I have added a new addition to my entryway/mudroom. A little spot to call my own. I don't read books, just magazines...so I decided to add a little seating area to our entryway.
I had a certain shaped chair in mind. Comfy but not overstuffed and huge. Wood Detail, but not antique, and frilly. Small but not child like. And I found it for $2 at a little thrift store near my home.
When I saw it, I just knew it was the one...The seat was big enough for my big'ol'bootie...I can even put a leg up and get really comfy. Unfortunately it was upholstered with this dreadful green pleather fabric...So that was the next step, finding the fabric! And I did...it was perfect, at Joanns! I got 2 yards (only used 1 1/2) for $12. and then it was time to actually work.
I ripped off all the old stuff, but kept all the innerds...they were in really good shape. Sprayed it with our power washer, and then painted it "Heirloom White" and re-covered it. Ooooh I also added a few couple layers of batting to the seat part...make it more comfy!
And here ya go about 2 days later it was done!
Very fun!I was really nervous about this project...but it wasn't too bad! And it turned out really good, for my first time...I believe I will do this again!
See me soon...I've got more to come!
