No One Here?

The furniture is mostly from 1995 and the cupboard is my 2nd attempt at furniture construction from scratch.   My first attempt is downstairs.   I need to find the original master bedroom furniture.   The chair at the back and next to the stairway well was from my grandmother.   It's much older than 1946. My grandmother had things for a little girl but I was the first one and only one in a long time.   Chairs have been reapholstered with pretty yellow silk ribbon.   Did she do that?   She wasn't a sewer. Underneath the silk ribbon is something red but that ribbon is sewed down tight and I like it too much to disturb it.   The table next to the bed came from Grandma too but not as old?

I made the Amish bedspread.  The throw rug was printed off the internet.   Maybe I'll change it to a real one some time.

  1. Love the chair! What type of ribbon is on it? From the picture it looks like there is a design in it, not plain.
