Latest Finds | Experimenting With Photography…

November 6, 2014 by Terry

Yesterday while out and about I decided to pop in a local antique store for a peek as I hadn’t been in there for quite some time.  This lovely window caught my eye right away.  I loved the look of the old putty cracking around each pane and the dry blonde wood.  I could see it matching the wood on my primitive table.  I also was drawn to this old sewing machine cover which I think will make a great blanket box or magazine holder or… endless uses for it!  Bottom line…it’s rickety and old and I love it!!

I decided to play around with the camera today and my new finds make for great subjects.  I also found this little tree the other day at my favorite thrift store.

This is the sewing machine lid I was mentioning had caught my eye…

DSCN3611DSCN3607I love how dry and worn it is…

Now the window…

DSCN3626I hung it up in my dining room window.  We have a little beverage bar set up there on my antique sewing machine and it makes a nice backdrop for this area.

DSCN3643Oh those big brown eyes!

I’m not sure if I’ll keep the window or not, but for now I am enjoying it.  I recently finished a pretty little antique china cabinet in Linen Milk Paint but forgot to do a photo shoot of it before I took it to my booth :0(  I will stop by tomorrow and take some pics to share!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
