This gorgeous pineapple pillow is made by Ingrid from Wood Wool Stool. Ingrid creates the most beautiful things, which you can find in her Etsy shop. Good news for those who can crochet and who also would like a pineapple pillow on their sofa: the pattern is available in the Wood Wool Stool shop (in English and Dutch). If only I could crochet…

DIY PROJECT: OLD CHAIR MAKE-OVER

I love the make-over of this pair of old chairs! The original blue paint at the end of the legs was grinded away and left bare. The rest of the chairs were then painted in a beautiful matt black color. You can find old/vintage chairs in thrift stores or on sites such as Craigslist (US) and Marktplaats (Netherlands). I believe that the chairs used in this project are Thonet chairs.
