Welcome back to the One Room Challenge, week five. I miraculously got a lot done this week. So let's get to it.
My 14 foot runner arrived from Turkey. It was a ebay purchase and I'm very pleased, I spent $453, including shipping. It's from the 50's and has some nice color combos.
I set out to deal with miss tushy laroo. Remember I wanted to beef up the cushion, make a new box cushion cover and get a throw for the back.
I revamped the seat cushion by taking the cushion core out of its cover and wrapping the innards in some nice thick cotton batting. It then went back into its original case.
I actually find sewing quite relaxing. Weirdo that I am, I like to listen to the local police scanner when I'm working. I don't know why I am fascinated by this, but I am so we can just leave it at that :)
So five hours and many, many crazy antics and arrests later, this is what I accomplished.
First I primed with B-I-N 1-2-3, in a spray can, o so easy.
I gave it a few light coats a few minutes apart with this flat black enamel.
Seeing that this thing had been on the street and all, I rewired the whole thing with some nice covered chord that is now available at my local hardware store and replaced the socket with a pull chain. I just love a pull chain.
So with one week to go, I have still quite a lot to do but mainly I need to restyle the bookcases and perhaps shuffle around some art. Look here for weeks one, two, three, and four.
Head on over to Calling it Home and see all the superb linkers here.
