This is a mission couch I upholstered for Ray of minibuilder on etsy.
His work is so incredible.
I used to work in an antiques shop and after a while, your hand knows what the good stuff is by the way it feels in your hand.
Fine glass, you can tell when you hold it, same with fine china. A strand of real pearls, I'll never forget the first time I held a strand of real pearls, I absolutely know why women love them so much! ;)
That is the same with handling one of Ray's creations. Fine detailing and craftsmanship, this couch feels so good in your hand.
I love this fabric, it looks like aged leather in 1/12th scale.
Last time I looked, it wasn't in his shop yet, but, I'd keep an eye out for it. It's a wonderful compliment to the mission chair and ottoman he has in his shop now.
Not many trick or treaters this year. :(
Could have been the damp weather.
Hope you have an enjoyable Halloween. :)
Oh, some funny thoughts before I go. What unusual things turn up in your work room? This week, I had a pot lid and a large bread knife in my studio. Hubby was afraid to pick up the pot lid, he thought there might be a mouse trapped under it. Not!
The pot lid was a template for a circle to make a pattern for a table cloth. By the way, did you know most plates are around 10" in diameter? I needed a nine inch circle.
The bread knife, I used to shave down a piece of half inch foam into a piece of 1/4" foam. Not an easy task I tell you. ;)
Alright, until next time! :)
