This chair has been an exercise in patience, the bane of my existence and quite frankly, a pain in my derriere!
I purchased it several years back from a yard sale for $10.00 and I loved the lines of it and the vintage feel it possessed. Over the years I've had many dreams, hopes & plans for this little chair but have done nothing with it until my son recently requested he have a chair in is new (made over) bedroom. Finally I would use this chair!
I took it outside and gave it a good sanding.
Painted it in a cream colour and then applied a coat of stain over top.
I used the existing cushions as a template and sewed new slipcovers.
My first set of slipcovers were just too big so I had to rip out all my stitching and start from scratch. I started and stopped and restarted this sewing project several times over the past few months ~ each session ending with me more frustrated then the last.
I am so happy I am done this project because I wasn't feeling the love.
I am feeling the LOVE about my upcoming Christmas Giveaway! I have been carefully putting together some items that should help get us all into the spirit of Christmas!
Stay Tuned ~ Cheers~
