Transformation Thursday

This little chair has seen lots and lots of love over the years.

My parents purchased a set of these chairs at an antique auction years ago.

I recovered this chair in our old house and then my sweet little angel found a black sharpie.
A BLACK SHARPIE on my beautiful Robert Allen fabric.
Then after the sharpie incident it just kept getting beat up. Over and over! 

I just gave up at that point, young toddler C was a force to be recconed with and one I was not willing to battle the art of recovering.

Therefore, we went into waiting mode!

Fast-forward to our move here, I knew I wanted to recover but didn't know what in.

So I shopped for a while until I found this smokey cut velvet wonderfulness!!!

The upholsterer brought her back to life in no time!!

I used my white Annie Sloan, clear wax, then dark wax, then clear wax, then watered down some guilders paste and left an awesome metallic sheen to the chair. LOVE how it turned out!

I love how the dark wax and the guilders paste look layered together!

Den: upholstery part 1

The den progress is still slow but steady. 

Last weekend we went to a cousins graduation and on the way dropped these two items off with the upholsterer!! 
This chair is being recovered in a dark charcoal and will also be getting an upgraded paint job. 
And our beloved pottery barn ottoman had seen juice and soft drinks and some magic markets... 
So she is getting a fresh layer of a very similar fabric! 
I have about 5 more weeks before I pick them up so I am anxious to see how they turn out!!

Next up is new fabric for the toile chair!! Soo many options and only 5 weeks to narrow it down!!!

One Tiny Ottoman at a Time

I am embarrassed to say it took me well over a year to find just the right fabric for this ottoman!

These two premier print fabrics go together so nicely!!

We love to snuggle up with the babies and read in this corner before naps and bedtime.

side table-kohls
ottoman-had that thing Forevah!
The fabrics are premier fabrics prints. 
I do not think the stripe is available any longer. 
It was from a collection from 2012 I believe they retired to bring out some new collections.
