I have spent the better part of the day loading my new Lavender Candles in my Etsy shoppe
Which you can visit by clicking here
Making Hearts and shoe sachets!
This sachet is made from a vintage pillowcase that had seen better days!
the lettering is the palest lavender you have ever seen!
The pink houndstooth shoe sachets are for my own closet!
I filled them with lavender from my garden and French Lavender essential oil.
They match the chair I just finished
reupholstering...all by myself!
It's my first time!
When I bought it...
It was orange and ugly!
but it had good bones.
I knew it would be perfect for my new closet!
Learning to upholster furniture is something I have always wanted to learn! I couldn't think of a better project
Small ans simple!
I love the Shrimp Pink and Cream Houndstooth fabric!
And the nailhead trim really finished it off!
What do you think?
The closet is coming along quite nicely.
I should get to start wallpapering the ceiling this week!
My hubby has almost finished the ironing board thingy...and then it's mine to complete!
He also has to put the drawer fronts on...but he can do that after I wallpaper and paint.
I decided to stain the new cabinetry...a wonderful putty grey color!
So take another peek....This is the last time you will get to see it before I paint!
This is the little antique window...formally on our old garage!
I decided to leave it the peely original on the outside
(Which is actually in the hallway going down to the basement)
But paint the inside the same as the trim.
I will replace the glass panes when it's painted
The closet has no natural light so this was my solution!
I also love using things that were original to the house in unique ways!
Tomorrow, I am going to prime the crown moulding and baseboards
I can't wait!
For the last 4 and half years...
my closet has been a tiny space in my sewing room!
I only keep my in-season things out and everything else gets packed into storage tubs twice a year!
What a hassle!
But no more!
I am linking up with my dear friend Jami of freckled laundry fame.
If you haven't met her yet...She is one talented lady!
I hope you are having a fantastic Monday!
I think I will go back to my sewing machine...I have several more shoe sachets to sew!
Until next time!
