Happy Friday everyone!
I finally ventured back out to my garage this week. I can make up various reasons for my slow return and hesitation to dive back into work but one of the biggest reasons has been a lack of inspiration.
Or maybe avoidance?
I have had several pieces in my garage that have been sitting for quite some time and I was avoiding them. Some need extensive sanding and patching, some need woodwork repair and then there is the dreaded upholstery projects.
I admit, I have been putting off upholstery for several years now. Although, I guess I am a few steps ahead of some people, as I have completed dining room chairs, benches etc. It's the "BIG" upholstered chair projects that I've been working the courage up to tackle.
Call me silly or weird, but I really do believe in the "everything happens for a reason" quote. Apparently, more than I even know, cause one of my neighbors says she saw a sign and almost bought it for me, cause I always refer to it!
I've been popping into my local thrift spots over the last month or two and haven't seen much worth taking home. I believe this is the universe speaking to me. lol.
And then I saw this quote yesterday while wasting more of my life away on Pinterest.
This folks, means this to me.
Complete the ---- you have in your garage.
And do the best with what you have."
That is how the universe speaks to me. lol.
And now you all think I'm weird.
And on another note, here's one of those odds and ends that I was referring to. All freshened up, and looking for someone to love it all up again!
I love the color of this blue. It's often hard to photograph the true color of some pieces, but I think this picture captures it.
I LOVE anything tufted. The upholstery and cane are in great condition and this chair is solid wood, & sturdy.
Painted crisp white with distressing.
Where do you picture this chair? Living room, bedroom, front entry, bathroom?
And, I successfully unupholstered my first "BIG" chair project earlier this week, and am hoping the reupholster will also be a success and I can share it with you!
Wish me luck!
