|Painting the wicker chairs charcoal gray helped coordinate the chairs, swing, and pew with the bricks. We bought the side table at a "Big Box" store. Amy replaced the top with a vintage wooden checkerboard that she sprayed with poly.|
|The colors in the crate look so much richer against the gray table.|
I made the pillow tops from old vintage tablecloths. I found just the right one with red, gray and turquoise on etsy. I had a great shopping experience with: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BellaroseSignature.
My husband always says to tackle the worst project first. I will tackle the worst projects later. The sewing projects that I am dreading are: 1. My Dysfunctional Cat 2. Cantankerous Corners. These are projects that need lots of help!
I just bought a great book, The Art of Manipulating Fabric by Colette Wolff. I can't wait to play with fabric and her techniques. Today was my first day of summer vacation. I was up at 6:00 A.M. because I was so excited! There is so much inspiration everywhere!
