The New Year is looking promising. I've been doing what I love to do do so maybe that is a sign!
I had this little chair in the garage and even started working on it this past summer by painting it with chalk paint. But...I ran out of paint, so she's sat all alone and unfinished until today.
I really loved the tufting and wanted to preserve it since it was in excellent condition. Just not the right color and I hated the wood piece at the top. So I took it off, ripped off the skirt and carried it upstairs and got started.
I went to Target the other night and seen that the "Shabby Chic" sheets were on sale. I bought a king set in the candy pink floral. I have another set for Hannah's bed. I've loved the print and thought it would look beautiful with the Bella Rose Blue I have in the living room and kitchen.
I cut the elastic from the fitted sheet, draped it over the chair with the back side on top (inside out) and started pinning. Then I cut a slit in the back for easily slipping on and off.
I added a strip inside with extra fabric so it would give way and make it easy to put on and take off since the top of the back was wider than the bottom.
Then adding ties to keep it pulled nice and tight for when in use.
You know me...I love little raw edged ruffles. It's so much easier than trying to make cording.
I still am not sure where I want to put it, but with this print, it looks so well with all of the other floral prints I'm using.
Doesn't it look perfect paired with the Bella Rose Blue?
And even the Cherry Blossom too! Thankfully it's a light chair and I can carry it anywhere in the house with ease, lol. Who knows where she'll end up!
