That ugly, blue little hamper received a beautiful makeover. When I saw the little hamper, I instantly had a shabby vision. My mom, on the other hand, did not. Now, my mom has her eyes on it! Sorry, mom, it's mine - all mine. I've decided that my lovely, little hamper will now store my outdoor linens instead of dirty clothes. It's too good for dirty, stinky socks.
My original shabby vision was just to paint it pink and add some pink pom-pom trim to it. Well, it didn't go as planned, so I had to rethink this project. But maybe it was meant to be because this is way better than I planned. So, my dear friends, this is what it looks like now. Ta da - what do you think?
It was quite fun to do except for the tufting (it was my first time tufting too), but I couldn't quite escape the painting as I was hoping to. Anyhoo, I thought of adding some trim to it afterwards, but I think it would be overly froufrou for a hamper. I think the beautiful fabric alone is enough. The only thing left to do to this hamper now is to add handles on the sides. I haven't decided whether I want gold or cream colored handles, but I'm leaning towards cream.
Well, on to my next project. One down, zillions more to go. I'm going to post my next SP project in the next day or two.
I'm a mother of two exuberant boys. I spend most of my time with my boys; however, when I get a chance, I love to create, decorate, collect, and run. My goal is to create a romantic home and live a beautiful life, but also I want to share my creative visions. I love thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales for a great bargain & that exciting find. I am froufrou! I love things french, soft, pink, vintage, and feminine. I've also taken up a new love: running. I can't wait to share my running experience with you too.
