Reupholstering is an "old trade" that is a wonderful way to turn an old piece of furniture or family heirloom into something new again.  Each piece that is brought into my boutique is literally taken apart piece by piece.  All old fabric is removed entirely and your piece is brought back to life with new fabric and design ideas. You are receiving a brand new piece of furniture on "old bones".

Here are a few houses that I have created and would like to share:

Antique Dresser with Oval Mirror

Had fun with this project by mixing Annie Sloan Chalk Paints along with some other favorites of mine together for the final result... Here are the before and after pictures... This was one project that really sang to me on how it should be painted. It became quite a simple project to do which was exciting.  It now sits very pretty in my shop, "Country Charm" located in Battleground, WA...



Thanks for stopping by today!

Topless Table

Ever wonder what to do with a topless table?  Discovered a coffee table at a garage sale for $5! I was excited at first, but then realized that the glass top was missing.  Stood there for a few seconds thinking ok, maybe I should bag it, then a spark flared up inside me and said, NO! don't leave this table, you will find a way to make it are the "before" pictures of the poor topless table.  If you look closely, you can see the sticker that has how much it is ($5).

Now, here are the "after" pictures of the no longer "topless" table...

ASC paint, Paris Gray, was used for the metal casings of the table, and my own chalk paint in black was used for the legs. The top of the table is made out of wood, which was cut with a miter saw, then painted with the Paris Gray.  Once dried, I then used a wet sea sponge and barely dipped it into the black paint.  I spread the sponge over the top in a horizontal direction.  Once dried, then I stenciled the lettering and flower onto the no longer "topless" table.

Once again, thanks for stopping by and don't be shy to leave a comment or question. Have a great day or evening depending upon what time you are reading this...

Au Revoir!

Pendant Lighting

A new addition to Seek & Find Designs is going to be an array of lighting.  Depending on what kind of different treasures I can find at garage sales will depend upon what the lighting will look like.  Here is a wire basket with really cute colored rhinestone flowers displayed that was turned into a "chandelier" light.  

It really is quite easy to make if your up for a fun project.  You just need a lamp socket with a pull string,  and then attach the plug cord into the top of the socket (the socket comes with instructions for the wiring)  Also, I decided to get a bit fancy with the pull cord by purchasing a vintage looking cord.  I simply cut the gold pull string near the inside of the socket and then hooked the fancy pull string with the clasp that is already attached. The wire basket had to have some of the wiring removed around the base of it in order for me to wire it securely and have it lined up in the center correctly.  You can attach any kind of low wattage bulb you desire.  For this project, I used a "Vintage" bulb that has 40 watts.  As you can see from the photo, it gives off that yellowish tint that so many of those antique and vintage lights do.  You pretty much could use anything you have laying around your house for a creative light just as long as it has a hole in it for the wiring.

Well, enjoy and have yourself a wonderful day!  Thanks again for stopping by.
