Here at the studio there is a constant stream of people coming in that are looking to sell me their rustic items when downsizing. Literally not a day goes by that someone doesn’t come through my door with a truck load of goodies that they’ve brought in wanting me to take off their hands!
I guess people assume we do consignment, however that is not the case. Sometimes, I will take a few items if I think I can use them.
Recently I scored an antique metal baby crib for a good price that someone probably had stored in their attic for 30 years and was ready to clear it out!
I started with a 3/4″ piece of plywood, cut to fit on the base of the crib.
A trip to Fabricland and I found some simple indoor/outdoor fabric and some thick 4″ foam.
After gluing the foam to my board I simply covered it with the fabric and used a heavy duty stable gun to fasten it down. Spray glue works best to get the foam to stick to the board.
Finally I put it all together and added some gorgeous Lady Rosedale pillows that I had for sale in the store. These are super quality, super soft and best of all Canadian Made!
Here’s the end result……
Retails for $370 including the pillows, wouldn’t this look terrific on your front porch?
