The other chair..

Ok so you guys remember my first chair that I rehupholstered. Well I had two of those chairs. The first one I sold on the online classifieds. Well I had someone else like it so much they wanted the other one I had done ine the same fabric. Well here it is. I did it a little differently. I added some trim to it so that it wouldn't be exactly like the other one. Now they are both done and gone. I hope both girls enjoy their new chairs.

To many fabric choices...

So I'm finishing up a chair that I'm redoing for someone then I would like to start on my wing back chairs. After the holidays of course. My problem...well there are just to many fabrics to choose from and it hurts my head. I know I'm being dramatic but it's really though.. I had one picked out and ordered 20 yards of it and I got a really good deal on it but now I'm not sure if I really love it. I mean Love it enough to do two chairs in. For small things sure. So what do you guys think? I have a few that I really like and I'm posting them in the hopes someone can help me out here. Here they are..

This top one is the one I have already bought.

Love, love, love this one but it's a little pricey.

Love the colors.

I like chevrons but not sure how long I would like them.

Again I absolutely love this one.

Pendent covers..

Today's been project day. I also did these light covers for my pendent hanging over the dining room table. I just felt like something different and will probably change my mind again but for now here they are. I took some small tin pails that I had painted and distressed them and there you have it.


For the love of chairs...

I love redoing chairs. I have eleven chairs in my house right now and that's just dining room chairs. I saw these at my favorite thrift store and I passed them up several times before I decided to go back and get them. Usually when this happens the thing I'm after has already been taken but I got lucky. I decided to start them today and I got one finished so I thought I'd share the before and after with you. I decided on an off white that I concocted from a couple paints that I have. I mixed up some homemade chalk paint and went to it. I'm not kindding when I say this stuff dries fast. I had it painted, distressed and the seat put back together in less than an hour. The reupholstering took longer than the painting and drying. I love it. I used some fabric that I got in a 20 yard bolt for about 65 dollars. Great deal. So here it is. I hope you like it and I can't wait to get the other one done.
