Well Hello Gorgous....

OK so I'm very happy with this little gal. I really miss working with the darker colors of fall. I found this chair at a garage sale. I really love the chairs with the pretty legs
and she's got them. so I picked her up and found some great fabric

oh yeah I mixed it up just a bit with a fun stripe for the outside

The paisly fabric is not showing up as dark as it is in person I think there is too much sun comming in threw the window!

Oh yeah here is her before shot... she is sitting patiently in the back row waiting for her "Make over" She is the one with the peach and green stripes.

Thanks for stopping.
P.S. She's looking for a new home!
We hope to see you at The Hog Shed for the September sale it's this weekend the 23rd- 26th

Junk Bonanza Chair

partying with Pink and Polkadot
Well Junk Bonanza is almost here and I am finally getting started on some things to help fill in Claire's booth thus... this cute little number I love the legs and arms on it so I thought I'd try doing something new ( for me anyway ) I've not done one of these chairs with the exposed arms before.

I'm very happy with the way that it turned out although it did take awhile for me to figure out how to do that little bit around the back of the arm where I have the two buttons

All in all it was a good project I learned a lot! ( and still have most of my hair!! )

Here is the final before and after ( looks like I turned a boy into a girl huh! )
