Grain Sacks. Linen. Rusty-Crusty Iron.

Three of my favorite things.

Projects seem to be a constant activity around here. It's hard to resist a gorgeous bolt of white linen or yards and yards of antique hemp linen. The project factor has been ramped up with the Home and Garden Show at Monticello right around the corner.

Would you like to see a few of these projects?

I thought so.

First up is a chair that had good lines but really bad upholstery. It has been given new life with my very favorite fabric of all fabrics.

Antique hemp linen straight from Europe. It's almost painful making that first cut into this precious fabric. I love this chair and am having a hard time parting with it.

Jute felt right for the back.

What should I show you next...

How about this ottoman slip covered in white linen.

Here is a sweet pillow using the same white linen.

Group shot.

Today's project is making a cushion for this gorgeous garden bench.
The patina on her is perfectly rusty, crusty and chippy.

Pictures will be posted soon!

These are just a few of the projects underway. I will post more as we get closer to the show.

The Home and Garden Show starts April 6. The vendors are so talented and are working hard to create a gorgeous show for you. If you are in the Portland area or planning a road trip, come and see us!

for more information.

Thanks for looking!

Table Love

It's hard to resist a great table. Industrial, farm, round.

Let's have a look...

This one is called a Flatiron dining table and is from Restoration Hardware.

How about a concrete top... 

Love this beefy beauty from Pottery Barn...

Round tables can free up precious space and help with traffic flow in a tight area.
This is the French Urn Pedestal from Restoration Hardware.

This is my dining room as shown in this post
The round pedestal table works great in the space.

Love the detail on these legs...

Another round...

What is your preferred table style? Round, square, rectangle, pub...
So many choices!
