Well, the answer is no. I did manage to pull off all the layers of fabric on the seat.
You see, Spring called. The weather has been warm, trees are budding out, and flowers blooming.
I just had to get outside and enjoy the delicious weather...which is a good thing because Winter decided to come roaring back. It's not super cold (60's) but the wind has been blowing like a banshee making it feel colder. Plus, I got sick about the time it decided to act like Winter again.
However, I did finish up a few quick and easy projects. I found an old magazine rack - a big one - pretty golden wood color (not). But it was just what I was looking for. (Bad blogger! I forgot to take a picture of it before I painted it). I painted it then whitewashed it.
We also went exploring one Saturday...well, ok. We were really going into Tyler to a countertop store but lo and behold, they are closed on the weekends. Boo. So we went exploring!
We ended up in Edom, TX - cute shops. One was a pottery place. Bruce bought me these pieces:
I also found this phone at an antique mall in Salado the beginning of the month. It's just the style I was looking for. The color isn't exactly what I want so it will be getting a makeover when I get to it and the table. (Soon I hope)!
Lastly, Bruce worked on getting the barn cleaned out of the junk the previous owners had left behind. We are discussing what I want as far as the art studio goes...windows, door, etc. I'm very excited! This is happening!!!
He's promised to keep that wood beam showing when he puts the ceiling in. Yay! I have some red tongue and groove boards from a friend too that were in her breakfast room. I have some ideas for using them. There's not enough for a whole wall but I should get some decorative use out of them.
As you can see, I haven't been wasting my time. I promise I'll get to the telephone table soon. I really do want to get it done...now if this nasty cold will just go away!
Hope you are well and getting glimpses of Spring.
