Since the Halloween pics were a collective project (meaning, I did not really get one good picture with my camera and I had to wait for Melissa to edit her's) it has taken me longer than expected to get these posted!
First...my Little Bo Peep:
And...her little lost sheep:
No worries...she found her:
And of course we can't forget their good friend, GI Thomas:
I am a little biased, but I think they are all pretty dang cute!
Since I was behind in posting Halloween pictures, I obviously did not get anything else that I promised posted either...leaving me lots to more to share!
Now, I am not going to lie...I think that I got a little over excited because it was solid wood...which as we all know is sometimes rare. Anyhoo, we were not exactly sure what it was...a very small/short table or a footstool, but I am pretty sure it was the latter. It had no cushion so I am sure you can understand our confusion.
It first got painted black...you can never lose with black, right? I also purchased some fabric to make a cushion for it...I don't know what I was thinking...it was definitely "fugly" fabric, therefore, I am not even going to show you! So there it sat in my garage with a few other unfinished projects!
My hubby was gone hunting the week before last and I was bound and determined to finish those odd projects so he would quit complaining about them taking up his precious space in the garage! And I have to admit...I could not justify getting more goodies to refinish if I did not finish the ones that I already had.
Still with me?
Now enters the Annie Sloan Paris Grey paint that I already had on had and this Chevron piece of fabric that I purchased from Fabric.com:
Put them together and you get this:
A little fun and funky, don't cha think?!
It took me longer to put those buttons on than the time it took to do the entire rest of the project. I have since "pinned" a tutorial from Pinterest that will make this project much simpler/faster next time. In my own defense, I have done tufting many times before, but I already had this piece of foam rubber on hand and it was extra thick...made pulling those buttons through a
In case you are wondering...the colors "just happen" to match Kelli's living room perfectly, so yes, it did end up at her house!
Since I freed up all that space in the garage (heehee), I could justify buying this bedroom set from an estate sale that I also went to while the hubby was out of town! It was a smokin' deal that I could not pass up...Melissa asked me if Dad was going to divorce me over it...I said it was worth the risk!!
Here are all the pieces that I got:
Headboard/Footboard (which was a full that I have already sold, as is):
The chest of drawers (sorry about the grainy pictures):
And one nightstand
All solid wood (white ash, which I honestly know nothing about)! I was positively giddy...especially when I saw the price tag! $285 for all of it! Not bad, huh?! I have already sold the bed because I already have queens for both of my guestrooms and had no other use for it. I sold it for $80, so now I am only into it for about $200. I am seriously thinking of painting it and keeping it for my master bedroom. What do you think...keep it or sell it and double my money?!
That was quite a bit to share in one day, right?! Be sure to check back...I have another fun decor project from Kelli's house and a few other things up my sleeve.
