New Chairs....

One of the projects I managed to accomplish while I was on holidays was to cover some chairs I have had for a while. The cute little stool is a $5 bargain I got a few years ago. I had already covered it and painted it white but it was time for a change.
I just love this little stool, it is easy to pick up and take where ever you need an extra seat. It currently lives in our study which I just redecorated with black and white accents so this fabric was perfect.
This chair was a desk chair I had when I was growing up. It originally was my sisters when she was at University and then I ended up with it. I had already reupholstered it and painted it a few years ago however I felt it was time for a change.
Gone with the plain calico and in with a pattern. It turned out quite nicely and I am happy with it for now. This chair lives in our bedroom and the stone colour works well.

It was great to achieve something in my time off. Little projects like recovering chairs are so great because you get results fast. So nice to be able to have a job started and finished in a matter of an hour or so. Some of my other projects were small and some took a little longer. I'll post more soon.
