Antique furniture refurbished

I was blessed with this beautiful pink antique love seat a few months ago and I love it! I knew just where to put the old girl. She had been well taken care of, to my surprise it didn't smell of cat fur or smoke. It was just sitting in someone garage. 
I knew it would go perfectly in my craft room where I needed a place to sit and sew or read a good book ( lol, like I ever have time to do that!) or let my creative juices flow and plan my next projects.

I just had to change one thing...
 the wood was a little too dark to go with my vision for my craft room

So I fixed that!

Bin Primer!

Here is My beautiful love seat, I finished it with antique white.
 

I had these random pillows around so I used them. I want to cover them soon.

 I love sitting and hand stitching things, it's so relaxing.

And My newest hobby, Tea time! I can't help it if I Love Jane Austen Movies. It's such a wonderful invention, hahaha! 
I put Makenna down for a nap and Madie does some silent reading, then I grab my tea pot and a small treat.

I just sit and think, read, rest, pray, plan, rest, etc.

It's amazing!
Thank you England and Jane Austen!
