I bought this from Michael's, with a 50% off coupon, in the beginning of July and just now had time to do it. Stush covered what needed to be covered then I spray painted it black but it was coming out gray looking and I didn't like that! So I painted it black then distressed it where it would have got some wear on it. I put it in the corner of my dining room, I had my sewing machine cabinet there but it was just to big looking and taking up to much room. Now there is such a difference makes the room look bigger!
This stitchery I made a long time ago so I don't have the designer's name, if you know please tell me and I'll give credit:) I haven't used this sampler for years, I just couldn't find it and I knew I hadn't sold it, so where did I find it? Behind another sampler lol, I must have needed the frame for a Christmas one and just covered it up with homespun and the sampler. I don't know what made me look but there it was, the rust colored homespun is from the Ragg Shop, remember those ? That went out a long time ago:)
Here's what I have on top of it, my sewing things are on the inside, neat place to keep everything for stitcheries!
Here is another veiw...
I really like the lamp lit in fact I have it on now but for the picture I had to turn it off because of the glare. I hung the patriotic picture... finally, it just took me a while to find a place for it!
Today I went to the Dollar Tree and ran the register for about an hour and a half, it was easy because I remembered somethings from when I worked there for Christmas. I work Monday and Tuesday 2 to 7 then not until next week do I get more hours but that will soon change with the holidays coming on so very fast it seems!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, it's cooler here in fact we have the AC off so it won't be long till we have to start up the woodstove:)
