Chair Transformation

Remember this?

It started out like this
and I made a cover for it.

Well, I had two more.

So I did this.

(Fleur de Lis coming)

(to cover chair, just cut a piece of fabric to fit, and staple on bottom!)

then I added this little vignette to a table.

And then I did this little grouping.
(Tea & Treats for two anyone?)

That's what I have been doing to make my world a little sweeter.

And here is a Thrifty Treasure:

And some blue for you.
(my workroom in process).

A long way to go,
but I'm plugging away on it!

Have a wonderful Monday everyone.

Those two little chairs are the cutest ever! I love the fabric, I am going to have to find some of it!
I like the slipcover too and the vingette. It's all so pretty!

A sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm. I love those two chairs with the matching seat covers, and the little tablescape that you created for it was just perfect! Ciao, bella!

oh, you are so talented, I love the new look for the chairs and the grouping is so inviting...Did you fine the fabric allready with the french script on it or did you stamp it on....either way, it is really pretty....

the post above about the button with a code, I don't know how to do them but will certainly put one on my blog when you get it....

It looks great! I recently used that exact fabric to cover a chair. I can't remember where I found it. It must have been Joanne Fabrics which I think is a Canadian co. so that would make sense.

Oh sweet Barbaaraa - you can take a piece of flea market trash and turn it into a true treasure! You are the greatest!



Hi Barbara Jean, Your darling chairs turned out so beautiful ! I love the fabric, did you purchase it or did you design it yourself? I love all your pictures, everything looks beautiful for your tablescape too!

Hello there sweet Barbara Jean! I'm catching up from last week's Met Monday and popped in to say hello. I love what you did with the chairs! Love that Frenchy look. And your vignette is perfectly vintage-y fabulous.
