Hello Lovely friends!
I’ve missed you!! I’ve been totally MIA these past few weeks…. we had an amazing 3 week family holiday to the US. Since returning I held my first market stall and have just been crazy busy catching up with life!
I’ve missed this little blog and reading all of my faves too! High time I got back up on the Bloggy horse… and what better way than to share a sweet little makeover… Giddy Up!
So this project has been a work in progress for an embarrassingly long time. I started it before we went on holidays… so I’m happy to have finally finished it!
I bought some coffee grain sacks a few months ago, with a few ideas in mind but nothing concrete. I started by washing them. Now let me tell you wet hessian sack is not the nicest smell, not quite wet dog, but not exactly pleasant! Anyway they dried in the sun and smell perfectly fine now 🙂
So they were sitting innocently next to ironing board, which is next to my sewing machine and I was ironing the boys school shirts when I spied them out of the corner of my eye. They were totally beckoning me. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was cutting and sewing.
I’ve had the vanity stool kicking around for ages, it was my Nan’s, she used to sit on it to do her make up. I recovered it years ago in a dark denim fabric and it was looking more than a little tired.
So my little vanity stool got a coffee grain sack reupholster job and a new lick of paint. Here she is after…
I love the green stripe and the stencilled details.
I only used a small piece of the sack and I have some fun plans for the rest of it!
Do you totally stumble into starting a project? Or do you plan?
Thanks for popping by,
