Projects Pending.

Before I show you all a couple of projects I have waiting patiently in the wings, I'd like to share my latest addition to my hallway/gallery. I painted this canvas for our previous home which had an abundance of large expanses of bare walls. It was barely noticeable. But our current home has limited wall space to accomodate such a large canvas. As you will see, it is almost floor to ceiling.




Okay, now my to-do list. Please don't hold your collective breath for the "AFTER" pics as I don't want to be responsible for your early expiration.








The bedhead was a freebie off the road-side. I thought it was a queen and was looking forward to having a newly upholstered bedhead but alas it is King size so I'll do it up and then sell it.


The following is some fabric I picked up today and I will be using it for one of the above projects. Can you guess which one?




I'm a little unsure which trim to use...





or this....






I just love the second trim with it's delightful little pleat around the bottom.

I will try and get on with one of these projects very soon. Now that my son has finished school for the year my computer time will be severely diminshed so I've got no excuses not to get on with some projects :o)

Gorgeous fabric. I like both trims with it. Depending on what you're using it for, I prefer the pleats, they're more formal.

Trudging through e-bay this week and thinking of you! I can never find such inspired finds...or perhaps I don't have your vision to see beyond the obvious. I prefer the darker trim....gorgeous fabric. Look forward to seeing the results!

Ange...some awesome finds there..that bedhead is divine!! I think the first trim works really well...the second is also nice but gives it a more traditional look..whereas the first trim is fresh and fun...cant wait to see these when done...did I tell you I am SO JEALOUS of your upholstery skills...humph! ; ) x

I love the first trim Ange. It's fun and catches your eye. And your painting - WOW! I love this so much. I wish I had one.
Can't wait to see how your projects turn out. I'm sure they'll be lovely whatever you do to them.
