Today I have a fun project to share with you – it’s blog hop time again and this time we are sharing lamps. I’ve got a fun Vintage Lamp Makeover to share with you and then you can hop over and see the lamps my friends have to share.
I love IKEA, and I love IKEA hacks. I even have a pinterest board just for IKEA hacks. It’s just so cool what you can do with the plain wood pieces that IKEA sells at very affordable prices.
Now I know some people aren’t that impressed with IKEA and think their furniture is super ‘cheap’. Well, it IS cheap in price and it’s not built with the quality and durability of hardwood furniture made in a furniture shop. But it wasn’t intended to be the fine, high-end hardwood furniture from a furniture shop! It’s well-made, inexpensive furniture that comes in pieces that make it easy to buy and transport home.
It’s project challenge time again and this one is a really fun one for me. They’ve all been fun but this one is a bit unique. Our category was ‘Reclaimed Wood’.
What’s so unique about that you say? Well, the wood I used is Reclaimed Cypress from the 1800’s! The actual age of the tree I don’t know, but this stuff comes out of the Mississippi Bayous and the logs have been underwater in the bayou since the 1800’s sometime. And the logs are HUGE. Hundreds of years old and preserved in the swamp for a couple hundred more!
Today ‘Sew a Fine Seam’ as a business is 3! To celebrate I’m kicking off a series of blog posts about how to start a business, how to run a business, and lots of tips and advice, and mistakes-not-to-make when running a business. And tomorrow, come back cause I have a really fun giveaway planned to further celebrate!
Business is Bliss 101
Time for another Project Challenge – this time our category was ‘furniture’. What fun! You know I love a good furniture makeover – and I usually have plenty of that going on around here.
I’m sharing my Milk Paint and Grain Sack Makeover. I have had these 2 dining room chairs in my stash for awhile and I finally got them finished. I started painting them several weeks ago but they got pushed to the back burner when other, more important things demanded my attention.
