Fabric wall art and DIY Chair

Hello, Friends
Here are a few projects I worked on this week. I recovered this message board, with a orange Damask fabric. I have a thing for damask print right now, its just lovely!
Fabric message board
Cut fabric to size and hot glue it around the board.
Make sure to tuck the corners nicely. 
I can use this as a message board or as a fabric wall art, but I decided I am going to use this as wall art. I have something else I am going to add to this piece, so this project is to be continue. : )

I decided I want a wall of plates, so I started off with these plates for right now. I will be shopping around for some more plates to add to this wall. This project is to be continue. : )
I added my wall art with another piece to my kitchen counter. I am always in my kitchen and I enjoy looking at these two pieces everyday. These are powerful words! 
Last weekend I went to three yard sales and I found this lovely chair. Yes, its ugly, but will be lovely soon. I just wanted to show you the before. This chair looks rough! I need to decide what color I am going to paint it, before this weekend. Any ideas my dear bloggy friends? I love your comments and I live for them. : - ) So, drop me a line.

I am so glad I am able to cross things off my list as the holidays are fast approaching. I love this time of year, because I am able to gather with my family and friends and make beautiful memories. I love for my photos this year to look different from last year, hence this is why I am changing things around. I have four weeks to finish all my projects and I should be done. I am so glad you stop by and remember I LOVE comments. Have a Bless day! 



  1. Great site, Vanessa. I love your idea of the fabric covered message board. It just inspired me for a message board that I need in my little office corner of my kitchen!
    I'm also very much into crafts, sewing and knitting.
    If you get a chance, I have two sites you could visit. So glad we met on FB.

  9. Beautiful fabric, Vanessa. That is going to be just lovely. Also like that chair -- great bones. You gave me an "AHA" moment with your plate wall. I have been wanting to do some black & white somewhere in my home, but just wasn't sure where. Now I know, but I'm not spillin' the beans!
