Well here is a project that has been forever on my list that is done and checked off. Now I am not Layla, Miss Mustard Seed, Traci or the Nester, but I really really love that I could do this and I am super thrilled with the results!!
See these chairs? when we bought our cottage 5 years ago they were in the basement. Really cute chairs but the fabric coverings are a little tired and faded. Did I just admit that this has been on my to-do list for 5 years? oh wow, I am really really glad to have this done!!
Alot of our summer is spent at our cottage on the lake. and most of our time there is spent outside. So indoor cottage projects are really low on my list. . . but I had decided that it was time to spruce up the sun porch area just a bit . .
Anyway, here was my inspiration . . .
New you are my sunshine art in fun colors that definitely didn't look good with the faded chair covers
All I needed were a few basic tools . . . a screwdriver, some new fabric (found in the most unlikely of places), and a staple gun. Oh and time. that was probably the hardest thing to find!
here is what I found when I turned the chairs over . . a stamp from the Murphy Detroit Chair company. which caused a minor delay in my project because I felt it necesary to immediately google everything I could find out about these chairs. Which ended up being not very much. So back to the project. .
After consulting my good friend Gussy about fabric, she graciously linked me to so many awesome fabric possibilities that I loved every single thing she picked out for me and then I couldn't decide which would be best. I had them all in my cart! As it turned out I was at Target later that day and found these. . .
Have you completed anything lately that you thought you couldn't do?
