Yes, my love of burlap continues! I had an old bar stool that really wasn’t very comfortable with the wood seat, so I covered it with a nice, thick padding and my wine print burlap. I used my heavy duty staple gun to attach it. So simple and much more comfy!
I purchased a few jars of Junkie Paint from Candace at Vintage News Junkie and just wanted to share how much I loved this paint! I have used Annie Sloan chalk paint in the past and while I love that as well, the cost makes it difficult to afford my hobby of refinishing furniture. Check out Vintage News Junkie for more info on this paint. My dad picked up this awesome coffee table for me. I neglected to take a before pic but it was a dark cherry wood. I love the legs and beautiful medallion. I gave it a couple coats of Junkie Paint and used a minwax finishing wax. I did distress some areas and love the smooth finish. I also have a beautiful lilac color that I can’t wait to use!
Thank you to Candace from the Vintage News Junkie for the awesome video tutorial on a burlap tree perfect for Christmas decorating! I still have a stash of wine theme print burlap from my curtains so figured I’d make a little cone tree. I painted a cardboard cone silver, as I am decorating this year in silvers, whites and burlap. I wanted a little silver to show through. It fit perfectly on this glass candle holder. I am working on several other cone trees and hope to finish decorating this weekend.

I was browsing Hobby Lobby this past weekend and saw these really cool metal angel wings. I remembered seeing some made out of coffee filters similar to my wreath. I checked Pinterest and Sissie’s Shabby Cottage had one pinned. It used a Dollar Tree sink mat and you basically just cut the mat into the shape wings that you like, then put the filters through the holes.
I fell in love with the beautiful deer silhouette that www.TheRusticPig.com was kind enough to share with us. I followed her tutorial using an old dresser mirror. I did have to prime the mirror first and used 4 coats of chalkboard paint. I also used Annie Sloan paint on both the wood frame and deer.
