You know the cursing crafter needs to make an appearance in an FBomb Friday installment!
You will see where my FBomb comes in further down in the post.
I know you're tired of it.
Tired of what?
The never ending projects.
The thing is, I'm just so dang proud of myself, I have to show em off. Not because they look really nice, but because I set out to do it, and I did it.
Here are 3 more projects I finished.
Here is the before picture of my bar stools. I can't find a better one and I could swear I actually took a picture before I re-did em, but I can't find it.
I know. It's kind of a dark picture, but oh well, you get the point.
Since I painted all of my other dining room furniture black, I decided these should be black too. And I may as well re-upholster them while I'm at it.
"May as well." <--- I hate those 3 words. They usually get me into trouble.
Here they are now...
On the chandy beforehand was what looked like flying saucers to me. They were the light shades.
Remember the hammered metal paint?
I decided to fix that garishly gold chandelier once and for all.
My hubs actually painted it because I didn't want to take it down and because he's tall and stuff.
I also used some leftover fabric from the stool re-do and made a cover for the ugly cord and chain suspending the chandelier from the ceiling.
Because I thought about taking pictures of that process and wanted to stab my face off just thinking about more crappy crafty pictures...I didn't.
But here's the finished product. With new non flying saucer shades.
So have you seen these shades? They are regular mini blinds transformed into a roman(ish) shade. I always wanted roman shades.
I called my mom. She's the mini blind expert. And by "mini blind expert" I mean that she can take em apart and put em back together and not mess em up.
Using this tutorial, we created this...
This is the kitchen window.
Trust me, the color is the same on both windows, but the sun coming in the window makes it look different in the pictures. Also I'm a crappy picture taker.
This is what I purchased the fabric for.
The fabric from the store where they lady yelled at us?
There wasn't enough fabric. (insert f-bomb here)
Oh, sure, there was enough if I wanted to cut and sew and cutandsewcutandsewcutandsew. But I didn't want to cut. And sew.
What to do?? I don't wanna go back to the evil fabric store!
Why, I have an idea!! I had 2 queen size flat sheets that were near the same color as the muslin I had originally purchased for this project. I don't have a queen sized bed and I wasn't going to use them so I ripped those babies outta the linen closet and did some mad scientist alterations.
They are definitely big enough to fit these shades without having to cut and sew cutandsewcutandsew.
Now they are transformed into shades.
Not just shades.
Since I'm in a hurry to get this up here to show you all and then run away screaming from crafts, projects, glue, staples, fabric, and anything even relating to a stupid re-dos I'm showing you these before they are really finished.
I mean, yeah, they are finished...
but I will be putting a small valance up at the top of each because otherwise they look too plain. I also will be adding an embellishment of some sort, like ribbon or fringe or some crap.
I guess that's about it.
Except for a ginormously huge thank you to my mom for helping me with these
damn stupid things!
Monday I will show you the bathroom re-do and then I promise no more stupid crafty stuff for a very, very, very long time.
Link your own FBomb up below and have a great weekend, friends!
