Upholstered Chairs

 I finished these two chairs this afternoon after finding out that I was hired as a teacher!!! The fabric is a gorgeous buttery gold chenille and the wood finish is antique white with a walnut glaze. They look just perfect with the little oval table and industrial candle holders. The chairs are accented with gold trim and a few antiqued brass tacks to add a bit of bling! $200 for the pair.
 I know I listed the candle holders this week at a lower price, but now they are $10 each...candles included!
If you by both chairs and the table I'll part with them for $225.
I don't advertise my frames and chalkboards very well, but here are a couple of smaller ones. Both frames have an 8x10 opening (a bit smaller than that). The open frame is $10 and the chalkboard is $15.

Cast Iron Ottoman

I rescued the base of this ottoman from my in-laws' scrap yard. It is the base to an old cast-iron woodstove. It required a few new bolts, a wire brush cleaning and fresh coat of black paint, but I think it may be one of my best so far! Priced at $75! The dimensions are 22" x 25" and 14" tall.

New Additions

 My pride and joy! This shutter cabinet took many hours of my life this past week, but it was worth it! These shutters were the ones I pictured in an earlier blog. The pic below shows the inside. It would be great storage for linens, crafts, office supplies, you name it! SOLD!!

 New bench! SOLD!!!
 Another new bench and many frames! Bench SOLD! Large chicken wire frame SOLD.
 These two green chalkboards are just fabulous aren't they? The big one is SOLD!
 Without chalk this looks a bit like a television, but I was making sure the paint was cured before trying it out.  SOLD!

 This little table is made from an antique milk crate.  It reminds me of WALL-E! SOLD!
 This is the view looking down through the milk crate table.
 Large white chalkboard SOLD!

I had a sale this week and it wasn't as successful as I had hoped. But, alas! There is a flea market in downtown Grand Rapids I am planning to sell my stuff at next week Thursday.  Check out what I have created over the past week!
