happy monday dear ones! we’re kicking off this week with one of my before and after projects- then make sure to check back later today for some sweet cyber monday deals!
i found this poor pitiful chair sitting in the corner of one of my favorite thrift stores. so, i paid $5 for her and brought her home! after a nice coat of primer and a fresh coat of yellow paint- below is what she had in store for me!
i couldn’t tell it at first, but i when i started to remove that drab burgundy cover- i found a whopping 9 covers that previous owners had just stapled on top of each other. and, they were all really gross. so one by one, i got down to the wooden board. i replaced their ‘cushion’ with some batting of mine and simply stapled the cover to the underside. after i got all the covers off- it only took me about 10 minutes to actually recover it! now it sits in my sewing room and is perfect at my machine. so bright and cheerful!
