Hard Work Does Pay Off....

Time seems to be going by so fast.... Day in and day out, so many things to do, so many places to go...
I need more time! Thank goodness for summer days.  I feel like I can get more things done. I have been working really hard this past week, to get some upholstry, and sewing done. I have used my upholstry scissors so much this week, I got a huge blister on my thumb. Thats okay, because all my hard work pays off when I see my finished product. Like this bench, for instance. It was a dark oak, and you couldn't see the carvings very well, but now that it has a Swedish gray paint, and new white upholstry it's divine....




I have also been working on this bench, which is so lovely! I love the curved sleigh arms, quite stunning. A masterpiece, with great carved legs.



Transforming all these beautiful pieces, makes me think twice about redecorating the master bedroom. But as many of you all know, I have been selling some of my favorite pieces to redecorate. I have some of the accessories, but no furniture yet. So we will see what I will evolve in to.
HAPPY WHITE WEDNESDAY!

So beautiful! You did an amazing job on both pieces. After seeing your pictures I look at stained furniture differently.

Both of your benches are beautiful. My favorite is the rolled armed one. I could picture a someone laying there in the hot summer reading a book. I wish I could do the grey that is see hear but I have found that the color does not seem to go well with the greens in my home. So I will look at your pictures and just love them.

Those are both beautiful pieces! The curves and lines are comforting to my eyes. If that makes any sense at all. Perhaps soothing and calming is a more accurate way to describe the sentiments.

Blessings to you and yours

These pieces are so beautiful!! Everything you've done to them is perfect!! Do you mind me asking what color of grey paint you used? It's perfect.

Hi Loretta:
I just discovered your blog. Oh my, it's lovely. I'm hooked. Could you please tell me what Swedish gray paint you used. It's beautiful! Thanks Sue@awelllovedhome.com
