Don’t you think hollyhocks scream put me in a farmhouse cottage garden.


When I think about farmhouse cottage gardens and the flowers used to create the ultimate All-American garden looks I think hollyhocks. Not all of us are fortunate enough to live in an area capable of growing these fun whimsical cottage flowers and that is why I decided to paint hollyhocks and frame them in this wonderful shabby chic frame. I even added a few hollyhocks on the corner of the frame. It is easy to hang or comes ready to perch up on the table or shelf. Every time I look at this painting it reminds me of the garden I had created in NJ. I hope it brings back happy memories for you.

Painted Farmhouse Furniture Vintage Cottage Chic Chair Wildflowers

Painted Farmhouse Furniture Vintage Cottage Chic Chair Wildflowers

Painted Farmhouse Furniture vintage cottage chic wooden chair with Windsor style back, turned spindles, along the back of the seat are wildflowers painted in pinks blues and cream. The chair is from the 1940 to 1950 range and I did the painting around 1990.

I discovered this gem in a barn. After cleaning it up and gluing some spokes I sanded and stained it a warm earthy brown. The border is added only along the back and a polyurethane varnish was applied. The chair is in wonderful condition and great for an accent chair. Palette: warm brown stain, pink, cream, blue, leaf green.

I have to be honest it is not a sturdy chair but is good for kids and sitting looking pretty. I used it to stack books on and an occasional table since the seat is flat. I love this chair and have displayed it in my shop and home with every thought of keeping it. Now it is time to say good bye.

Heart Pillow Hand Painted Fabric Farmhouse Cottage Chic Fairy Wish Grow

A hanging painted fabric cottage heart pillow complete with a fairy wish to grow. The painted fabric pillow is simple farmhouse chic decor.

Comes with a simple inspiring word ‘grow’ and enchanted fairy magic . The pillows are hand sewn and slightly stuffed, made of cotton canvas painted with acrylic paints and ink and heat sealed. Attached is a natural wool heavy yarn. This pillow the fairies picked spring fresh colors of pinks blues lavender and sage green ( that matches the wool). On the back of this pillow is a field thistle.

Size of pillow: 9″l x 5.5″w x 1.5″d.

Though the fairies inspired the making of these new pillows the style is influenced by my love of farmhouse cottage chic. Hang the pillow on a door knob or nail or the knob of a dresser to remind you to keep growing. Age should never stop anyone from remembering to grow.

The Painted Cottage Home

My imagined painted cottage.

I have decided to retire this domain name and revert it back to https://thepaintedcottagehome.wordpress.com. If you like my blog please come to http://betweentheweeds.com and follow me there. I am still all about painted furniture furnishings and artwork mixed with a bit of I hope sage wisdom. I simply found myself repeating my work and words which took me away from enjoying my life and my work.

Hope you come and stay for a while…

Many thanks,

Laurie

New Painted Furniture in Between The Weeds Etsy Shop


I have just finished two new pieces of distressed farmhouse style furniture and they are now in Between The Weeds. Maybe it is the cold air or the season that inspired me to add black distressed rubbed finishes to the line of farmhouse decor and furniture to the shop. I figure not everyone may want flowers and vines on their furniture. I used re-purposed wood and mixed in some new wood made them look well-worn and offer them at an affordable price. I have always adored black distressed finishes because they are versatile and forgiving (the finish that is). I have several new designs being finished up so stay tuned to see what is new.

Jewelry added to my Etsy shop Painted Cottage Home.


I have added a few pieces of vintage jewelry to my Painted Cottage Home shop. With the kids back to school and life starting to flow towards vintage and stocking the shelves for the seasons ahead I thought it is a perfect time to share my new finds. The first piece is a wire spring pearl bracelet (no they are not real pearls) but are they not the prettiest shade of creamy pink? The cuff style bracelet is very comfortable and will fit most women’s or young lady’s wrist. They are in perfect condition and I think they are from the 1950′s so they are not antique but oh so vintage. Check them out at my shop Painted Cottage Home today.
