A Few Things on Friday



Hi Everyone,

It’s Friday again, this weekend I hope to get a lot accomplished on my chair upholstery project. Keep your fingers crossed for me. In the meantime I thought I’d share a sneak peak of the fabric I got for the job. I scored this linen twill fabric on eBay for $60 for almost 10 yards. Which is going to go a long way to keeping the overall cost of this project down.


It’s a fairly heavy weight upholstery fabric that I think will wear well over time. I decided to keep the chairs neutral since there’s so many other colors going on in the room with the colorful Ikat drapes floral and striped pillows. To add some interest I also purchase a couple yards white denim fabric for the piping to add a little bit of contrast.


Finally I ordered some nail head trim to add just a little touch extra by accentuating the curves of the chairs.image

It’s a little it different take on light chairs with dark piping. I’m going for beige chairs with white piping and I hope it’s going to work out like I’ve dreamed it up in my head, bringing these guys back from their tattered orange Naugahyde state they were in. I can’t wait to get to the pretty part of putting them back together. We’re still in the ugly frame state, But we’re on the right path the legs have been sanded and stained a rich dark stain.


I’m also thinking a touch of bling might be nice for the bottoms of the legs. I love dipped chair legs and to me these chairs are just calling for it. I think a burnished gold tone like the tables below would match the nail-head trim nicely.

In other news I’m mildly obsessed with this canvas print of a painting by Michelle Armas.



It’s currently on sale via One Kings Lane, I had it in the shopping cart, I really wanted to buy it, but I’m still debating it 😉


I’m thinking it would look lovely on hanging above the nightstand. Hello, lovely painting would you like to live at my house?

So that’s what we’ve got going on around here, upholstery and paintings what have you got going on in your weekend?
