Dropcloth Slipcover

O,K so before I get into my completed projects for the week I have to tell that I was the LUCKY girl to be chosen for an interview over at Threadneedle studio so if you would like to know a little bit more about how I get started doing what I do stop over and check it out. Angie has a great site with lots of inspiring work and fun posts. She really knows what she's doing!!

Now on to business. I'm getting closer to getting my to~do list from last week all finished up. This was one of the things that I had on it. A chair to slipcover for the The Hog Shed Done ~ 1 chair and I'm really liking it. the pillow was my inspiration for using the Drop cloth as the fabric

it was an old feedsack and the color and texture was really close. I wanted to do something fun on the back and I thought these extra large eyelets were perfect

Pictures not great but they are a brushed silver color

oh yeah and some other pretties for the shop too.

Have a great weekend

A Couple of Projects Compleated

First Project done: This is my completed projects Shelf. This one took way longer than I thought it would as I had to spray paint in the cold spring that meant I had to warm up the garage, spray paint, turn off the heat, open the garage door to air out and then repeat the whole process about six times! other than that all I spent on the project was about 14.00 the shelf was a left over the wallpaper that I used for the shelf lining was also left over the only thing I spent money on was a couple of cans of Cheep spray paint and the two big baskets at the top which was my biggest bargain these were 15.00 each at wal mart a couple of weeks ago but when I stopped in today to look for baskets they were on clearance for 5.00 each!!! SCORE.
Second Project done: window treatments and wall words also pretty cheap as I already had the fabric and the vintage lace that I put at the bottoms

I really like the way they turned out

Clean and Simple.

This week's to~do list.

Lots on the to do list for this week
First there will be painting Painting this shelf so that I can have a place to keep finished projects that are ready for Market
next a little window and wall treatment for the shop I've been wanting to do this for quite some time

I've found the fabric and even a little extra something for fun. Those removable wall words.
Yup these windows defiantly need something

I will also be working on some things for the next Hog Shed Sale
I found these Feed sacks? a couple of months ago they will be pillows

This chair will get a whole new look inspired by the feed sacks

I'm slipcovering the chair with a drop cloth I cant wait

and then I well need to get creative with this stuff I'm thinking bags but you never know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you stop back to see my progress.

Tooth Fairy Pillows for The Hog Shed

An idea that I have had for quite some time now and I've finally gotten around to putting a basket full of them together. Sweet little pillows that have a pocket on the front. In this pocket there is an envelope, actually there are two one for the tooth and one for "the tooth fairy" to switch out.

I was so excited when I found these little envelopes they have sweet little bits of fancy confetti in them, just enough to make it special .

These will be another addition to the Hog Sheds wonderful March sale. Hope to see you there!
