Wedding preparations

What a week! I knew it would be a busy one but didn't expect it to fly by so quickly. I am juggling quite a few balls in the air right now and this week they all stayed up nicely. 

In between my regular design projects, I am stretching myself to do some crafty DIY projects for the upcoming weddings. I picked up a new chair at the Flea Market last weekend and painted it to match one of the wedding colors. And I painted some frames.

I also painted some of the furniture that I had used for my daughter's wedding four years ago ... it was a breeze with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. I used French Linen. A new knob from Anthropologie finished it off.

And do you remember this chair?

I found it on Craigslist ... it was in pretty bad shape.

I stripped it down ...

And painted it French Linen too ...

And then sent it out to have some blue velvet put on it.

It came back yesterday all dressed up and ready for a wedding. Happy Friday Everyone!
