Chair and Hanging Pot Rack

Jane made me to it...

Well no not really but she did inspire me to do something totally new and something I have never done before.
Tada..... I give you hanging pot rack.  I got out my sketch book and a ruler for proper sizing and then began to draw out my design. After that I got out my wire and began bending, curling, and cutting until I got a shape I liked. Then with the help from my husband we soldered the pieces together. Once it was all done I then covered it in paint and added the chain. I think for a first try it turned out pretty good and for a witch and wizard kitchen it will fit in nicely.  I also have some old Chippendale kits I bought a while back and pulled out a chair and couch. Take a poke at the picture if you want a closer look. I found the fabric at Joanns and thought the print was not too big for minis. Since its going to go into my witch/wizard house I wanted it to be a little wonky so I left one leg off and used books to hold it up. I still have some staining to do on it to make the fabric look older and used and I think it needs a throw or maybe those doilies on the arms to give it a older feel. The couch I'll have to post next time as its still in parts ans has no  legs.  I would also like to welcome PrettyMade's Fancy, Eliana, Victoria, Anne and Angeles for following my blog. I really appreciate it.  I do follow all your blogs and enjoy all your mini finds and creations. This week I am going to try to finish the couch and put my poor mini kitchen back together again. I decided to move things around in there and pulled everything out. Now I have pots and pans all over the place. No really I'm not kidding, I even have soup cans in the upstairs bathroom. Please don't tell Verda, so far I have kept her out of there but I'm sure its only a matter of time befire she catches on and yells!  Have a great everyone.

Awesome job on the pot rack! I keep wanting to make these little plant holders from wire..but then i just go off and chase butterflies...

I think you did a "fantabulous" refurbishing also, I have this lovely piece of worn dark red velvet that would look amazing on your chair..err. if I ever find it again in my bins o' plenty =P
