John found this chair earlier this week.
I wondered why he brought it home. It’s pink and not my style. He claimed it was cozy and made me sit in it. It was firm and comfy with a rocker and swivel base (so retro!). Still, not my style. But, like every thing else that gets brought into this home, I started to think about how to redo it so it would fit. It just so happened that I had 10 yards of butter-yellow cotton duck in my sewing room waiting for a project.
First, I padded the chair to add some extra shaping. Also, it adds another layer between me and that hideous pink upholstery.
Next, out came the fabric. And out came my little “helper” who likes to be right in the middle of my projects.
Scissors, chalk and pins were all it took to get the fit. I sewed it in spurts over a few days. The result:
We seem to be finding lots of furniture lately. Is this the redecorating time of year? It certainly is in our home.
