So, my little something was a collection of chandelier crystals that I have had for years...flea market and garage sale finds. I've kept a containter of them, just waiting for the perfect project.
JR hung the fresh new chandelier on the front porch. So of course, that meant a dive into my stash to see what I had to recover cushions. I've been totally inspired as well by these Annie Sloan Paint Colors, which are new to our paint collection:
Then I discovered this loveliness:
As luck would have it, I found enough leftover outdoor fabric from last year’s patio furniture makeover to recover the rattan sofa cushion and a few pillows, including enough of a green batik print that I found on ebay years ago.
I love how a little spark of inspiration with a good dose of imagination and a lifestyle of frugality can give me a whole new look. So this week, I'm spending my evenings making cushion covers, pillows and other fun stuff for the porch.
Is this a throwback to the seventies or what? Is it me or am I seeing that old Avocado Green, Burnt Orange and Harvest Gold that were in my mother's kitchen?
Can you say groovy?
