Antique Flour Bin & SYS blog party

Welcome y'all to the 72nd Share Your Style party. Tickled you are here to share your inspiration. Mine, for this week,  is a charming antique flour or grain bin I bought at auction.  I loved the color of this old pine piece, with a beautiful mellow patina.  The top would actually be used as a dough or cutting board.  How fun would this be in today's kitchen?  Great place to store pet food, use as a snack bin or catch all.  Charming as a end or side table too.  This piece goes in my booth.....The Vintage Nest at the Lazy Daisy Shop, Midlothian, VA.

Company's Coming & My New Favorite Tool

There's nothing like having company coming that pushes you to get things done you have been putting off.  I have been a busy little bee this week working through a list a mile long, both inside and out.  One of those things was recovering the deck patio chair seats and cushion.  I bought the fabric  several months ago and it has been sitting on the dining room table ever since .  I finally got the job done yesterday and in no time at all with the help of a handy little tool I discovered.  If you are like me, I would pull and tug on old staples with a screwdriver and pliers trying to remove the old coverings.  I also do a lot of make-overs on furniture and this piece is a real time saver.  It's an upholstery staple remover.  Who knew there was such a thing and why I am only just discovering this tool?  It worked beautifully for me every time, was comfortable to hold, easy on my wrist and inexpensive.  I ordered mine on line.





This is the fabric I chose.  A simple gray and white screen print that matches the color of the house and faux painted rug on the deck.  A couple of years ago, when I last re-did the cushions, I chose a bright, happy print of fish.  This time I went much more subtle.  




I am very happy with the way they turned out and just love this new tool.  And I now have #7 checked off the list!    xoxo  Looking forward to having you visit and I love comments.  Don't forget the Share Your Style blog party on Thursday.

French Mannequin & SYS Party

Welcome to the 71st Share Your Style party.  Excited for all of you to be here and to see all your fabulous inspiration.  My project for inspiration this week was a make-over on a vintage mannequin.  She was on a sliding up and down stand, which I loved, so she could be a table top or standing piece. Problem was, she had been out in the elements for quite some time and needed a good cleaning.  When I put bleach on her to remove some black mold her cloth covering disintegrated ....oops....but to my delighted surprise, underneath was a papier mache form which I loved!  So, I cleaned and lightly sanded that, leaving a bit of the old white tape.  I covered her bodice in a vintage cream colored lace tablecloth.  To her lower torso I applied an antique French letter with Mod Podge and also put a wash of Mod Podge over the entire papier mache torso.  Adding a vintage 1940's satin belt from an old dressing  gown I had and a paper flower with a center piece of old jewelry completed the look.   I adore the way she turned out.  I love happy accidents.  She will go into my booth soon.
