I am touched more than I can say by the kindness shown toward me and my kids. I am truly grateful for each of you!
Tonight I was working on a little project with one of the items that was in that pile of "junk" in my van, and I just wanted to give you a tiny peek at what's going on over here.
One of the things I picked up was an old canvas beach chair. It is quite weathered and the wooden seat is in the garage waiting to be used for a different project. The canvas wasn't "cool old", it was just "ugly old", so I covered it with a couple of coats of white paint.
Then I decoupaged a vintage beach print, that I've had for many years, onto the canvas.
I added a couple of distressed white hooks. Now the vintage beach chair will become a vintage beach-inspired towel rack.
These photos aren't so great (taken in my poorly lit living room at night) It still needs a couple of tweaks, and some hangers on the back, but I'll be finished with it tomorrow.
Another thing I picked up was two old, large (approx. 24" x 30") heavy cotton bags from a linen supply company. The day I picked the items up it had recently snowed and everything was very wet.
The bags had some metal items on top of them, and have some rust stains. I washed them twice (with bleach!).
What is it about a piece of heavy soft cotton with a frayed edge? Some girls like diamonds, I like tattered cotton. I know, I'm a silly girl : )
I'm going to try and see if I can use the good parts to cover the back of my little chair. It's been waiting to be finished up for months! I have a small feather pillow that I'm going to try and cover with this fabric also, to go with the chair. Then I'll have to let it go!
That's it for tonight. No "biggies", just a peak at what's happening with some of my junk finds.
Thank you again for holding me up with your dear prayers and words of encouragement!
