Sorry it's been a few days since you last heard from me! I have been trying my best to knock several things off of my to do list, and so far so good. But I didn't intend to leave my blog alone for this long!
I finally remade the cushion for the kooboo chair I picked up in early summer:
I thought it needed some red touches. :)
Here's what it looked like before:
I also did some tweaking to this little wall shelf- I can't remember if I showed this before, so here it is if I didn't!
I had originally painted the inside white, but it just needed a little more oomph. I added in the cute gray and white floral paper to the back of it.
I'm also bringing this second wicker chair to the Market with me:
I didn't have any before pics- I just switched out the cushion fabric on here as well. It had 3 layers of fabric hiding underneath! I like the beachy feel of this chair.
I've been searching around for some silver pieces to add into all of my stuff for the sale. I scored these awesome pewter beer steins / trophy cups! Won't they look great with the German mailbag pillows?!
I am slowly working on getting this twin bed frame finished up. ugh. What seemed like such a simple rehab has been a back burner project since January!!! Mostly due to some 'small' fixes. They are small, but a little bit on the engineering side. Fixing the finials (there weren't any) and adding in a piece of broken wood to support the box spring.
Just a hint here, I didn't have time to pull it out and stage it:
It is in the sweetest, softest pink!
On the rugged side, I found this old salvaged gate at an estate sale over the summer. The only bit of history I know about it is that it came from a ghost town in Eastern Oregon. It is massive, and has some really neat hinges and hardware on it:
I am also finishing up a clock face to go on this really cool piece. I'm not even sure what it was originally, but it was so cool, I couldn't pass it up when I found it.
I am making a clock face for this that will be French themed. Half way done right now, I hope to show you soon!
Just so you don't think I've been all work and no play, I did have some time off this weekend. (that's a good thing and a bad thing...)
We were able to go to the Ducks first home game. It was SO HOT. And I don't mean that in a Paris Hilton kinda way. Upper 90's at the game! yowza. We had a great time and it was a blowout against Nevada.
It was also my dad's birthday over the weekend, so we had fun celebrating with him.
Late Sunday, I was able to go to a local park on the Willamette River where the Field of Flags commemorated 9/11. I had taken several pictures to share with you shortly after, but time got away from me and I missed it.
This was one of my favorite photos I took there:
It was an incredible experience, and a thoughtful way to remember such a significant event in our nation's history.
I hope your weekend and your week have been wonderful!
I don't know how much I will be posting this week, but I will take pictures of the Deepwood Vintage Market this weekend to share with you!
Make sure you come say hi if you plan to go! :)
