She had done this with old wooden posts and I thought it a fabulous idea. You will want to check Patti out as she has some wonderful ideas
AND a beautiful blog as well.
The concrete is still curing and the pots will be dressed up with some moss and such,
But still, aren't they wonderful!!
My curb appeal is building one piece at a time
With the help of my sweet friends
And the giving of their generous finds.
You can't forget the back half acre either, as it continues to grow and
Become an entity of it's own, especially when the Trade Days Antique Flea Market is going on.,
Thank you to all of those who have helped me get to where I am today, whether it be through kind words, comments, or as a faithful customer. Even those who have made it more difficult on me than it should have been, Because you made me stronger than I ever thought I could be. They may say there is "power in numbers", However, in my case I would chance to disagree,
This is the bottom of an old chair I've been working on. My daughter had it in her office for several years before the
Springs just started to pop. It's probably about 60 years and the white upholstery was starting to show it. Not with wear, but with general use, so I decided to work on it....but that's for another post. Today I wanted to show you what I did with the worn out strapping that was no Longer holding up the heavy springs.
I have to tell you that firstly I gathered it up and threw it in the trash. I walked by it a couple of times before reaching in and pulling it out. I knew it would be good for something.
And it was. As I was talking to a customer today, I started rolling and folding the burlap Like I do with my ribbon roses.
I ended up with about seven of these wonderful, textural beauties.
And to think......I was going to throw all of this away.
Goes to show you inspiration is where you find it.
