A work in progress


Well...Here is my antique--- "vintage" desk and chair "before" I painted them black. I also recovered the seat cushion with this linen jacket I purchased from a thrift shop almost 2 years ago. I bought it soley with the intention of using it for the fabric...Such a funky design with bright colors...I knew I would use it for something eventually. I thought I would have ended up using it to make a bag or a couple of coin purses but I think a seat cushion is even better.


So, I only have these "before" pictures to share right now. I'm thinking everything will be complete in a couple of days or so. I have some last minute details like hanging pictures and a vintage chandelier I scored this weekend...Fabulous!!! I'll be posting photos of my new little "studio" soon!

Hope you're all having a beautiful weekend! :)

The fabric on that jacket is great. It is the perfect way to spice up a room. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
