A time for New Things.
I'm looking forward to it and hope you are too.
How about this for something new...
Here's a warm winter welcome with a fur fabric seat.
It's my Eskimo and Denim Rocker.
Maybe it's just my winter weirdness but I'm really liking the fur.
It makes a cozy corner to read and have a cup of coffee in the morning.
I started with a rocker I bought at the thrift store
many years ago. It needed love and repair.
One of the back slats was missing so I had to replace that.
This is how I painted it then.
It was definitely time for an update.
I painted over in Miss Mustard Seed Shutter Gray Milk Paint.
Then I rubbed on the Miss Mustard Seed Dark Antiquing Wax.
I used this combination in a different way on The Painted Sideboard.
On that piece I used clear wax first then the antique wax.
This gives it the Worn Denim look I'm going for.
The detail pattern I decided on
reminds me of a stitch pattern or beadwork pattern
from Indian design.
I'm thinking Moccasins and beaded purses.
To make the circle design, paint the rim of a lid
and press in place.
I'm using white and suede mix for my light paint detail.
Now here's where I decide to go with
I could have been all civilized and went with
this awesome coffee sack that I have..
But my winter mood today decides on the unexpected texture.
Actually, I used my Wal-Mart rug.
I only used about 6 staples to attach.
so it would be very easy to remove
and switch out.
Oh, but why would I want to!
I can see this in a lodge with antlers and a big stone fireplace.
(or my bedroom : ) )
I'm looking forward to all of the Handmade Things 2013 Brings!
