So Shabby Pink - It started in the Garage

Hello all.

The days have been a bit cooler this week, thank goodness. Tomato plants don't like to set new tomatoes when the nights are as warm as they have been. Hope we will have more "normal" temps for awhile. I am really not sure what is normal in Texas though.

We were cleaning out the garage not long ago and like many of you, I have collected things that I just know I will use --- someday and in ---some way. When my husband got serious about cleaning out, I had to really defend my right to keep some of my most prized BIG items. I almost lost these two beautiful old things!

This is an antique bed footboard - I used the headboard in the spare bedroom. Can you imagine him wanting to get RID of it? AH!

I got this door as someone was about to throw it out to the trash! Can you believe that? Look at all that shabby chic charm!

When my husband found out what I wanted to do with these great old pieces, he said, "You want to do what?!" For those of you who like to collect things like this, I bet you have heard those words before too, huh?

He was still asking that question at this point.....

My husband is such a good sport though. Although he was skeptical and was just not liking it as it went together, he kept going. He just focused on the workmanship, I guess, and he really does good work. To tell you the truth, I was beginning to wonder myself if I would like it.

I didn't even know he could do some of the touches he added to this project. He added some arms and routed the edges.

He still kept going....

Okay! Now there is somewhere to actually sit! At this point, this bench project became his own. He got sooooooo particular and fussy over everything being just right. I gladly just stood back and let him be in charge!

I don't even know how many coats of paint he meticulously put on this thing.

Ater putting in a seat, routing edges, adding trim and lots of paint, it is ALMOST finished.

This pretty quilt will do for now but I think I will use some foam and make a softer seat. I have some ornamental embellishments to add and some distressing to do and then it will be perfect.
Thanks for stopping by today. We are adding some new One of A Kind items so hope you will come by So Shabby Pink and look around.
Have a fun weekend!
