Going Rouge OR Queen of Procrastination
So I have this To Do List of things I need/want to get finished before the baby gets here. I have about 2 1/2 weeks to go. So after looking at my list today... I went rouge and decided to recover an old chair. The chair was my husband's grandma's sewing chair. I've debated a few times about just getting rid of it, but I have a soft spot for old furniture.
The chair has been hiding in our Master Bedroom Closet for WAY too long taking up precious space. So I found it a new home in the hallway and decided it was too ugly to live there as is. So.... I recovered the cushion this morning. It took me a few minutes of wavering about the fabric. I love this Anna Maria Horner fabric and have not been able to cut into it. Finally decided to just go for it. Now all it needs is a fresh coat of paint. I think black.
I'll have to post another picture once I get some paint on that chair... I'm debating whether to get back on track with my list or to run out and buy some paint.
UPDATE: 05/27/10 Here's the finished Chair...
