A Chair Makeover......Before and After



I wanted to share one of my newest creations - a dreamy cottage makeover. I recently found these wonderful old metal twisted leg chairs with the original wood seats and had to have them - I could just see how they would look made over. Chair stared out bright yellow and with a fresh coat of white and a new pink rose ruffled skirt cushion, TADA!! it was transformed. I do enjoy making over old shabby vintage pieces I find in my foraging at yard sales, flea markets and estate sales!! Now what should I do with the heart shaped chair.....

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
