This Post Brought to You By The Letter “Y”… & A Chippy Door!

11

February 20, 2015 by Terry

As always, when I go to my booth at The Old Creamery, I have to put on the blinders or I’m in trouble.  There is ALWAYS something that catches my eye there as was the case with this old farmhouse pantry door that stole my heart right away.

I have come to learn that when something that catches my eye makes my heart rate rise… it is meant to be and I might as well just give in right away and purchase it as it will bother me until it is mine.

After trying to resist this door for quite some time … it went on sale and it was over for me in the self control department! ;0)

The chipping layers of paint, the slats on the door running both vertical and horizontal, (very unique!) and the most attractive part to me… it had the original hardware still.

For now I am using it as a backdrop for our beverage bar…  More on that makeover next time, but here’s a sneak peek at it…

What’s up with the “Y”?   Well… “Y” not?  …  I just like it!  My husband brought it back with him from a recent trip to Saskatchewan… he found it in an old abandoned farm house along with a few other goodies which I will share with you soon.

Of course I cleaned it up with steel wool and a wire brush before bringing it in.  It won’t be touching food or anything so I think my cleaning of it will be sufficient for just being on display.chippy door bergere chest and primitive coffee table 025I wonder what it belonged to and what it spelled out.

Well… It looks good with my new chippy door and adds a little visual interest and whimsy!

Loving the hardware on this door…

Chippy paint and aged wood… makes my heart sing!

What makes your heart flutter?

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
