It doesn't seem possible that it's already October 10! EEPS! I have seen loads of geese flying overhead on their way down south for the winter (it's one of my most favorite sights (and sounds) ever). RonChops and I have been working on getting the house ready for winter too (YAY)!
We I have loads of redecorating planned this winter! MomChops has been on the prowl for furniture and has generously given us some of the finds her and my dad have come across.
The biggest find is this super awesome solid wood kitchen table and chairs they came across years ago. This fella needs a TON of TLC. He's currently a nice bright YELLOW. I'm hoping that once I get all the paint off we can simply polyurethane him and get to eatin!
I'll be posting some photos of how he's coming along in the next few weeks.
The Scary Chair
I finished up that little chair my mom gave me last weekend and wanted to share a few quick photos from his makeover.
I had help from the Christmas Goose!

(who wanted me to let you all know that tails are totally overrated)
I call it faux fur... it's a new form of paint texture that's going to take the home decorating world by storm!
(just you wait and see!!!)
Notice how it was once a nice pale cream color!?!?
(I shudder just thinking about it)
I figure anything that is both soft AND crafty was right up my alley.
I used that batting to replace the scary foam cushion that was underneath the scary seat fabric cover.
I can't show you pictures of that... it's not close enough to halloween yet.
I now have a nice cream colored chair with a nice clean recovered seat.
I'm thinking this might be too much white so I am currently pondering painting him a light teal color to match with a teal that's in the chair cushion... gotta think on that one!
Live with Prima this week!
I'll be doing a Live with Prima show this Thursday October 13 at 8:30PM CST (you can watch it live right HERE on uStream). We'll be making a super fun little altered frame with a neat twig tree that you won't want to miss!
