BRING the OUTDOORS IN

I was reading the magazine allYou and ran accroos this article...and since i cant keep plants alive, I thought it would be a great idea to bring the Outdoors In!
I got this chair at a garage sale for $5
Does it scare you?
Yeah...me too.
And besides this FLUFF, you wouldn't believe the wood damage from scratches and nicks!
So I took this fab fabric...
To transform the scary chair.
This chair has a certain...elegance.
A beautiful shape!
I wish I could give it justice in a pic!
I didn't stop there...I took this worn wooded tray:
And this $0.70 bamboo placemat:
Cut it, Fit it:
Mmm...

I am SUCH a PINK ADDICT that I was thinking... that chair would be so girly if it was painted white with some little flowery details to go along with the pink fluff! All of my non-pinkaholic friends would LOVE your redesign though... I just wish I could get a handle on chairs like that!

That is awesome! I love the redos that you do. You have inspired me to take on some projects myself. :) Not sure I can do as good a job, though.

Scary is right, but I love the redo you did. Sad thing is if I had found it with it's pink fluff seat my granddaughter would have loved it and batter her pretty blues and it would have ended up in her pink room. LOL

Super cute!!! Yeah, that pink fur was a little too Austin Powers for me. Your daughter is a doll! They are so much fun at that age. Great job on the suit, would have never thought of that.
And thank you, but look whos talking - you are gorgeous!!!!
