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!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
