O.K. I admit it, I went over the Shabby, Romantic, Fru Fru edge. Have you ever watched that show "Say Yes To The Dress" on TLC? It is about women picking bridal dresses and it is on Friday nights, well guess who watched it this past Friday? Yep me, so I got up Saturday morning all inspired to cover two little stools.
Sometimes you can go months before you see the perfect little stool to recover, I have been lucky enough to find 4 in the past 3 weeks.
I found two of these little gems for $5.00 a piece.
O.K., I lost my mind, Exhibit one.
This is covered with creme color vintage damask fabric
Then I used fabric from a antique crinoline for the lace overlay.
This is where I got really crazy, I have a gathering foot for my serger sewing machine so I took strips of the lace and ruffled it really tight.
Then nestled in ribbons, flowers, and beads from a vintage necklace.
O.K., I lost my mind in the shabby, fru fru world, Exhibit II
This is a vintage white damask fabric.
I sewed 3 beautiful lace doilies on top
Nestled a vintage brooch into a lace flower.
Added some vintage buttons.
And there you have it romantic, shabby, fru fru gone wild.
I put them in my antiques booth at Orange Tree yesterday and priced them at $38.00, now I wait to see if they sell. I know they are over the top, but I really like them.

O.K. You be the judge, have I gone to far? Can we get to crazy with our shabby, romantic, crafty projects or can you never go to far? Should I stop watching wedding shows?
