Lately I seem to be finding my creative mojo. I've said it before, I work well under pressure and I am definitely feeling the pressure. Last year was the first year we sold at Farm Chicks. We were so excited, had no idea what to expect saleswise (is that even a word?), and we were thrilled with what a great show it turned out to be for us. In fact, it was the best show we had ever done. Now we are hoping that this year will be an even better show for us, so I am really pulling out all the stops and am planning on taking as much great stuff as I possibly can. I really feel much more organized than last year so that does take a little of the pressure off. If you are debating about whether to come to the show this year, let me reassure you, it will be bigger and better than ever. The quality of vendors selling there is top notch and there will be even more vendors than last year, so that means more great stuff. In other words, in my humble opinion, it is most definitely worth the trip. But, I may be a little biased. ha ha
Okay, enough rambling. Here is another project I worked on last weekend. I bought this dresser from my friend who was moving and didn't need it any more. I totally forgot to take a before picture (I seem to be doing that a lot lately) so you will just have to imagine, it was brown and not too cute.
It's hard to tell in the picture, but the paint color is a minty green. I took a knob from an old desk that I sold a long time ago, to get the color matched and I think they did a pretty good job. It only took three tries to get it right. Anyway, I used some creamy oops paint for the base coat and did some distressing so it would show through. Tell me what you think.
I love the bow swag even if it isn't all there.
On another note, there were tons of garage sales last weekend and only went to a few on Friday. I found this chair at my neighbor's sale.
Whoever had it crudely slipcovered it in this floral fabric. The fabric was really pretty, but I thought I would just take it off and make another more fitted slipcover. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the pink fabric underneath was in excellent shape. This one will be going over to Monticello with me today.
Well, that's it for me today. We have had lovely, furniture painting weather for several days now, but it looks like rain is in the forecast again. Time to work on those sewing projects I keep procrastinating. Have a great week! I'll be back soon with some more show and tell.
