Found some feather plumes, ribbon rosettes, pretty flowery paper plates, and some Shabby Chic stationary at Michaels Craft store last week. I love all their spring themed pretties! I took the last 4 feather plumes they had, I'll need to go back for more.
Love, love, love this horse pastel my daughter did in Middle school !!!!
I love this baby blue chippy plant stand I bought at my favorite consignment store!
Shabby Chic stationary I bought at Michaels, just adore all the colors !
Found this beautiful vintage ribbonwork piece to hold ladies delicates.
Spring colored roses, a lovely vintage tablecloth I've had for many years! I'm really trying to usher in spring!!!
When I found this beautiful Virgin Mary statue many years ago, I loved it ! However it was quite weathered from being outside here in the northeast for many years. So I thought although she was already so lovely, I felt she deserved a makeover too! I grabbed my paints and paintbrushes and painted away!
Now for the before and after french chair reveal......
Drum roll please.....
Dunt, dunt, done!!!!!
Hope you all love it as much as I do....
My hardworking husband slaving away for his sweet, loving bride once again....
My hardworking and oh so loyal husband working dusk til dawn..... LOL....
Annnnnnnnd the dramatic and tremendous After......
So here it is!!!! Originally when I announced I was going to do a makeover on this chair, I showed some friends on Instagram three fabrics I was going to choose from and I needed their feedback as to which one they preferred. This wasn't one of the three fabrics I showed them. I actually found this fabric tucked away in one of my vintage linen storage bins. Truth is, I've had this fabric remnant for several years!!! I knew I loved it and eventually would find the right piece to use for it! I really am very appreciative of my hardworking and oh so smart man of a husband for all the time, effort, money and trial and errors put into recovering this chair for me. I have to tell you that this project wasn't easy and Jim and I have so much for respect and understanding of how and why a decent chair can be so costly. All in all, I spent about two hundred dollars on this project including an air compressor that you must use along with a special electric staple gun. This chair is a keeper and one day our girls will inherit this lovely chair.
Hope you all enjoyed the pics and I can't wait to hear all your comments, ( I especially need to tell Jim all your lovely compliments), it gives him more motivation to work on another project that will eventually be thrusted onto him.... LOL! Also, a side note to Laurie Shoemaker. Jim wanted me to tell you to show Rog the pics to see that Jim used Harbor Freight tools !!!! Men are so funny aren't they!!!! Got to love them!!!!!
Have a fabulous week and thanks for taking the time to visit me!
