A Chair for Spring

This is one of the projects that I will be working on for the Hog Sheds March sale I found this fabric at my local Jo Ann's Fabrics and thought it would be perfect This is the chair that I will be slipcovering I hope you come back to see how it turns out.
Oh and these are the little guys that inspired the whole project. Claire will have these little cutties for sale too but hurry they always go Quickly!!

Thanks for stopping ~ See you next week

Some things finished in the shop this week.
First is this rocker that was given to me. (of course I did not take any before pictures) it was a "lovely" wood with gold detailing and flecks on it. I was contemplating just tossing it because it's sometimes hard to sell rockers. I just couldn't throw it away it was supper solid and absolutely nothing wrong with it other than being ugly. sooo I had my girlfriend Susan paint and distress it for me (beautiful job Susan, Thank you) and I made a super soft Deep cushion for the seat along with a pillow that is filled with super soft down like filling along with fragrant lavender buds Perfect for a soothing and relaxing rock. This rocker will be available at the Buffalo Nickle in March.

Second: the chair that Needed a little redo on the store bought slipcover is re-Created into a full length slipcover

with button detailing on the back instead of the tie that was a bit big and sloppy looking.

Simple and clean... that was the clients requirements

I like.
Thanks for letting me share
Stop back tomorrow to see what I'll be working on next week.
