Chair Makeover


The first was redoing a chair that's been in my family. It's not something I would have bought but it's a decent piece I wanted to use as an accessory to the room. Instead of buying fabric to recover it, I broke out my doilie pillow covers from the consignment shop I talked about a couple of weeks ago and made use of the fabric (mypinterestreality.com/2012/05/diy-doily-transfer-tee).

    WE had 6 chairs and a table in this design. We sold it at auction in IN when we retired in 1992. Thanks for the memories.
