Like many DIYer's, I love perusing flea markets, antique stores, Goodwill and the list goes on. Shari of Swinging On A Star Creations and I have been doing this together for years. We actually call it "Junk-tiquing". Recently Shari and I visited one of our favorites, Trader Jacks in Pittsburgh.
We tend to look for different things. Shari is an artist extraordinaire and I am tend to look for pieces of furniture that I can restyle. We often spot items for one another and generally share lots of laughs.
Well, on this visit, I spotted this great piece of vintage crewel artwork. It was in perfect shape and a steal at $8!!! Here it sits at my doorway after our wonderful day of junk-tiquing.
Although it was a bit yellowed around the edges, the crewel work was in perfect shape and I just knew it would become a pillow in my family room. Once I removed it from the frame, all I needed to do was press it and find a perfect pillow size insert.
And here it sits in my husband's favorite chair!
