Cheery Chairs

Thought I would share a couple of chairs with you that I had re-upholstered recently.  The first chair is a child’s chair that I purchased from Euro Trash last year.  I love the way it turned out.  And the second is a garage sale purchase.  I’m quite pleased with it but the color of the fabric is a little off from what I was wishing for.  Still super cute and fun though.

    You are talented! Both chairs look great!
    Do you do this for a living, or is it just for your own home? Anyway, I see you are a creative person. Maybe you could join the challenge on You might enjoy it…

    Have a great friday!

    The chairs look great! They are pretty out there, which is pretty cool for such vintage chairs. I must go to more garage sales. I would love this sort of chair.

    Thanks everyone.
    The smaller chair is in my daughters room and it is my favorite.
    I don't do this for a living. I'd be in trouble if I did. It took me almost a year to get these done. But now that I've done it once I think I could move a little quicker. I was really lucky because I fond an upholster that was really really reasonable (you'll have to let me know if I'm wrong). $100 for the little chair and $150 for the regular sized one.
    And the union jack pillow I bought last year while I was in England so it's a special little thing.

    Feeling better but still having some headaches. But each day can only get better! Thanks for asking!

    Hope you all have a lovely lovely weekend!

    Loving the chairs they are gorgeous!! what a find I bet the owners would be wishing they had not sold after seeing how you have re styled them, I wish chairs like that were in garage sales over here for me to re upholster, i will keep looking maybe one day, have a great weekend hope those headaches go soon :)

    The charis are "la la lovely" and French style is my favorite. I have "redone" several for my shop/boutique and will post them later on.
    I am just starting my blog and so happy to discover all of the fabulous ones out there –
    But, mine needs much work. How did you get the photos to the right to upload and comments on them? I'm still trying to figure it all out.
