~ Really Shabby Lampshade ~
Finally finished this lampshade...it has been off the lamp waiting for some attention for months. My Mom and Dad gave me this lamp when they moved. I stripped off the original shade cover leaving the fabric wrap on the wire part of the shade frame. I tore 3" wide strips from thin white linen and tied them around the frame. How easy is that! It is so nice to have two weeks off and getting a few projects completed.

~ theatre seating made shabby ~
My buddy Bill reconstructed the theatre seats for me several years ago. Bill was a retired agriculture teacher and had a wood shop in downtown Anna. He has since passed on. He was a good guy and a great family man and teacher. Finally decided to paint the oak seats. Is it written somewhere not to paint oak...I feel so guilty...LOL.
Three new projects
Little bedside table with vintage marble top. Primed and ready for some shabby paint.
My daughter insisted I buy this vintage telephone chair for $10.00 at Round Top. Now to take the cushion off the frame and give it some character.
I've had this table forever. I took the top tier off and shelled it to be used as a lamp base. This piece will be primed and painted.
Am I the only one having problems with writings appearing after the pic? Any suggestions?
