Shabby chic-Farmhouse-50's sewing chair re-furb.

Today's the day I am going to attempt to finish up my re-furb of the mid-century modern sewing machine chair. Had my cup of coffee to get me going this morning now if I can just pull away from computer long enough to get it done. I have the next 2 days off from work...YAYY! I'm gonna jump right on soon as I browse  Pinterest. Have a wonderful day...hope to have pics for you soon.

Kitty Cat's & Vampires..My..Oh..My!

Nana's beautiful little kitty.

Jaedyn & her Mommy, Magan. 
So..we've had two nights in a row of Halloween dress up and it isn't even Halloween yet. My granddaughter Jaedyn has been a kitty Cat for her dance class on Wednesday and a Vampire on Thursday night for Trunk-or-Treat at one of our local High Schools. She was so precious as the Kitty Cat (my fave I might add). I think I did a pretty good job on the make-up being my first time,(pats on back). Now, to just get Halloween night over with!

Halloween costume hunt

My daughter, granddaughter and I are off to look for a "second" costume for the little one to wear to dance class tomorrow night, her mom thinks the Vampire outfit might be a little too much, so she will have to save that one for Halloween night. Then it's off to work for me from 4-10. I know I'm lucky to have a job...but it sure would be nice to make my living off my flea market furniture re-furbs. A girl can dream...right? Oh...did I mention I just recently went to work after being a stay-at-home-mom for the past 23 years? Minimum wage and "almost" full time, but it does allow me to go I shouldn't complain.

Thrift store chair on the mend...slowly but surely.

I finally got my hands on some Annie Sloan chalk paint and wax, I love it. I am refurbishing a mid-century modern sewing machine chair. I've de-stressed it and covered the seat in a farm-ish fabric complete with roosters and all.  I'm brainstorming on a way to fix the inside of the seat like a little sewing box ( did I mention the seat lifts up and reveals a little compartment?). I will post before and after pics soon.
