X-Bench Makeover!


  This fabulous, Klismos-inspired bench has a new home! It sold at the Merry, Merry Market, a day after it was finished! The happy, greige and white Ikat fabric looks great with the drybrushing technique and an armada of nickel nailheads! But check out what it looked like before: It was a pretty ratty castoff […]

Merry, Merry Market: New Chairs From Old!


The gorgeous white armchairs with the Celtic knot detailing and the Robert Allen fabric in cocoa and orchid sold yesterday at the Merry, Merry Market, and these are the just-finished chairs that took their place in the setup! Don’t you love the Thibault fabric from Hirshfield’s in the geometric lemon, gray and cream chain pattern? […]

Merry, Merry Market Prep: Farmhouse Chairs Get Citified!


Check out the fancy pants on these great chairs! Purchased from a friend whose hoarder tendencies were disrupting the marital harmony in her house, the pair arrived glossy white but not quite perfect. Maybe it was seeing them in their burlap skivvies, but I was inspired to distress them a bit more. Love how it […]

AFTER: The Console That Shines!


Yes, I am painting these last few pieces in the dining room. And yes, I do see that I spilled! That’s a bit of Chelsea Gray, the undercoat for this pretty console with an overcoat of a rockin’ new Metaltech paint from Drew and his crew at the Plaster Center! Remember how it started? The […]

Merry, Merry Market Prep: A Bird in the Hand!


  Another drive-by post while I prep for the market! Thought you’d love to see this framed print of a vintage baking soda card, set against a background of some Orla Kiely print paper. Love the juxtaposition of the vintage and the retro! In the background? Vintage bookplate prints of plumes and birds and other […]

(The silvertone metal pheasant […]

Merry, Merry Market, 2012 Edition!


  It has been an incredibly busy fall for Lark Nest with client work (they are feathering their own nests for winter!) as well as with teaching classes for Hirshfield’s, hosting showers and the Junk Bonanza team dinner, working the Bonanza and the Autumn Splendor Market, doing flowers for a friend’s daughter’s wedding and all […]

Merry, Merry Market Prep: No-Pain Panes!


Just a quick pix to share a closeup of the new Benjamin Moore Molten Metallics paint in a drybrush application over this eight-pane window. This paint is designed to add a hammered metal effect. I was curious to see whether it added dimension when used sparingly in a drybrush application, too. See for yourself… It […]

Merry, Merry Market Prep!


Today was a drizzly, gray day, though it’s all blue skies now. Among the many tasks on my list was prepping several cards of velveteen ribbon into 2- and 3-yard lengths for the Merry, Merry Market coming up Nov. 9-11. It’s a lot earlier this year, in order to represent Thanksgiving as well as the […]
