Quick Change: Chair Makeover

I finally got my hands on the fabric I've been coveting for our new breakfast nook chairs.

If you may recall they look like this...

And I got all 4 for only $40.

I know I still can't get over it either.

And now...

So pretty!

It's a velvety fabric, super luxe, methinks.

I like the darker fabric with the teak wood and white table.

I got all the fabric for about $60. All in all that makes this $25 per chair for the initial cost plus fabric.

Not bad!

And it looks fabulous with our vintage rug.

A bonus little bottle collection shot for you. Trying to get a few more areas of or house styled out before a dinner party saturday night!

Happy Tuesday Lovers!

How Much Art is Too Much?

What a silly question! Can you ever have too much art?

I think not.

But I am fast running out of space to put things without having a gallery wall in every room. Would that be a bad thing or give our home that collected cozy feel? I'm not sure...

I finally hung this brass do-hickey I bought about a year and a half ago.

I like it a lot!

I have big plans for our bedroom. Its such a mess right now. But I think I've finally figured out the fabric/curtain/bedding combo I'm happy with. I just need some funds to buy everything.

Ahem, birthday, ahem, coming up, ahem.

Sorry, had some phlegm in my throat there.

I wrapped the scarf I got for a dollar at the flea. It's taped all to hell on the back. I didn't want to do anything to ruin it in case I change my mind later and want to use another way. I think it looks so pretty as art though.

We finally got a new TV for the living room and moved the smaller one in here. I was so happy to get rid of that old tube tv for one that hangs on the wall. I will be selling that white chest at an upcoming garage sale (I'll keep you posted on that). I'm not sure what to do about the cable box though. I was thinking of buying a shelf and some cord covers painted to match the wall.

Stupid cable box. What have you done with yours?

I started a new piece of art. I have something in mind and I've done about three sessions on it since I took this pic. I think it might be awesome. Or it could totally suck. We'll see...

Happy Tuesday Lovers!
