Hey! Good Monday Morning to you! My weekend weather started out great and ended up kind of cold, so I decided to finish up a project or two. I must say that I am so excited about this re-purpose, up-cycled chair!!!! Girl Squeal!
A week or so ago I came across this chair.
It had such great bones, but the ichy-est fabric. EVER. I had seen a lot of re-upholstery tutorials using drop cloths and was intrigued. Perfect time to try it, right? However, I am not a big fan of the trend of using white furniture everywhere in my house. I love it in YOUR home, just not in mine. You see, I have a dog, a cat, kids, a husband and well…me! I can’t even wear a white shirt or pants without permanently destroying it. No way was I doing an all “white” chair!! OK..I KNOW that drop clothes aren’t really white, but close enough. So I thought that using two fabrics would shake it up enough that I might not mess it up too badly.
I found a great black and white houndstooth that was perfect! A drop cloth – washed and bleached a couple of times, some trim and a lot of sweat equity and this was my finished project:
I am so in LURVE!!! All business in the front…
And..A Party in the back!
I love it so much that I have kinda changed my mind about the new sofa I have been searching for. Yup, I am thinking of a tan linen color. Gasp! I know… kind of close to white but still dark enough that hopefully I can’t mess it up too badly.
