There’s a Post, Here’s a Post?

Okay, so I’ve been thinking about how I actually want to set up this webpage.  Part of me says, “Lindsay, be business-minded.  Put all your services offered and leave it at that.”  The other part of me says, “No way!  That’s not FUN!” So, I think I’d like to see if I can include ya’ll a bit more.  I’m thinking posts of current projects, furniture I’m thinking about, maybe even a “how-to” once in a while… and PICTURES! Always pictures!  ‘Cuz what’s fun about just a bunch of words about how something LOOKS?  Eyeballs up here, Missy!

I’ll start with one of the projects that got me the most excited. This was a fabulous set of chairs that belonged to a friend of mine, who had inherited them from her grandmother. My friend (a beautiful soul who was willing to take a chance with this newbie!) had picked out an equally fabulous nubby teal fabric to use! (You might as well know now, teal and aqua are my favorite colors, so plan to see it around here, a lot!) Meet Charlie: DSC05336

Charlie’s the dog, not the chair.

Let’s call the chair Charlie, anyway!  So then.. here’s Lucy:

Ha! You see what I did there? Charlie and Lucy?  Heehee… erm… ahem… Anyway, I was so excited to start, I forgot to snap a pic of Lucy before I took the legs off.  (And I just noticed you can totally see some of my other projects in the works in the background!  Stay tuned for updates on those!)  Charlie and Lucy had been loved very much, but they needed some new fabric and foam to usher them into the newest generation.

Wanna see them now? Heeeeeeeers… CHARLIE!

And here’s Lucy! (Including her legs!)

In reality, they’re the same color, but I told you I hadn’t entirely figured out this tech thing!  Want one last look of them side-by-side? (Because I know you’re totally scrolling up and down and up and down!)

My first post! Kinda…

So… I really did write a post when I first made the website live – really, I did.  It was super late, and I was tired, but excited. I thought I had written something rather witty (or as witty as one can be at 2am… ahem.) Turns out I am SO not a techie! I love working with my hands. I prefer working with my hands. See the stuff I’m much more familiar with?

Upholstery-ToolsUpholstery is a good match for talents such as these. I hope you’ll all be patient with me as I figure out how to Tech in this new-to-me hands-on world of upholstery and painted furniture!
