Long Overdue

You all have seen my first chair makeover project (if not you can see it here) and I loved that redo so much that I decided to do another one. I posted about the before HERE, and then forgot to post the after pics, oops.

Before I get to the after, here is what the chair looked like before I started



and here is what it looks like now



The Hot House pillows I won from Kristine at Living with Style awhile ago and never posted the pictures of them in my apartment or said a proper thank you to her. So thank you Kristine, the pillows are more than perfect!! Its like they were made just for me- I love them!



I was playing with my new camera, so here is another picture showing how great the new pillows look in the room



No more chair projects for now...but never say never :)

You did an completely outstanding job! It is so chic, and love how the blue in the pillow relates to the paint color you used on the back of your built-ins! ENJOY!!

Love it!!! The chair looks fabulous, and the way you styled it, even better! I am still going to redo my ottoman using your suggestions--so far, I have gotten the upholstery nails, redone the legs, and now I just have to find the fabric (which is proving to be the major challenge!). But now I am inspired again (yay!).

The chair looks great! I live in NYC and just picked up 2 dining chairs off the street - great condition but BAD fabric. Your chair is inspiring... I think I'll go for nailheads!

I love what you've done! You wouldn't want to do any pro bono work for a girl with a very confused living room, would you?!

Great job on the chair! and that pillow is PERFECT for the room! I've been hearting that fabric since the first time I saw it on Kelly's blog (high street market). Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. I've been a silent follower of yours for a while! I guess I need to come out of hiding more!!!

Have a great night
