THE HOME OF CASUAL ELEGANCE. A PLACE WHERE IT IS BELIEVED, IF YOU CAN'T WASH IT OR LIVE ON IT, IT IS NOT WORTH HAVING.

FOR THE LOVE OF A FRIEND

THIS CHAIR CAME TO ME THROUGH CRAIGSLIST.  IT HAD BEAUTIFUL TAPESTRIES OF A COUPLE DANCING.  AS I WAS UNLOADING IT FROM MY CAR, I THOUGHT OF A GOOD FRIEND THAT STRUGGLES WITH BACK PAIN.  SHE CURRENTLY SITS IN AN OLD OFFICE CHAIR,  NOT THE MOST STYLISH SEATING FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM. I ASKED HER TO COME AND LOOK AT IT AND SHE LOVED IT.  MORE IMPORTANTLY SHE SAID THAT IT WAS WONDERFUL FOR HER BACK.  I TOLD HER THAT THIS CHAIR MUST BE MEANT FOR HER.

CHAIR BEFORE


CHAIR AFTER.
  I WAS ABLE TO SALVAGE THE TAPESTRY ON THE BACK OF THE CHAIR AND USE IT FOR THE FRONT. 

I REALLY NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IN MY WORK PACE.  IT WAS SURPRISING TO ME HOW FAST YOU CAN WORK WHEN YOU ARE MAKING SOMETHING FOR  SOMEONE YOU LOVE.  THIS GAL MEANS THE WORLD TO ME AND I HOPE THAT SHE LOVES THIS CHAIR AS MUCH AS I LOVE HER.

Well, I have to say....the light paint makes it so you can see the awesome old embroidery much better! I love the elegance!
