Finally, I can say I am part of the "DIY Club".
Except, honestly I am part of the "DIYWMMH Club",
which translates into-Do It Yourself- With My Mom's Help Club.
A couple of months ago, I found this sad, lonely, ugly chair at a garage sale.
I thought she had potential, and I had a vision.
And remember, I am currently obsessed with the chevron pattern.
I scrubbed the chair clean with TSP, and sanded it.
Then I grabbed my black spray paint, did a little dance for good luck....
I could not wait to post this, so I did not include the pictures
of my Mom doing all of the sewing that she did.
She really did the hardest part.
I have to credit my kick-butt Momma, for the beauty of this chair!
Without the fab job she did sewing the pad, and the cushion, and the lumbar pillow,
it would not look nearly as great!
We bought 5 inch foam for the bottom cushion,
and used fiber-fill for the back pad.
My Dad helped too! He replaced the seat with new plywood to make it more sturdy.
It truly was a family affair.
Of course, my kids are all over it, already...... little rascals.
Now, I just have to find a place to put it!
So, what do you think?
Should I keep this up?
Do you think I can convince my parents to help with a
fabric covered headboard?
That's next on my list.
