Handmade for HGTV | Chair Feathers

The change to the cooler season always signal having a few more textures. Fur,velvet, cashmere and yes feathers! Warm hued feathers for the Fall, black ones for Halloween and gold, white or silver for winter and the holidays. So, you can make feather wreaths, spruce up vases with hints of feathers or why not dress up a chair’s derierre with feathers? We outfitted this vanity chair with ruffle feathers for the Handmade for HGTV series. Check out the how-to and see how easy it is to make this.

I couldn’t make these projects possible without these people: my super amazing assistant, Rachel and this wonderful and talented photog who pretty much dabbles in everything, James. This is his lovely home by the way!

How about a DIY weekend making some feather chairs. The link is here and check out our other Handmade for HGTV projects.

Handmade for HGTV | Gatsby Tray

Woop! Woop! It’s Friday everyone, although every day should be a fun day, Friday and the weekends seem to signal more excitement, no? Here’s another installment of our Handmade for HGTV series. I know, I know, for some of you, the sound of  crafting doesn’t sound sophisticated or the sound of DIY makes you cringe. But, mind you there’s been several studies that crafting and doing DIY’s exercise our brain, makes our creativity flourish and eventually helps us deal with the stressors of everyday life. Call me preachy Priscilla at this moment, ha! Totally kidding.

Our next installment is about making a Gatsby-inspired vanity tray. After all, shouldn’t your boudoir be a little more glam? Then Art Deco is the way to go? It’s all in the details. Here are your materials:
