Remember This Chair?
Hi all! Hope you had a great week. It's almost Friday again. Yay for that, and Mother's Day too!
Do you remember this chair that I bought at the Paris Flea Market in Carpinteria? It was June 08. How time flies when you are having fun. Anyway, this chair is out of the house right now. It went to the slipcover ladie's workshop. It will come home next week with a new cover. Can't wait to see that, because you will never guess what I am having it covered with. Give up? A giant drop cloth from Home Depot. That's right ladies, a $30 drop cloth. I searched for several months for the right fabric. I wanted just the right linen, but I never found what I really wanted. Not even online, which is really hard anyway considering your really can't feel the fabric that you are buying.
Then I talked to my friend Diane, and she said what about a drop cloth? I remembered seeing that done on one of the HGTV decorating shows. So I thought why not. I washed it twice, in a ton of fabric softner, then gave it to the slipcover lady. Can't wait to see the results. She thought it was a great idea! I didn't have to spend a fortune on the fabric. So you will see it as soon as I do.
I like the red and white stripes, but I wanted to be able to switch it up, like now when summer is coming. I think the red and white is nice for winter. The drop cloth is kind of an off white oatmeal color, which is what I wanted anyway.
Maybe by the end of next we will all see the new chair.
You all have a wonderful weekend, and Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there!!
I'm heading to the Rose Bowl. (My husband takes me there every Mother's Day) Love that! Then dinner with my mom and my daughter. It's my daughter's first Mother's Day!!
Chat again soon.
