Hello my friends, it has been quite a while since I have been able to work. My middle finger has bothered me since October. I was so afraid that it would get worse, so I decided to let it rest. I am happy to say that it is so much better. Not 100%, but better. Thank goodness it's my right hand (I'm left handed).
Okay, enough about the finger…
I am working on a full project. This one has me super excited. I got the inspiration from "Cinderella Moments", a blog I love. The artist makes the most adorable Travel Trailers. I've been wanting to make one for my daughters new room, so with slow sales and a desire to make a "completed project", I decided to give it a try.
The theme is French Flea Market Vintage. So far I have put part of the trailer together, stained the hardwoods, made wainscoting, textured the walls, made frames for the the doors and windows, tested stained glass window techniques, made a few baskets and what I am most proud of, made a French Flea Market Daybed.
I have Chez Marcelle in the back of my head, but every time I start working on it, I start feeling overwhelmed. So I decided I should start small. I'm having so much fun with this.
Here are a few pictures:
|Really excited about this daybed. Still have a little editing to do on the color, but so happy with it.|
|Close up of French Flea Market Daybed. I wanted it to look as though it has been in someones|
basement for years. I will be adding a tufted mattress and beautiful linen toss pillows.
|Kinda of, sorta of the direction. I am sure there will be lots of edits here.|
|Made a few edits to the structure.|
|Added some plaster to the walls. Paint at the top, wainscoting on the bottom, painted with|
Annie Sloan Chalk paints.
|Making wainscoting for the project. Will be painted Annie Sloan Pure White.|
|Walnut hardwood floors, stained and reading for waxing.|
|Playing around with stain glass panels for one of the window. Used colored pencils for the grey, Sharpies for the yellow. They both turned out nicely.|
