reinventing

I bought a chair from IKEA a few years ago when we first moved in to our house. At the time, it seemed to go with the decor, which, if you’ve been reading previous posts at all, you know it left a bit to be desired.

In a burst of creative energy and a randomly chosen Tuesday vacation day, I decided it was time to bring the chair up to par with the rest of the house.

Grey and white chevron fabric, hand cut leather straps, and some mistinted discount trim paint and we have a brand new chair for the reading nook.

I’m pretty proud of this one since when Michael got home and saw it, his first thought was that I had bought a new chair.

Sometimes I feel like I got skills. Tuesday was one of those days.
