Beautiful Blue Table Runners!!

 

Blue is such a wonderfully relaxing and comforting color!  No matter where you live, it can remind you of the sky, the water, a relaxing day at a spa. Blue will work in any environment.

These pretty blue table runners are made from a wonderful soft and nubby 100% cotton fabric that is reminescent of old fashioned grainsacks. Just added to the shop, these wonderful runners are a great way to add color and warmth to your home for the spring and summer months.

If you are in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area, stop by Vintage and Vino in Queencreek May 18 & 19 and see them in person.  I’ll have some available for you there!

 

 

 

Handmade Home

After spending many months cleaning, scraping and painting just about everything around the house in preparation of selling, I finally got to enjoy doing some quick (maybe not too quick) sewing projects to pull the house together just a little bit more.

One of those items was this table cover.  It is actually a shower curtain that I cut and hemmed into a circle.  I found one in colors that were fairly neutral, matched my furniture, and was the perfect size to use on this table.  A lot less expensive to do that using upholstery/drapery fabric.

Another project was this slipcover for the loveseat.  I know it’s a little crumpled in this picture, but I used a natural color canvas fabric that I pre-washed.  I actually whipped this together quickly (well, rather quickly) just to get it done before the holidays.  I will probably make another one down the road, but for now, it’s an improvement!

My first slipcover, I really learned a lot!

I also needed something to add a little color in the den, so I used some floral drapery fabric that I had left after making window coverings for the french doors a couple of years ago.

A little hard to see here, but I wanted to give you a quick look.  Pretty simple, yet it really added to the room.

This is what the french doors look like.  I made the window treatments for the doors because we had a sleep sofa in the room that we used for out of town company.  We just removed the tassel tie-backs so the windows were covered for privacy.

This gives you a little more insight to what I’ve been doing, and why I have been so absent the last few months.  If you would like to see some of my furniture painting projects that I have been working on, stop by my other blog, All My Eggs.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!

Take care,
