Sewing Seat with hinged top

New project, old ideas. Drop Cloth, stencils, 
ASCP Provence, clear wax.
Sewing Seat, hinged top
...the process, ASCP Provence with clear wax
drop cloth seat cover (used PowerShot carefully this time. 
Used old seat cover as a pattern, stapled (one per centre, pulling taunt 
and repeat as needed around all edges in alternating turns).

Poked around to find hinge holes under cavnas, screwed hinges to top and then to base (thank you DH).
Used ASCP and stencilled three fleur de lis.
Tried out a few vignette variations. That was fun. My fav were the additions of French Ivory smalls.

  2. Great job. What a handy and pretty little piece of furniture. Loving the ivory smalls too.

    Good finds are thin on the ground over here in Wicklow at the moment.

  3. Hi Joy, you visited me and now I'm visiting you and joining your followers. Thanks for finding me as I have enjoyed looking back over some of your blogs. I loved the pyrex ware collection. To think that I took most of mine into the charity shop years ago! What a good idea filling old milk bottles with marbles. I never get over all the things I am learning blogging! I loved a peek at your stalls and would really like to have time browsing there for real! I also loved today's makeover. I like the way you put the before and after side by side...so much easier to see what you are doing! Right...better get my day on the go. Good getting to know you and hope to get to know you better.

  11. It came out great! I've been wanting to try drop cloth for curtains in my office and want to stencil them too. Do you think that could be pulled off and look okay? Thanks for sharing at Cap Creations.

  16. This is a very sweet chair and your tutorial was very well done! Don't you just love that ASCP?!

    I don't usually do this, but I think you might enjoy a peek at my craft room http://www.househoneys.com/craft-room-makeover/. I found you on Creative Bloggers. It's not what I posted, but I think you'll like my new sewing machine if you're a sewer (not sure if you are).
