Last June, as it is traditional in her school,my daughter had a "Harry Potter Day",and she needed a costume..she wanted to be HP, but I was not willing to spend too much for a costume, so I relied on my trustworthy thrift store :)
Hi! As I mentioned in my earlier post, despite being away from the Diaries, I never stopped my creative adventures:) A dear friend of mine asked me to prepare her a baby shower for her baby, with the theme "What will it be" as she didn't want to know th ebaby gender before the birth. So...here it is"What it will BEE"?
Hi! A friend of mine gave me thse 2 old chairs for free. I loved them from the start because of their small size, clean lines and solid wood frame. But, c'mon, they were too drab, too stuck in the 80's, too "dental office" ..too sad! Solution: Get some happy fabric and refinish these sweeties. I got this tropical (so me!!) fabric at my local fabric shop on sale and it took me 10 min to finish this first part of this beautification.
Always start stapling from the middle, pulling the fabric really tight, working you way out.
Be patient when making the corners, it will pay off !
I decided to remove the back cushion, as it looks not so heavy and formal. Now to the second part: I need to decide what colour to use to refinish the wood. Suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!
