As some of you know… I volunteered to help teach a workshop
at my local Habitat ReStore.
If you follow my facebook page, then you already know
we had a great turn out and it all went well!
This particular workshop was centered around redesigning and repurposing
items for home décor and practical uses.
Someone had donated a wooden chair to the store
and I used it for my hands on example.
I didn’t snap a before picture on this because
I didn’t know I would be blogging about it.
It had been painted several times over and against the grain.
The color was a tan or medium brown color.
However, because the main purpose was to show what a fresh coat of paint
and some creativity would do… I didn’t take the time to strip it down.
Instead, I lightly sanded it and repainted it.
I am also on this ruffle kick right now… I love them!
So… I decided to ruffle the chair!
I also made a no sew shabby chic floral pillow for it.
Here is what it looks like now…
Wouldn’t this be cute in a little girl’s room or even a nursery?
I also sewed some tie backs on the pillow.
WELL… after the workshop,
the ops manager actually gave me the chair to thank me for volunteering.
Wow! It’s mine!
So, now I plan to remove the ruffle…
yes… you heard me right…
and strip the chair down.
When I get all that accomplished, I will post about it along with a no sew pillow tutorial.
The fabric is cute but I plan to go with a neutral color fabric, instead.
I also want to say…
Thanks for all the encouragement here and on facebook for the workshop…
I was pretty nervous…
I’m not a good speaker in front of a crowd and I’m kinda shy… really!
So… thank you for checking on me and asking about it!!
And as always…
Thanks For Stoppin’ By!
