"Home Made" Christmas

I know this doesn't involve furniture but wanted to share with you all some of my crafting skills. I have a four year old daughter that loves everything Ballet! I think that's the only thing she dresses up in. :)
So for Christmas I decided I would make her some tutu's. So I bought all of the material which came to maybe $10 and went to work and this is what I came up with. Let me know what you think!

Great How To Videos

When I started learning how to upholster and paint furniture I pretty much had to teach my self and I wish I had found this website months ago because I know this would of helped answer questions I had and help with some of the mistakes I've made learning. If you are interested in learning I would watch and check out this website DIY Upholstery Supply

Seat Cushions

These were done for a client that needed new seat covers and cushions. The original foam were 1" - 1 1/2" and wanted something more comfortable, so I went with a 2" foam. I love the results and they are super comfortable to sit on. Let me know what you think!

P.s. One is missing because I'm still working on it.

Second Side Table

Here is the Second side table. I had some issues with the top and then everything finally clicked and I was able to finish. Here is the before and after.

Need some opinions!

I just got done making this pillow for my chair that I'm trying to sell. My question is this, Should I keep the pillow this size or should I go smaller?
I like it this size because it give some balance to the big chair. Anyway, comments about my pillow would be great!

Esspresso color Coffee Table

Here is the coffee table to the previous post! Did the same thing as previous. Can't wait to get pictures of it at her home.

Side Table

This project is for a client of mine that has two side tables and wanted a change. She noticed on my blog that I've done projects with the glazing technique and also the distressed look. So we did the best of both and this is what I came up with.

So if you can see on the after photos I did a black glaze to give it some character and then distress the edges & legs. Comments would be wonderful. Stay tuned for the coffee table that matches.
