Just Waiting

I hate waiting. I get so impatient when I can't find the things to finish items of my Ghost Furniture. Here's some pieces waiting with me.

Waiting for a Wine Table to for this ornate wine bottle holder, goblet and a bunch of fabric grapes that the lovely Constance made from a picture of my favourite marble ones, I bought in Rome - isn't she clever.

Waiting to go to the upholsterer. I experiment before I send them off and this beauty is being covered in black canvas which will be handpainted in copper.
Isn't that existing fabric hideous?

Waiting for some room. This Art Deco drinks cabinet has all sorts of weird and wonderful drawers and swivelly things inside and it is massive. I need to clear my workshop of some work in progress to finish with this one. The 1930s steel champagne cocktail glasses (is there such a thing?) and cocktail shaker will be fixed to the top.

Waiting for me to be inspired. I wake nights thinking what I can do with this. I bought it because I loved the shape but now I'm stumped.

These are genuine Lurashell Chairs covered in their original bright orange fun fur (well worn). When I find the right fabric to cover these two I will be a happy person. I've had them for a year and a half so don't hold the front page. Whoever buys them can have the original covers also.

I know what you mean about waiting for things - I hate it! I use a framer who does excellent work, but he cannot finish a single thing in less than a month. It's just infuriating! Can't wait to see these great ideas of yours come to fruition. xoxox

Love seeing the befores!
Just wait till the Ghosts put down their razz~ma~taz!! Watch out world!

Isn't amazing what a nice few yards of fabric can do to an old chair???

I think those 2 chairs would look amazing in a creamy white leather...

What memories,

I worked for Lurashell in the 60's as their telephonist, and modelled their Apollo chair, getting into magazines!

Wonderful memories,
