the story of a chair. {finally madeover}

Y'all remember what I started with, right? 

This little chair had so much character ... Just needed a little help! 

all sanded and ready for primer

primed and ready for her first coat! 

before she's distressed ...



feedsack pillow added (thanks Sissie!)

and FINALLY with the pillow I won from Cottage & Vine

So what do y'all think? I'm in love! 

Going to be REALLY hard for me to take it to the shop! She's looking AWFULLY good in my guest room! :) 

I'm not sure what the color is ... I wanted a coral and Home Depot happened to have a good OOPS! color! Lucky Me!

chair redo & {newbie} linky party

I had BIG plans to head down to OIB today ... A day filled with shopping & catching up with mama! Well the Mr. caught whatever bug I had last week ... 

I'm pretty sure he thinks he should be on life support at the moment ... Stayed home from work today and is {REALLY} NEEDY of some attention from this Cottage Gal! 

So I'm at home ... Playing nurse to one VERY sick hubs. 

Oh and FINALLY getting to that chair I showed y'all last week! 

Also linking up to DebbieDoo's Newbie Linky Party! It's for new bloggers or bloggers with less than 100 followers! So if you fit in there ... LINK UP! Come on! It'll be fun! :)

great weekend!

Y'all I need to send a BIG APOLOGY your way ... The blog has been AWFULLY quiet this weekend! 

I've been so busy with the BIG sale at Artisans! We had SUCH  great response to The PC which meant lots of sales and LOTS of driving back & forth to restock! Definitely a good problem to have! 

Mama & I will be out & about tomorrow getting new things for the stores and of course trying to pick up the latest ideas for Spring

The weather here is GORGEOUS and has definitely sparked us to start setting up Spring vignettes! 

See y'all in a couple of days! Hopefully with FAB NEW FINDS!

So most of you know that I've been pretty under the weather this week ... Well my spirits were lifted yesterday afternoon at the mailbox ... Now before you start thinking I'm a total WEIRDO ... Let me explain! 

Several weeks ago, Cottage & Vine hosted a giveaway ... And one LUCKY winner was to receive this fabulous pillow! 

Well y'all guess who that LUCKY winner was?! You got it! ME! 

Now I don't typically win ... As in, I've never won anything in my entire life! So not only did I win but I won this FABULOUS pillow from a FABULOUS fellow blogger!

I tested it out yesterday in several spots in my house ... 

I think I like it on the loveseat the best ... What do you think? 

If you haven't been over to Cottage & Vine, you really should! Rene always has great posts! 


So thanks Rene for hosting the giveaway and thanks Fabulous but Frugal for the BEAUTIFUL pillow! :) 

Happy Friday Y'all!

{sick cottage girl} and some inspiration!

Y'all when I woke up yesterday morning, I knew that I wasn't feeling well ... I tried to blame the weather. Turns out this gal is SICK! {ugh! ugh! ugh!}

So although I had EVERY intention of working on lots of projects yesterday ... I only got as far as the couch, my laptop, and LOTS of online browsing. 

But in doing so ... I found some GREAT inspirations for all things SPRING! (is anyone else as ready for it as we are?!) 

loving the thoughts of going back to using CLOTH table linens! 

vintage suitcases

vintage keys

Beatriz Ball for EVERY occasion

pretty daffodils

vintage dough bowls

bright & cheery enamelware

vintage chianti bottles

vintage Pepsi crates as planters

architectural salvage gates 

bright tulips

vintage Ball jars (especially BLUE!)

mix & match white dishes

So what do y'all think? Likey? Have any inspirations of your own? Do share them! :) 

Don't forget about the BIG Artisans sale this weekend! 20% off these beauties!
