I found this old chair out by the trash bin behind my house. She seemed to call 'Rescue me"as I got in my car. When I came home to find her still sitting with her shabby arms and tired old faded fabric... well she ended up in my work room.
I have a large collection of fabric samples. A friend's Mom used to save them so they wouldn't end up in the land fill and give them to me. For years I have made the most lovely colorful things from these squares.
This is the tag off the collection of samples I used for this project. A wonderful chintz stripe in several different colors. I never recovered a chair before. Oh... I have done the seat of a kitchen chair but never a whole chair.
The blond wood chairs were also out by the bin in the back. I have 4 of them and the matching magazine rack and book shelf. Each day a new piece appeared and each day I carried them up to my work room. The Law of attraction was providing me with new furniture! I just love that. The final result was a great new look for my work room and a wonderful purpose for my documentary print sample squares. This whole project cost me $3.75 for a box of little nails and gave me a wonderful sense of satisfaction.
It isn't perfect but it works. LOL Hot glue and nails and a great determination to do it were my tools.
My vision board was a gift from my secret sister Katie. I love it! Thanks Katie, it is now one of my favorite things. I will be adding to it and hanging it proudly on the wall when the room is finished. Note that I put the tag from the fabric on the vision board to inspire me all along the way. Stay tuned and you will see the final result as this room gets a paint job and is turned into a great place to create treasures for Lilli Blue's Vintage Rescues . Have a fun week and be sure to visit us at Make Mine Pink for Romantic Bed and Bath Pink Friday! Blessings, Lilli
