I've got upholstery fever!!!

 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. 

ISN'T HE MANLY?  I THINK HE WOULD BE A GREAT FATHER'S DAY PRESENT FOR THE KING OF YOUR CASTLE.





LOOK HOW CUTE SHE IS!!!  PRETTY IN PINK AND ABSOLUTELY NO WEAR AND TEAR ON HER.  SOMEONE LOVED HER VERY MUCH AND I WAS LUCKY TO FIND HER.



THESE GALS ARE NEXT!!! STAY TUNED FOR A HUGE REVEAL.


HAPPY WEDNESDAY!  THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ME AND MY CRAZY PROJECTS!!!
