I have painted the interior of my house for years. I have wanted stripes for a very long time but would never take the time it requires. Well....I finally decided to tackle it and so glad I did. I first had to strip all the wallpaper that had been up for 15 years. Then all the marking & taping took forever. I didn't like the first result so I waited a couple of weeks and tackled it again. I do love the end result. My goal was to create enough pop in the room for the "wow" factor without spending the money on new countertops. I think I pulled it off.

Cockpit Cushions for "Starship" our sailing buddies Dan & Jamie needed cockpit cushions for their 30 years ago they were made. Needless to say they were shot........tears, zippers broken, just plain nasty. Jamie decided to have me make new ones for Dan's birthday yesterday. WHEW! Turned them around in 5 days! These were made out of naugahyde fabric. Here are the photos.....enjoy!
