I Make My Own Appliques

I've been meaning to paint my kitchen chairs and table for ages ...


Here...I finally painted my kitchen chairs with antique white and recovered the cushions with the same rooster printed fabric as my kitchen window valence that I made.



As many of you know I've been transforming our home to a shabby chic and I've been painting endlessly for furniture reformations and accessorize the furniture using appliques. Also I mentioned in my previous posting that I make my own molds and cast appliques.

I realized that it cost me more money on appliques than the bargained furniture I purchase so... I decided to learn how to make appliques. Here we go!!! I now proudly make my own appliques for my furniture reformations!!

May I ask how you make your own appliques? Your dining room chairs are gorgeous. I recently painted my chairs that are very similar to yours. I love them. The table is primed and just needs some paint! Love your blog...discovered it a couple of weeks ago and have become a regular lurker!
