IMPRESSIVE

My very first, very talented client recently sent me these pictures.  She made this fabulous slipcover herself.  She made is from a drop cloth and believe it or not, it only took her 1.5 hours to make. 
She has four side chairs and two arm chairs.  I stopped by yesterday to check it out in person and she already had another side chair and one arm chair almost completed.  I was impressed, to say the least!
I hope she's ready to sew some more, because I warned her I will be sending customers her way. 
If you are in the market for simple slipcovers, e-mail me and I will hook you up with her. 


Speaking of impressive DIY projects, you must hop on over to Evolution of Style and check out the project Jenny is tacking in her kitchen.  This girl certainly is not afraid of a challenge. 

Here' s a sneak peek:


One more DIY project I was completely impressed with recently is this creative and inspiriting idea from Courtney, at A Thoughtful Place.   She wrote the lyrics from her wedding song on a wall in her home.  Brilliant!



I always told my children when they were toddlers not to write on the wall, but I am dying to try this at my house.  There is a wall on our second floor landing that just might be the perfect spot.  I am thinking a prayer or perhaps a lovely poem about them growing up would be fitting. 
Great, something else for my "To Do List".  

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.  Monday I'll fill you in on what I have been working on lately.
