...shhhh, I have to say this quietly as not to hurt her feelings, but she was looking a little frumpy & tired...and she felt a little bulky in our space. So she started living in the basement some time ago without a purpose, but I just couldn't get rid of her. I new she had potential! She no longer hides in the basement because she's a new woman now...meet the lovely lady of our living room! She seems to like her new home in front of the couch and we are so happy to have her back with us, as pretty and useful as ever!!!
We are so proud to get use out of her once again and for a mere $27 we were able to enhance her style and give her a new outfit ;.) The hubs was awesome and worked his magic and slimmed her up a bit. We purchased new wooden legs at home depot that lifted her higher off the ground. They were only $12 total and we sprayed them with leftover paint which saved us some buckaroos! The Fabric I was in lust with when seeing it on this Chloe chair at Crate & Barrel
....but with such a hefty price tag I new I had to find the fabric and make something out of it on my own...and I thought this piece of furniture was perfect! I purchased the fabric online for $15 and it was the final little tweak that set her over the top ;.)
Isn't she lovely? We are proud to recycle her and take her with us to California where we can all have a fresh start together. I hope she can forgive us for sending her to the unwanted furniture dungeon and enjoy her new lil' life ;.)
What are some of your favorite re-purposing projects? Let me know!
***The fabric is by Dwell Studios & it's called Gate in the color Citrine ;.)
