My 100 yards of sheer “butterfly” chiffon/voile fabric that I ordered online from Ronnie Home Textile for daughter Abigail’s windows and canopies arrived. (Abigail is nine years old.) The fabric is even better than I anticipated it to be from the photos online! It’s soooo soft and drapes splendidly! Abigail LOVES the vibrant butterfly design that repeats up both sides of the fabric!
More often than not, I buy something with plans to change it, but often I have to think about it for awhile before actually initiating change. Usually, it's just a matter days to finalize my concept for what I want to do, and then I begin procuring supplies to do the task.
Today is different! Today, I bought a piece, knew immediately, and transformed it immediately!
I’m trying to recreate a gift. A friend of my husband’s is an avid pepper aficionado. He grows lots of varieties of peppers from seeds, cross pollinates them, saves seeds, and shares the bounty from his garden. In addition to fresh peppers, last year he gave us a spice shaker full of dehydrated pepper flakes and seeds. It was so good! All through the winter, it was a great addition to chilis, stews, and sauces.
When a window needs to be dressed, it doesn't have to be fabric, right? Right! . . .and, when you enjoy sparkly, metallic ornaments, you shouldn't reserve them exclusively for Christmas trees for only a few weeks a year, true? True!
So here’s the deal, I’m re-upholstering a pair of chairs in this post. See, I bought the pair of chairs at an estate sale for $40 bucks, measured and bought clearance fabric, then took a bunch of photos while my husband re-upholstered them for me! Voila! I re-upholstered chairs, right? Seriously, though, the full tutorial with dozens of photos, step by step instructions, and more is on my blog post! (On my blog's sidebar, you'll find a handy link to my Hometalk account, too!)
