5..........4..........3..........2..........1

OK folks, here it is... my first blog post! I have been wanting to do a blog for a while and have been putting off getting started. So at 11PM here I sit instead of being on the treadmill, I am blogging! Be patient, it might take some time to get it slicked up around here! I have much more talent when it comes to tangible projects!

Well lets start off with a chair redo! On one of my treasure hunts I saw this out dated, forest green check chair for $4. It was very sturdy and the foam was in good shape. I thought it was a great deal and would be the perfect size for my daughter's room. It's not a small kids size chair but it's not full size either?? So it was perfect for my growing 7 yr old.

BEFORE




It was at this point when my husband walked through the door! He thought I had lost it when I told him that I had just bought this chair! (Oh, he has no idea what he is in for!)



And here is the AFTER. I didn't get a picture, but it looks cute in my daughters room against her butter yellow walls and bright tropical bedding.
With the trim, fabric and chair this project was a total of $20 and took me an evening to do! Not bad for an nice upholstered chair!

  8. Very nice job. It doesn't look "home made" at all. That chair has a great shape and your really played to it's strengths.

    I also love the vinyl window decals in the post above. Great idea!

  9. Very nice ... would you consider doing a tutorial on how you did it? I'm particularly interested in the welting. I'm assuming you sewed that on a machine as you normally would but then how do you attach it to the chair?
