Before I get to today's post.....
I just want to complain about how long it takes to sew rings on draperies!!!!
Lot's of folks just use the drapery hooks,
but not me....
I am sewing my niece Miriam's living room draperies, and I want only the best for her.
I just think they look better when the rings are sewn on.
I'm probably wrong.
Well, enough moaning and kvetshing....
On to today's gem!!!!!
We have been looking at my buddy, Kris's bedroom.
Next up is her night table.
Up to now, the furniture she's been using for her bedroom has been an old, heavy Scottish beauty.
But, she wanted to go with a lighter feel.
So this behemoth was moved out to the hall.
Now she's complaining about it in the hall.
Next thing I know, it will end up going to auction.
She wanted a less massive feel in her newly designed bedroom.
At the last auction we previewed, I noticed a really nice little table.
The auction was on a day that I had to take my folks to the doctor, so Kris had to go by herself.
We kept in close contact through email on our ipads.
I was able to watch the auction on line.
The auctioneer was going at a snail's pace, and poor Kris was stuck there all alone, bored out of her mind.
BUT, I kept on writing to her, that she better not leave the auction
without that damn table!!!!!
I just love its shape.
All it needs is a good waxing, and it will be a little star.
Kris wants a chair in her bedroom.
She claims she'll use it to read.....
We all know what chairs are used for in bedroom....
and it ain't reading!!!!!
Actually, that's not fair,
she does admit that it could be used for clothes throwing.
First we found this chair.....
I love it!!!
It's really girly!!!
It has a bow!!!!
When I re-invent it, it will not be tufted.
And it will be painted....
When we were antiquing a few weeks ago.....
We were in a store that had a nice large bathroom.
In the bathroom was a wonderful 1930's chair.
I am screaming from the bathroom.....
Come look at this chair!!!!!
I didn't have any place in mind for it.
But I love chairs like this.
We got it for 20 bucks.
Kris liked it better than the other chair, 'cuz it's not so "frou frou".
(Those are her words, not mine.)
So, this chair is going in her bedroom, and the other one is going in the guest room.
I keep heaping upholstery projects on my weary old bones.
I hope my body holds out till my projects are done.
We also found a chest of drawers at auction....
I'll show you what I did to it in my next post!!!
Don't you love cliff hangers?????
On that note,
