Workbench Wednesday ~ Before and Done For Now

Here's a quick round-up of what I've been working on lately.

Did you know there is a direct correlation between how much you paid for something and how much time/material expense you'll have to put into it? I can vouch. This here's a keeper, but man, it's gonna need some work. (That's stripes of hot glue you see on the first layer of fabric--discovered after ripping off the top layer of forest green floral fabric). These (there are two) were donated to the cause for sanity (mine) by Kacie B. which I appreciate SO much! When I used to work at a feline clinic, friends would drop off kittens. Now they drop off furniture!

Another pair of DARLING children's chairs from the 1960's. Got them for a song as they really need some sprucing up.

It's "TRAVEL" month at the shop this month, so off to Paris went this vintage train case. Not sure if it's finished. What else could I add to it?

And just for something fun, I tried making these paper feathers (shown back and front below). There's a cute 'tute at Todolwen - Old To New. I want to alter them some how or add text--still thinking on these.

What's on your craft table today? Leave a comment and let me know!
