Covered my head

Well the yard sale is over and sold a lot of little things gave away a french provincial desk minus any drawers. I just had $5.00 on it and it didn't sell so I put it on the curb.It's gone
I had wanted to stay home all day and just piddle so I planted a few more flowers and then started painting a chair I am going to put back in my bedroom.

This is only part of the before picture , it was a wood looking before and then this green striped seat.
I had it in my bedroom for about 2 years now going to paint it , I have to many projects sitting around, anyway this is just primer on it

  I got the primer on the seat also and let it dry all afternoon.
No finished picture like everyone else shows LOl
I have some very light light blue I think I will paint it because I have a blue & white toile in my bedroom. Once I thought of a metallic gold ! ? I will show a finished picture when I get it finished

Then I went to work covering a wig head , I used glue and water ,decoupage glue

 It was so nice outside today I put my patio umbrella up and just stayed outside just about all day


little to close for a good picture. I tore up a Trader Joe's grocery sack to use . I was going to use music sheets but then seen this sack in one of my paper drawers


you would think I have nothing to do to take the time to play with this project LOL I did 4 loads of laundry and hung them out on my clothes line before I started this . I love to hang clothes outside to dry

    this is the seat of the chair with primer , yes a material seat
I will make up my mind what color to paint it and let you know, suggestion are always welcome

I just love those Trader Joe's grocery sacks when I go to the  St Louis store I always ask for extra sacks

Now I had a nice lady come to my yard sale , Peggy and she ask me to take a look at her Pinterest page so I am going to do that tomorrow at work, I have the best job I can surf the Internet all day . I answer a phone and just transfer people all day long so in between calls I read blogs, it's OK  per my boss. Best job I ever had , not pay wise LOL

  5. You do keep busy lady bug. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  6. I like the way the wig head is turning out. I have a doll head I am thinking of doing something similar with. What kind of glue did you use?

    1. I am at work and can't look at the bottle but I think it's Mod Podge glue, in a white plastic bottle bright orange lettering . I have 2 more heads to cover

  7. Hi! I am your newest follower. I live in Mid Mo too! I think we may even live in the same city, Columbia? Can't wait to read your older blogs. I hope you will come visit me at my blog. Have a great week!

  8. Lovely chair and the covering the head idea is wonderful. Lots of creativity going on here.

  9. Hello Janice:
    Your chair is absolutely wonderful and if, when finished [please do show pictures!] you find that you do not want it in your bedroom, then please ship it at once to Budapest where it will look magnificent in our drawing room!!

    Would that we had half of your creative talent. The wig head is transformed - we could do with several of these too!!

    Thank you so much for the comment which you left on our latest post and to which we have replied. Through it we have discovered and followed you and will much look forward to staying in touch.

  10. Love the chair and the covered head! Thank you for sharing your projects at the OHP.

  11. Love the should send a photo to Trader Joes and tell them "I'm Head'n to Trader Joe's!" Hahaha....great way to use their sacks. Love that store too.

    Thanks for sharing
    Big hug
    Elizabeth :-)

  12. How clever to cover that wig head. I think the options are endless, please share the others when they are finished. I also like that you are painting the fabric seat.

    Thanks for sharing at my Bunny Hop!
