Moving

Just kidding. Yesterday we seriously toyed with the idea of moving across town to a 3-bedroom house with a fenced in backyard so that we could get a dog and really live the high life. We got the info, crunched the numbers, everything.

We aren’t.

It was fun to imagine decorating the house in my style with all our furniture, even having a guest room and an office, but the sad truth is we can’t afford it right now.

Who knows, maybe I’ll get one of these jobs I’ve been applying to and we’ll get the opportunity to move to a big city in another state. Gotta continue to be patient….

Mid-Century Chair Teaser

I’ll show you the “before” of what I’m currently working on now. By the end of the week, I’m sure you’ll see an “after!”

When I saw this chair i fell in love with the shape and size. I love the thin modern legs, but the slight angle between the cushion and back was the detail that clenched it for me. And the fact that there were two of them. The lumpy faded pink cushion? Not so much. (Actually, I don’t hate the color.) Thing is, the foam inside is all deteriorated and squeezes out in the form of suspicious fine yellow powder. Very no bueno.

So, I am undertaking my first ever upholstery project! The nice thing is that this should be fairly easy. No curves. No arms. Just pop out the bottom, dispose of the nastiness, create a new cushion and cover it in updated fabric.

Anyone wanna predict my outcome?  Guesses on colors or patterns?
