summertime always reminds me of time to relax, slow down and enjoy life .. i love early summer in texas .. everything seems alive .. the days are warm and sometimes downright hot .. and the evenings are still cool enough to enjoy a little quite time on the front porch ..
here are some pics of gliders and army cots i have transformed for placement on those big front porches the south is known for ..
this is a metal porch glider that required cushions .. i covered new foam cushions and pillows in a cath kidston rose print fabric .. and placed a mosquito net over the setting ..
another glider that required new foam cushions - i like working with this style of glider - i used a vintage blue and off white ticking stripe i had - you can't really see it in the photo, but the front skirt is scalloped at the bottom ..
this glider i covered in a french style fabric i purchased at a close-out ..
this one i covered in an old awning stripe fabric .. i try to keep the gliders in their original state as best i can .. i have never repainted the gliders, though i have had to re-work the springs a time or two ..
this one i used an old plaid patchwork fabric mixed with crisp white eyelet cutwork tablecloths that were about to be discarded .. i used vintage tablecloths to make the accent pillows ..
a folding army cot dressed with pillows, comforter, throw and mosquito net .. i love doing this to army cots ..
another cot i dressed .. and actually, it was the first cot i dressed and it was so well received that i continue to do this whenever i find those old folding army cots .. its a great look and people always seem to get excited when they see one ..
i thought i would throw in a pic here of a mosaic collage i did on an old mirror i had .. the mirror was one of those old buffet mirrors with the rounded top .. the frame work had some damage and to disguise it i added seashells and pieces of pottery i had .. the cockatoo is an old stangl piece ..
enjoy the day and thank you for keeping us in your thoughts ..
