I tell ya, if you ever hit a dry spell of creativity and inspiration, 10-15 minutes perusing all the amazing blogs in the home design/decorating/refinishing community and you’ll practically bound away from the computer screen, eyes crazed, in pursuit of the nearest project not tied down.
Which is what happened to me Wednesday after reading Little Miss Penny Wenny’s Chevron chair reupholstery project. What a wonderful transformation! I love the silvery wood color, the fabric is to-die-for, and I especially love how taut she was able to get the fabric all around her batting. The finished product looks very professional ~ and I was completely inspired. How hard could it be to reupholster a chair?
I literally bounded into my living room, grabbed this chair I’ve been dying to upholster, and started tearing away at the piping.
I got this far:
Browsing on craiglist for the umpteenth time all week and finding nothing, I came across this crazy/beautiful/uncertain sofa table and felt that familiar ‘I think I just found something amazing’ tingle begin deep down in my toes:
At this point, I really have no idea what I’m going to do about either one of these issues, but I must be completely honest~~
I fell in love with the legs.
What’s a girl to do?
I’m also hoping it will be a perfect fit behind our new sofa in the living room.
So……. I guess my next step is to head back to my wonderful blogging community until I am so inspired with new ideas for this piece I’ll be busting at the seams to tackle it.
Ahhhh, how good it feels to be back in the saddle again.
