a couple of projects

a couple of projects i’ve been working on around here…

painted a hex sign table.

(ps- i started posting photos on instagram here: instagram.com/madewithlovebyhannah )

i used the same design as my hex sign rug pattern, just modified it a little. i printed it out to the size of the table and traced it on using dressmakers tracing paper and a wheel. that worked great! i have a feeling i will be using that trick pretty often. the hole was there for an umbrella i guess…considered filling it in but then thought it would look pretty cute with a red and white striped umbrella so i left it.

got this cute-shaped upholstered trunk/ottoman thingy at the thrift store a while ago. did a little vinyl applique and added some button accents.

the top was pretty beat up but the rest of the vinyl wasn’t ripped so i just recovered the top and spray painted the rest of it. i used this little box and my honeycake chairs as inspiration.

i like the straw fabric lining the inside

    It’s all great stuff, but you know that already. My nephew Anson is coming next week, and I think we’ll paint the front porch. Any tips on painting straight lines without painter’s tape (that stuff bleeds no matter what).

    thanks kittee! i’m not a fan of painters tape either. i don’t really have any tips. keep a damp rag around to wipe off mistakes quickly! is that a tip? are you painting a pattern on your porch?
