Refresh for Summer....Dining Room Chairs

Happy Thursday All! It's time for another Refresh for Summer quick and easy project. My dining room chairs have been in need of a refresh for quite sometime. So I figured now would be a great time to tackle this project. As I mentioned in a previous post it's hot here in Florida. And with that being said, I am only doing projects that can be completed inside. So let's get this makeover on the road!
 

These are the chairs to be recovered. The two chairs on the left were a curbside find. My Husband brought them home one day out of the blue. The chairs on the right belonged to my friend. She didn't want to throw them out so she gave them to me. She figured that I could probably do something with them, and she was right. At this point I really hadn't decided what fabrics I wanted to put on the chairs. All I knew was that I wanted each chair to have a different fabric. So to the fabric stash I went!


I started playing around just to get an idea as to what fabrics I wanted to use. I opted not to recover the third chair at all, since I like the color, texture, and the Asian feel of the fabric. Plus, this way I would only have to recover three chairs instead of four.


I love, love, love the fabric on the first chair so I decided it was a keeper, but the other two chairs (animal print/solid blue striped fabric) not so much. Don't get me wrong I love the animal print and the blue stripe but I just wasn't feeling it.

This fabric is amazing! It's bold, vivid and tropical with lots of personality. I love it!!!!

I think this fabric is amazing as well. Originally it was being used as a pillow cover, but I thought it would compliment the rest of my fabric selections quite nicely. You like?

Three chairs down and one more to recover. Yay, I could see the finish line.

I chose this brightly colored stripe fabric for the last chair. This is the same fabric I used in my Office Reveal.
 
 
 
Here they are all lined up and ready for the chair Fashion SHOW, and I love the outcome. 
Even though each chair has a different fabric, the fabrics work together harmoniously. This project didn't take long at all. The total time to cover three chairs, was approximately one hour. And the total cost for covering the chairs was ZERO! Who knew? Are you working on any quick and easy summer projects?
 
Go Out and Make Today A GREAT Day!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
