Okay...so I created this blog several months ago to share some of the furniture that I have been working on, and hopefully get some feedback/advice from YOU people. I've been putting off and putting off my first post so, here I am finally. :) I'm spending my Halloween on the couch watching the Texas Rangers and making my first "Top Drawer" blog post. I'm not a Hallo-weiner anyway! (I didn't even buy candy to pass out. Is that bad?)
So, I put several pieces of furniture in a consignment sale called My Sister's House this month. I sold quite a bit of it, and was super stoked! I don't have any before-and-after pics this time unfortunately. I'm trying to get better at remembering to take the "befores".
So here it is....a few of the pieces I have finished in the past couple of months.
I tried my hand...with the help of my wonderful mother....at reupholstering and decorative pillow making:
Most of these pieces started out HIDEOUS things I found at different garage sales. It's amazing what some fabric and paint will do for you. I am still learning a lot about reupholstering, but I really like it. Most of the fabric used for these pieces were bought at a fabric factory on Harry Hines, in Dallas. I would definitely recommend buying there if you can, because it is significantly cheaper and they have a great selection.
Painted pieces TO COME! Thanks for looking!
