I have been working on a metal chair ripping the covering off. It had a pink cushion on the seat and on the back. Then I had to get all the grime off the metal. It has a great shabby chic look and I wanted to keep that. Today I went looking for some fabric, I went to several stores looking for the right look for the right price and I found this. I think it will look great when I get it finished. Right now I have two chairs and a set of sewing machine drawers all in progress. Will show you the out come of the metal chair hopefully this week. Thanks for stopping by and hope all of you have a wonderful evening.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
