If you have followed my blog, you may remember my last post. I was telling you about my stash of mid century Christmas decor that had somehow taken over my basement (and my life).
I have finally started to get productive down there and now have several things made for the shop, Ebay and my Etsy store. A few burns, scratches and sore neck muscles later, I have some things done.
Here is a little peek:
I remodeled some sad looking cardboard houses.
I just love this little red suitcase. I picked it up at an estate sale (full of early 1960’s Barbie/Ken stuff) and knew it would be great revamped for Christmas since it was lined with that white and silver star paper!
I am IN LOVE with this aqua and pink wreath. It matches my office 🙂 I may end up keeping it.
This red and gold one is Hubbys favorite:
For those who want an 70’s Alpine feel:
50’s red and green:
Angel and Stars:
Some little odds and ends:
I made some little vignettes in these old wooden cutlery boxes:
And just so you won’t think I have been too busy to thrift, what do you think of my mid-century chair? It was $8 at a Consignment shop where I sell.
I am guessing it was an office/reception room chair. I plan to spray paint the metal black and recover it. I love the legs 🙂
Here is the back:
Does anyone have any idea what this would have been covered in originally? I am guessing some type of vinyl with piping.
Stay tuned for more crafty projects. I better get back down there. You know it is only 14 weeks until Christmas!
