Long Break!

Hi everyone! I apologize for such a long break, we have been working really hard getting our new workshop set up. Here is a picture:
There you have it. That table was a crazy find, we went to a "free" sale which turned out to not be free (long story) and scored this table.  It's HUGE! We don't have a big enough truck at our disposal, so we paid extra to have it delivered. Well, we got a call that night around ten p.m. saying they dropped it off at the liquor store NEAR our house... and that's it! SO Ross and I, at ten p.m., were carrying an enormous table down the middle of the street.  It was very awkward, but very worth it! We can each work from a side with plenty of space. 

I've started in on a few projects.  The first is one of the chandeliers. I decided to break all the glass out, and I will paint it bright red with oversized light bulbs.
Breaking the glass was a fun stress relief!
 The other project is a set of four chairs from my Grandma.

It's so cool to be working on these chairs after growing up around them. It's neat to think all this time I never knew I'd be redoing them one day!
Set of four, all matching. Here they are primed:
Like our make-shift paint booth? There is one chair missing from the photo. I think I am going to paint them a light blue, and use this fabric for the seats and the back:
I haven't finalized any of the plans though, so it is still open if anyone wants to reserve them to buy and choose the colors and fabrics.  Anyone have suggestions of chair color, after seeing this print?

Ross is working on a few things right now too, but I only have a picture of one. This mirror:
It's pretty big - It's been primed now too, and is about to receive a coat of color. This is also up for reservation if anyone is interested. 

Thanks for checking in, I'll post progress pictures soon! Have a great one.

  1. Hi, I came across your site yesterday and wanted to tell you how great it is! And that I think you are my color palate soul mate! Love those bold color combos!

    1. THANK YOU! That's so great to hear, yea... I love the colors. Can't help it. Even when I try to tone it down I just end up spicing it back up. Oh well, it's fun :D Glad to have you here!
