So I had some extra time this weekend (which is sometimes a dangerous thing) ...
and I starting thinking (another dangerous thing!) ...
I went out to the garage where these had been languishing for over a year ..
There's a set of four all like this
Seat cushions are needlepoint (badly stained). The whole vibe is kinda granny chic, but I wanted to make them a bit more sophisticated, soooo, after a bit of sanding, I chose one of these...
I have had this fabric for nine years!! It's called "Tamarind Tree" and it is by Greef. I love chinoiserie prints!!!!
Out came the staple gun
Note to self: Look for a cute pink staple gun
Here is really interesting shot I took of the underside of the seat cushion after I stapled it in place. Wow. Please note I did save the original needlepoint underneath - in case some day some one wants to clean it up and revive it.
No other tools were misused in the makover of these chairs - in fact the cushions just pop out because they sit on top of this frame ..
So here is a shot of the finished project (picture 4 of them)
I would call that a pretty good weekend!!!
Hope yours was great too!!
P.S. Take the time to visit Monkey Grass Hill, a fun blog I recently discovered. There is lots of great stuff here and a handmade jewelry giveaway! (gorgeous!)
