Chair redone... an adventure in restyling a piece

 A few months ago (let's say it was 2 when really it must have been at least 5 or 6) I picked up a great set of vintage chairs at a garage sale for $40.00.  I was very excited to redo these little cuties, aside from the nasty comments my husband and mother made about them....  So let us say it has been interesting.  I purchased fabric super cheap in the wholesale district one day months later with the help of one of my favorite customers (thank you Liza!).  Sanded and painted the legs and bases on both pieces (my first adventure with black spray paint).  

A month or so later I took one of these little guys in to the upholsterer with some pretty detailed instructions and much to my surprise picked it up looking like a whole new chair.  What do you think?  I still need to get the other one done (maybe before the end of the year????) but I like the results so far...

Here they are side by side... before and after if you will...

We added the nail head trim, beefed up the seat cushion and the back and removed the attached back cushion. 

You realize of course that no one is allowed to sit in them but hey- they look cool!!

Fall dining

Doesn't it seem fitting that we should just gather around a cozy table and enjoy a long meal with family right about this time of year- or any time really- why do we need a special occasion?

Inspiration.. decorating with pumpkins

Are you ready for fall???

Are you ready for fall yet?  Wouldn't these be fun with pumpkins and gourds along the walkway or on the fall table?  (thanks to Beverly for the great idea!)

We would love to hear and see your ideas... Post your pics to our facebook page..

Ikea in the kitchen

I am loving these pictures of Ikea's kitchen ideas.  So open and free flowing!  The table cloth is just a simple piece of linen fabric washed and draped over the table.  What a great no fuss idea.
