The Before

this is what I will be working on today. A nice big chair, she's super comfy and soon to have a nice clean bright look I chose this chair because of the scale of the pattern on the fabric this print is BIG it really needed a big chair.
I love the colors and design of this fabric and cant wait to get it done!!
have a great Day

A New Coffie Table

I spent some time on another personal project today and am finally happy with it. My first try (no pictures ) was the under slipcover made of an old bed spread and the fit was way to tight it looked like a giant mushroom! so I added a slipcover over my slipcover and I'm happy with it now I like the way that the other slipcover peeks out at the bottom
here is the before

yeah it needed a little something, Right?

Have a great week

Wrapped in Chocolate

OK one more post before I get on that plane. I found this fabric the other day at Hancock's and just loved it. Slight problem though, there was only three yards of it left. That's OK! now I'm forced to be a bit more creative... Thus, Wrapped in Chocolate!! I love the look of this chair... A little modern, a little retro. actually when I bought the fabric I did not even have the chair yet.

So garage sale-ing I went. I found this diamond in the rough.

so now she has a new life and I'm hoping that some else will love her just as much as I do.
oh, the back side... lots of little brown covered buttons.

and JT approves too.
Have a great rest of the week.
now I'm off to spend a week in California with my family
Thanks for stopping and for all you Mothers out there have a Happy Mothers Day!

Slipcovering My Lampshades

Wow Its been awhile since I've posted. Well, I've been busy with some personal projects like this one and some projects for clients too (I'll be posting later in the week )
This is a slipcover that I made yesterday for my lampshade
this is the before they are just the plain white ones That I really love but I wanted a little change for spring

I found this fabric at Hancock's the other day and I just fell in love with it You know that feeling that you get when you just know that you have to have it but your not really sure what your going to do with it? well that's the feeling that I had about this fabric then I looked at the price tag, 29.99 a YARD! what!... I never spend that much on fabric but I had a 40% coupon and I settled for 1 yard

I got home and started looking around and thought LAMPSHADE covers.

I had enough fabric to do two lampshades and a small pillow

and since I know myself I knew that I could not make this a permanent thing so they are simply secured by a button at the very top back side of the shade

Yup I'm loving the new look!
