My dad salvaged these really cool antique feet from an old dresser. They are pine and covered in chipping paint, which gives them a great aged patina. He used them to create a custom ottoman that my mom and I covered in burlap. The tiny ruffle on the bottom is made from a drop cloth and attached using decorative nail heads. I just think it is so darling! The dimensions are 12″ x 19″ and 13″ tall. The item is available for purchase just click the buy it now button and pay securely through paypal. We are asking $149 including shipping to anywhere within the continental US.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. My mom and I offer furniture painting services, simple upholstery, and custom slipcovers.
We have been painting furniture for clients for over a decade now. The two of us have been sewing our whole lives. We've sewn things like prom dresses and bathing suits, but back in 2008 we decided to focus our seamstress abilities on home decorative items; specifically custom made slipcovers.
I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services.
