A quick before and after

This was a yard sale purchase back in August.  It's actually been completed for a little while... I just haven't shared it here yet.    

This is how it began its life...
A decent chair, but the fabric especially, was rather... well... blah!

And here it is all spiffed up...It's the perfect accent chair!
The thick seat cushion makes it actually a comfy chair to sit in.  I love this fabric!  I purchased it at fabricland


Now... totally off subject, I know, but it's November.... I am so super excited about decorating for Christmas!  I am going to be sharing a few of my Christmas projects on here in the next few weeks!  Well... computer allowing... we're still having difficulties...hopefully they will be sorted out soon!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year... I can't wait!

    Thanks for stopping by for a visit and leaving a comment. I have seen the Hughes Cornflower pattern on the candlewick pieces on Ebay but never in real life. I will keep an eye out for it though :)

  26. Hi Cyntha, the chair you revamped is absolutely gorgeous. Congratulations on doing such a fine job. In fact, the material you chose to upholster the seat, my neighbour and friend just bought at Fabricland to make cushions. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
