The Picasso chair

Friday, May 27, 2011

This adorable chair was a birthday present for Max who was turning 1.  Anna and her other son
 Harry {Absolutely Beautiful Things} combined their artistic talents and created this unique present
using fabric felt markers. Anna found the small vintage chair and had it upholstered in white canvas.
 She included a special note on the back along with the date. I think this is one of the most special
gifts I have ever seen. 

I bought a white canvas club chair for my daughters room years ago. The sole reason behind the
purchase was to do the exact same thing that Anna has done. But, I wanted to include everything
from her {then} 11 years of life.....that's a lot of events! Then with every passing year, more great
events were happening {funny how life does that...}

Maybe I will consider having it completed by the time she graduates from high school in 2 years :)   

To see more about this chair, visit Anna's blog. It is a real treat. 

Holy Rug!!!

Now how fun would these felt rugs be????? I am imagining a huge monogram made within
the 'polka-dot' rug.....or how about a game of 'Connect Four' ?!

I wish I knew more about them, but, the website is in another language. A language that I
am embarrassed to admit I don't even recognize!! Hebrew, maybe??? Someone
educate me.

Do you like my rack?

I have a client who has a game room with a pool table. Pool tables have sticks...
Sticks need somewhere to hang out. I really did not want to devote a huge chunk
 of the wall to something like this:

{If you are the *proud* owner of one of these monster racks, my apologies...}

And although these are emmmm tempting, I certainly didn't want to devote this much floor space either.

yea, just not the rustic rack I had in mind....  


So handy hubby cut me a stump about 25" tall and we got to work.
I sanded the top with an electric sander. 

We found the middle of the stump and using a 1 1/4" wood boring bit with an extension, he
drilled straight down about 8".

I marked 5 other points spacing them evenly. 

Then those 5 holes were drilled.

The top got a little clear wax and the sticks now have a new home.

Simple, rustic, and affordable ;)

Have you noticed a few changes on the blog? We are tweaking and adding so bear
with me please while the kinks get worked out! I will explain the 'new stuff' in a day or so.
