Memorial Day Sale at Old South Antique Mall
Old South Antique Mall in Dothan, Alabama is having a sale this weekend. Bobby and I added a couple of new items to our booth there. And, if you are close enough-you might want to go and check it out...the mall is full of fabulous furniture and decorative items-at great prices, regardless of the sale!!! Bobby made this new bench using a spindle full size bed headboard. He added a seat of mitered pine boards and some rope trim, and painted it with a black satin...and of course distressed it a bit to add to the charm. This piece could take the place of a couple of chairs at your farm table...or add a couple of pillows and use it on your screened porch overlooking the lake! I added a 60" loveseat...a second hand piece I am sure you can tell by the "beautiful" shiny blue upholstery...but the piece is clean and the best part-the cushions are a down blend!! It is a classic with the small rolled arms and 4 cushions. Bobby adjusted the seat height a bit to make it more "user friendly". It now has a seat height of a comfortable 19 inches. I made the slipcover of the same natural cotton duck I used for a previous piece. I love this fabric-not too white to fear...but light none the less. I bought a full bolt of this fabric because I thought it would be great in so many applications. It has a background of off white with a few crossthreads of a warm chocolatey gray. A most comfortable loveseat for the price...and easy to clean-simply remove the covers, wash and dry :) Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend...Have a great one!!!!
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
