Shabby Chairs and Chair Rugs

13-DSCF0435I guess you could call this shopping in the barn, but I no longer have my barns. :( Somehow “shopping in the storage unit” just doesn’t have the right ring to it. :)

04-DSCF0337Yep, these three chairs were stored in the barn before we moved. The only place to move them was to a storage unit. As the weather warms up I will be going through the units (we have two) to decide what will be sold at a yard sale and what I can use (and still store) for projects. These chairs were a no-brainer. I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

09-DSCF0430I went shabby chic. Each chair was painted white before receiving a worn and distressed sanding.

08-DSCF0428I loved them…,

07-DSCF0425…but they looked kinda…

06-DSCF0424…plain.

12-DSCF0433I decided to add…

11-DSCF0432…chair rugs.

10-DSCF0431I crocheted them with fabric strips.

13-DSCF0435Now, don’t they look cozy?

Enjoy!

Mini Decorative Crowns-Crochet Pattern

This crochet pattern is brand new in my Etsy shop.

8-DSCF0306I know I have been missing in action for the last couple of weeks, but this selling a house, packing to move and buying or renting a new house is exhausting and overwhelming.

7-DSCF0305I am still trying to keep up with my paying clients, but projects have turned toward the easy to do while relaxing in the evening. Those just happen to be crochet at the moment.

6-DSCF0304I love, love these little crowns.

They are so feminine, and in a house overrun by men, I enjoy a little touch like this. Besides that, it just reinforces to my guys just who I am…the queen!
Enjoy!
