So, if you are reading my blog then you probably love that primitive look just like me. I love it when someone can take something brand new and make it look old, distressed and rustic. I am always telling my husband that I would love to have a bigger home just so I can decorate more and more. The good thing about him is that he nods his head and smiles and says "Hopefully someday soon honey." Anyway, I was on a couple websites tonight just looking around and I must say that I love these sites that I found. If you haven't checked out The American Heritage Shop then you should definitely head on over there and take a look at their furniture. Oh, I love their furniture!! Ok, ok, I could probably have one of each (lol). I love the Weatherly Cupboard, The Early Coat Rack, and I am totally in love with the Primitive Candle Cupboard. Below is a picture of the Primitive Candle Cupboard (mustard over black). Isn't it gorgeous!?! Hopefully someday soon I will have one just like it. At least I have a picture and I can slobber over it for awhile (lol). My father in-law is super handy and I know that he could make something very similar, but he isn't real familiar with how to paint it and give it that old primitive look so that is where we run into the issues. Do you know how to give it that look or do you know where I could go to find out how to make it look that way?
Another great site that I have been looking at alot lately is Littlehouse Mercantile. This site is basically dedicated to all these other websites that have folks that decorate with primitives. You gotta check out All Weathered Homes and Home on the Hill to just name a few. Those are some great sites and these homes are just beautiful and very primitive. On the All Weathered Homes website it talks about drying taters or making a tater garland. As you might have seen.... I made a garland with dried green beans also known as leather britches, but I also love the look of the tater garland so I might have to try my hand at that too. I love doing crafty things. So, are there any crafty things that you have done that you would like to share? I would love to hear about them and possibly even try them. So, go ahead and leave me a comment about your crafty primitive ideas. Thanks in advance for sharing & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
