Announcement & An American Boy Quilt

One Month To Win It

We are SOOOO excited to be a part of Season #3 of One Month to Win It. 
Be sure and check out some incredible past projects,
and to vote for the final week of season #2,
 and to start voting next week for season #3!!!



I did this quilt in one night.  I got the free pattern HERE.  I did a few modifications, but like its name "Speedy Baby Quilt" it went together fast.  I donated it to our Church Fundraiser.  Its a fun gala called "Artesia".
I have made lots of girly quilts, but this was my first boy quilt.  I have to admit it was hard to let go.  I just loved how all the "americana" prints went together! 


Have a great Day!

Wicker Chair: Before & After



A friend asked me to redo her chair.  She is a photographer and wanted it for a photo prop.


It was looking photo worthy...thats for sure.  I had to take out about a MILLION staples. 
I guess whoever originally made the chair wanted it red forever!



I few coats of high gloss spray paint it it looked fantastic.


I bought the 3/8 button kits at hobby lobby.  I covered them with my black satin, by following the package directions.  I made my own ruffle and piping from the black satin.  I bought the gold decorative nails at Lowes. I just hammered them into place over my ruffles edge.  It took me over an hour.

Come to MY HOUSE!


 
Have you heard about the awesome contest going on RIGHT NOW at Vintage Revivals?  You get a room makeover with the help of the SUPER talented Mandi!! 
 
So here are some of the places that I need a major OVERHAUL.    I live in a Log Cabin.  Some log cabins have logs on the outside and drywall on the inside.  This cabin has logs through and through.  Its very cool, but makes it a little more challenge for me to decorate.  Thats why I need this contest.  I need an expert with lots of creativity like Mandi!
Take your pick of rooms.  Remember my "ugly laundry room".  
 
Or remember my girl's room...I have a clean slate  ready for you, Mandi
No curtains, no carpet, blank walls?  HELP!!
AND there is also my kitchen.  Its very dark, out of date, and lots of flourescent lights!! 
We started to renovate, and took off the backsplash...we still need one.


So...I would LOVE your votes.  I have been prego 3 out of 4 years and our home has suffered.
I am ready to give it some love and attention and NEED HELP!! 
Thanks for the contest Vintage Revivals!!
