I loved the lines on this chair, but I was a little nervous on how it might turn out.
Luckily, I LOVE IT!!!
Sturdy, but lacking

Soft yellow with distressed wood accents

I loved this chair from the moment I saw her at a yard sale. She is in meticulous condition! No pets, no smoke and the upholstery is untouched. I was waiting for inspiration on how to "dress" her, and then it came to me.
She deserved to keep a little bit of leg showing. Hey, if you've got them, flaunt them.
And here she is all dressed up. Doesn't she look comfy? She is going to a local decor shop to promote my business. Everyone in blogville, wish me luck!!

I love reupholstering and slipcovering. I think I have found my niche ladies!! You will see painted projects now and then, but I find that my true love is slipcovering and upholstering those unique pieces.
This chair was stuffed with straw!! Doesn't that mean it's really really old?
I pulled off the original upholstery, gave it some new filling and transformed it to today's style.
These guys are for my basement family room. I just slapped some paint on them and called them mine. I do love their shape and I try real hard not to get rid of all the good stuff. Sometimes my husband thinks my goal is to empty the house. Crazy thought, but he does have a point. Anyway, these two are staying with us.
A COUPLE OF FUN FINDS.
