What a good weekend it has been! My sweet husband and I have been able to wrap up some projects and start new ones! He finished building and sanding the cornice and I love it! It looks even better than I thought it would. Here is a little sneak peak at it. I was having trouble getting the whole thing in a picture...
This is the middle of it...we added a little decorative wood piece to it. My husband sanded and wood puttied until the wood was smooth, so when I finish painting, we shouldn't be able to see the knots. The good thing is if we can, we can just sand and putty a bit more until it's just right. It saved ten dollars to get the less expensive wood, and it just took more work to make it smooth...he says it was worth it! :) I primed the cornice, and will finish painting it this week. I will definitely show a picture of it when it's up in our room! :)
I found this chair at a thrift store a while back, and loved it. I have given it a new coat of white paint, but the seat needs help! It is covered with ugly green Christmas fabric right now. I am going to cover it with some cute pink fabric I found and want to make a pink tulle skirt for it, too! This chair is for my youngest daughter, who has been waiting very patiently for me to finish it, while she uses a spare chair at her desk! :)
And speaking of Gracie, here she is giving her doll "Baby" a bath. Baby has had many baths this weekend...
...and is feeling very clean, I'm sure! :) (Do you see those cupboards? They are one of the projects I have up my sleeve. They really really need to be repainted!)
One last thing...you might recognize this fabric from when I found it last summer. I ended up using the polka dot kind for an apron. I especially love the yellow fabric, and am excited because I think it will look perfect in my kitchen as curtains! I have some pretty ones in there now that I found on discount and they are pretty, but am not sure they will work with the ones I want to make for the other windows nearby. But this fabric just may work well! I love the happy, vintage look to it! What do you think?
Did you all have a good weekend? Did it go as fast for you as it did for us? :) I hope you all had a fantastic one, and that you have a good Monday, too! Have a blessed night! :)
