two end pieces it is solid wood. I was thinking about painting it similar to the one I did for myself (here) or trying something using some cool vintage-y paper on the top and shelf. So I am in the garage, taking some pictures when I spy this…A flash of red, and I thought there was something stuck down inside, reach in – nothing. And it’s completely smooth, and other than when the flash caught it at the right angle I have never ever noticed it before! Its totally a manufacturer’s label right? I tried to get a closer shot, and realized it has been applied upside down. So here is as close a view as I can get, and flipped the picture around – Nuts! I still can’t make it out. I did try googling a bunch of times, and didn’t have any luck that way either. I would LOVE to know more about this. Hmmm, this one I have a harder time parting with, but they are all going up on my local kijiji. Maybe someone will have more time than I do and be able to rescue them!
