Industrial Stool

If you've ever owned a vintage vanity,
you may understand that a regular 
sized chair simply does not work well.
My vanity looks like a desk, but most
have mirrors & were for women to do
their hair and apply make up.

So to make my waterfall style piece usable,
I set off to Junk Bonanza in search of the
perfect sized stool!

I had measurements & a tape measure.
It didn't take me long to locate exactly what 
I was hoping to find.  The stool had to be 
narrow & short.

I nearly stole this stool, at a mere $12.
That left me quite a bit of mad money to 
blow at the show!

Now just look how perfect the stool is
in it's new permanent home...

I needed a hefty stool, 
not a foo-foo chair.
I love it.

Let me know what you think!
Does it look okay together?

Bundt Pan Pumpkin

I found a chippy old bundt pan for sale &
gave it a coat of orange paint.



I put a screw up from the bottom, through two sizes of washers,
 then the pan opening, then a washer, into the wood handle.

I wrapped the faux leaf wire stems 
round the pumpkin handle.

This was a pretty easy project.
I think it looks darling.

Inspiration Board

I love the idea of an inspiration board.
With all the cork boards I've been stockpiling,
it seemed like a fun project to tackle.

Fall is the best season!
So with that in mind, I snipped out of
magazines & the local paper.

Wagon wheels, roads littered with leaves, pumpkins
and apple pie gave this cork board WAY more appeal.
Then a burlap bow & my own photos personalized it!
