Meet Kimm from REINVENTED

Greetings Vintage Restyled fans! My name is Kimm and I blog at REINVENTED.  There I wax poetic about home decor for real people with real stuff and small real budgets.

I am thrilled to be here with all of you wallowing in jealousy while Shannon is on vacay.

Shannon is my furniture restyling idol.  I thought about sharing a furniture project with you all today, but my mediocrity would have slapped us all in the face.

So I made a table runner.   A no-sew one.  It's springy, but is still in tune with my cottagey/farmhouse/whimsical with a little touch of industrial home.  style confusion, anyone?

I did a little applique with some fabric I had on hand.  The base is canvas drop cloth.  I had some red striped ticking fabric from PB, some brown with cream polka dots and some aqua upholstery fabric leftover from a bench project.
 

I do have a sewing machine and am marginally proficient at using it, but the Buckeyes were on TV so this had to be a coffee table project. 

I glued a hem all around the drop cloth, traced the flower shape and the center, free-hand cut the leaves and used the same fabric glue to attached it all.

Easy peasy lemonade squeasy.  Aren't you ready for lemonade season too? 

Clearly, I did not break out the iron.  I'm still working on a centerpiece, so that will be a post for another day.

And I'll keep practicing painting furniture until Shannon agrees to take me on as her apprentice.

Have a great day everyone!  Come by REINVENTED and visit anytime!

Isn't Kimm fabulous?  She is quite the DIYer and does everything. Of course she does all this with 4 kids a full time job and a start-up biz as well!  Where she finds time is still a mystery.

Be sure to check out her blog, she has terrific projects!

Thanks again Kimm for entertaining and inspiring all of us!  I will return tomorrow!

Til then-
XO-
