Pendant lamp

Earlier this year I saw this wire basket at my mother-in-law's and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it...turn it into a pendant lamp!!! It is larger than the picture shows, will try and get a better angle posted later today.

It was super easy as the basket already had an opening in the bottom that the light kit would fit through. I think it would look great hanging over a breakfast table, in a foyer, hanging outside over the front door or anywhere you want/need some lighting. I personally like it black but I will paint it whatever color the buyer requests. Contact me for pricing.

Mom and daughter rocking chair re-do

I had the pleasure of re-doing a rocking chair for some friends from church who were expecting their first baby. This rocking chair belonged to the mom's family and she was rocked in it as a little girl and wanted to update it to use with her own little girl.

The original color was an olive/avocado green and they wanted to go with an antique white and distress it down to where some of the original green would come through...I tried a new product on it, Webster's Chalk Paint powder and I love the way it turned out!

The baby arrived a few days early and had to spend some time in the hospital but she is home now. When I dropped off the rocking chair yesterday they loved it and were already rocking that sweet baby in it before I left.

The after pic was taken in too much sun but I hope you can get a good idea of the final finish.

Monogram Pumpkin Decor

I made these pumpkin decorations last fall and decided to offer them again this year if there is any interest. If you are not the Fall/Halloween decorating type I can also offer these for Christmas with a ball in place of the pumpkin. Pricing starts around $25 and can be painted in any color and glittered in any color. Contact me soon if wanting to use for Fall or to get a jumpstart on your Christmas decorating.
