Check Out Our Shop

Thursday, October 4, 2012

It had me at a glance...

You know sometimes a purchase is well planned, thought out, saved for..
and then occasionally it hits you like a ton of bricks, and you think- Oh my , that's going home with me !

Well this was one of the unplanned, spur of the moment, follow your heart purchases. I was perusing one of the little antique shops in a nearby town, on the way back to the office and had not been in the store for oh- probably more than two minutes when I spied this.. or as my Grandson says- I spied with my little eyes :)

I know - it needs to feel the love. 
It needs some tender care. BUT, what details !! I was immediately drawn to the colors in the chair- I just knew it would feel at home in my living area off the kitchen.

It will require some planning on my part to get the things I need-  1. leather cleaner/ repair... 2. A very fine sandpaper... 3. A piece of wood so My Darling can make a new seat where the other one simply gave out...4. A wonderful old Vintage fabric to save and repurpose.
Then it will be good as new- OR BETTER. Don't you think ?

Maybe a decorative initial here ? 

The colors match my decor perfect ! 

Check out those Nail head- should be fun...

Stick around- I’m planning, preparing and otherwise going to finish this soon- we are hosting Thanksgiving here this year.  That should keep me focused. Well.. hopefully.

If you have any great suggestions for this project- let us hear from 
you. I am open to ideas - I want it to feel the love & be enjoyed by all.

Till next time-  Enjoy the lovely FALL.  We are.
