OTTILIA CATHERINE's pop up sale

At last~

things are mostly unpacked, cleaned, staged, and tagged.  The space for this sale is FULL! And numerous things are stashed in the wings to fill it back up when space opens up.

TIRED is a fit description and I am dreaming of a hot, sunny beach and a bottomless drink!

Thought I’d share a couple more of those quick projects to jazz things up for the sale!

A very quick rocker and chair REcover!

using an old mattress pad for upholstery!In the haste of time I guess I forgot BEFORE pictures~again.  The chair got a full on paint job, but the rocker just needed cleaning and polishing.

BOTH needed a new seat and I had to cut wood to fit and start from scratch.

-I used sagless burlap on the chair and

-believe it or not-

an old mattress pad on the rocker!  The soft “patina” and stitching pattern was absolutely perfect for this caned rocker.

You just never know where the best “fabric” can come from  ; D  always keep an open mind!

And BTW-

I dug through a box of old lace & pillow flange tatting we found to use for trim instead of gimp or welting on some of these projects!

just a great old rocker!

I forgot to iron out that crease mark in the sagless burlapoooops!
THIS burlap is tightly woven and SOFT!  And, I think, fine on an occasional chair seat.
