Tiny Mahogany Chairs

August 12, 2011

I was so pleased to work on these chairs.  There was so much energy that had been put in these chairs when they were originally made and I felt energized by them.  I refinished the wood, gave it a few coats of tung oil and then covered the pads with wool from a re-purposed poncho.


VA and Elliott’s Chairs

September 17, 2011

My friends are packing up their home and packing it all into a pod ready to ship to wherever they end up.  I was very excited to be asked to re-do a couple of simple armchairs.  We chose a grey velvet for the front of the chair and for the trim.  The back has a cool velvet zigzag pattern.

I did not know what to do with this poof when I first saw it but things fell into place and it turned out to be a really interesting piece.  It’s at Paloma Botanical Beauty Parlor.

So I made these spectacular hats for a while.  I really love them and while not every adult can rock them, most little kids can!  They are all reversible and made with thrift store fabrics, mostly “ethnic” prints.  Feel free to contact me if you would like to purchase one!

Lots o leather!

One of the best things about the network of people I know are the endless calls I get asking if I want fabric and furniture.  Recently a friend gave me SO MUCH LEATHER that they had dumpstered a few years back from a boot shop.  I don’t think I took a before picture, but this rocking chair used to have yellow plastic webbing.

I didn’t make this baby

But I did make the pad he’s laying on.  Patchwork border and woven tubes of striped fabric.

Cute little chair

I am excited to move back to Virginia where the cool old furniture flows like wine, or whatever.  I found this little gem on the curb and it was a quick job for my mom.  Doesn’t it look like 90s Versace?

Sweet Rocker

August 12, 2011

I got this rocker/glider that had seen better days and gave it new life!  I refinished the exposed wood, stained it with tung oil and then covered it in a pretty green velvet and a grey wool blanket with some colorful detail.  It’s got a real chill glide, too.
