Well, happy, happy Monday morning to you! I hope you had a fantastic and relaxing weekend!
Last night, I started working on the tutorial for reupholstering the wingback chair.
Phew! It’s gonna be a doozy!! I had high hopes that I’d be done by this morning, but after a couple of hours weeding through and editing photos, and then realizing that I wasn’t even halfway through the photos, I decided that that was an unreasonable goal. Maybe I’ll have it for you tomorrow, but I’m certainly not making any promises this time!!
So I decided to put that aside for the time being and look through the projects that were linked up on Friday’s link party. I’m always so thrilled to see everyone’s creativity (and I’m trying to get better about commenting!!), but one project literally made me gasp. I couldn’t stop looking at it, and mulling over all of the details…and the possibilities for my own similar project. Can you guess which one it was?
It was this MASSIVE butterfly from Lucy Design!!!
She said the butterfly measures a whopping 4 feet wide!! WOW! Talk about a statement piece…AND a conversation piece. And of course I love that the body is made of a staircase spindle.
But look at all of this other stuff she added…
It’s a whole mixed bag of textural goodness…keys, hinges, picture frame moulding, washers, wood pieces and smaller spindly bits.
I love it. I simply love it…everything from the details, to the size, to the brushed metallic finish. I think my absolute favorite part just might be what she used for the eyes. So creative!!
Head over to Lucy Design for more info if you’d like to make your own…or if you’re just curious about the details.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
