Hutch and chair before and after

There's still a lot happening around here, projects in the works, lined up and even some that are still only floating around in my mind as yet. I wish I could say I was getting them done as fast as they are piling up, but You can only do so much before waiting for paint to dry, and I still haven't figured out a way to blog, build, paint, sew, cook and read all at the same time.

I am getting things done though, Remember this Hutch I posted about on sunday?


Or this chair from ealier in the month?

Well I am happy to say that they are finished and I LOVE how they turned out!

First the chair, I'm thinking not too shabby for my first curvy upholstery job eh?

The pillow was just a little something I whipped up the weekend before and was actually the inspiration for the striped fabric.

The hutch though, it's by far one of my favorite furniture projects! I LOVE the color, the lines, everything!

I replaced the knobs and drawer pulls with some vintage lace. And I used my Silhouette to cut out some stencils, as well as a few faux embossed embellishments.


Also on the finished list, a tote, another pillow, and several beaded scissor fobs (not pictured)


The tote is listed in my etsy shop, the pillow is a sample (inspired by this pinwheel wall art) and isn't for sale. I'll be releasing the pattern after I adjust a few things though, so be on the look out!

Well, that's it from me for now,
Later!
