It’s Friday! And I have a spur of the moment makeover to share with you. I forgot to take a before picture in my haste to get started. The chair pictured has been living in the trunk of our car along with other miscellaneous items for the past few months waiting to be worked on. Of course it didn’t have this pretty fabric on it, but a mustard yellow fabric with an airbrushed design.
Isn’t the chartreuse fabric lovely? We purchased the fabric from a fabric warehouse in Baltimore for $6.50 a yard.Yes we snatched up all 5 yards! This project didn’t even use half a yard, but we have intentions for the rest. I’ve recently discovered the manufacturer of this fabric, which is Schumacher and you know that means $$$. The Konaha Leaf in Chartreuse retails for over $130 per yard, but I found it listed here for $94/yd. Yikes! Also there’s a listing on ebay in the red colorway, 13 yards for $104, if red is your thing I say go for it. Read more

Somehow, I’ve found the strength to complete most of the chair. I only have to upholster the back! Yay! I actually stayed up til 5am to work on it because I couldn’t sleep. Surprisingly, I made it into work today. Here’s how it’s looking so far. Isn’t it pretty?
I think the bold black and white stripes look great against the soft gray wall and next to the teal dresser. And yes I just realized the hardware on the dresser is crooked. I’ll be sure to fix that when my bedroom is complete. I believe the stripes are straight enough considering how late it was when I working on it. Breeze came out a few times to check on me and also eat some cotton batting. Does anyone know if that will hurt him? He loves to eat unnatural things like carpet, cotton, toilet tissue, rubber bands. The vet said he was healthy though.
Now that I’ve decided to incorporate black into my bedroom, I began browsing the internet for inspiration for bedroom with black and teal.
I love those zebra print stools! If the size of my bedroom wasn’t the equivalent of a closet. I would definitely consider putting one at the foot of my bed. Read more
