Our Christmas gift to each other was supposed to be new chairs. Six months after Christmas, we finally found some we liked.
|Merry Christmas to us!|
Bringing in some brighter colors mean that some things just did not work anymore. One of those was this small footstool.
I couldn't find fabric that I thought would do, so I recycled a piece of drop cloth, adding some painted stripes.
The old chairs are moving on, but I wanted to keep the ottoman. Extra seating and a place to put your feet up is always good! I cut the skirt off and examined my fabric stash to see what I could find.
I had plenty of fabric left over from the sofa, and although it wouldn't be my first choice, it will do for now. I had to fit it like a slipcover and sew the side seams before stapling the bottom. That was a first for me, so I was glad I didn't have money invested! I'd like to think I'll order fabric to match the chairs and recover it, but it's not a priority now!
The other new chair is cozy in the fireplace corner; so comfy. I've already fallen asleep in it.
A home is always a work in progress, but our living room won't be seeing any big changes for a long time!
