Well maybe not everyone. I had so much fun transforming lamps that I thought it was time to upgrade to something a bit bigger. This little chair was a thrift shop find [a whopping $3.00!] and after examining the structure I chose it to be my first, and I use this word mildly, re-upholstery project. I say mildly because the cushion was in great shape and simply screws off the chair base therefore making it quite simple to re-cover. The hard part was in deciding what the new and improved chair would look like! I decided to chose the fabric first and loved this bold striped material. I hadn't originally planned on doing the base in pink [raspberry to be exact] but after covering the cushion nothing else looked quite right with the bold stripes. No it doesn't really match anything in our house but I couldn't be happier with my new bright pink chair.
