I Finally Finished My Chairs

I Finally Finished My Chairs

I finally finished my living room chairs.

I told you about the super-cute fabric.  My plan was to finish them right away, but life interrupted.

Then one day I had a burst of creativity and no place to vent it….so I finished the chairs.

I got these chairs at Target a couple of years ago.  This is what they looked like before-before:

Over the summer I painted them and added a skirt:

But I didn’t really like them.  They needed something else.  After much Pooh-like thinking and messing around, this is how they look now:

What do you think?  Better?  Worse?  Who cares about my chairs?  What’s my problem and why do I keep changing everything?  What?

I think they look more sophisticated.  I guess buying your fabric at a whoop-de-do furniture store instead of Walmart has its benefits.

I can’t figure out why the couch looks so GREEN in these pictures.  It just isn’t this green in person.

Maybe I should recover it.  Maybe I should…..

Oh dear, I keep getting carried away.

(but I do think the couch would look better in off-white, don’t you?)

  5. I like the couch the color it is. It makes the room look warm and homey. And plus, I have to have darker colors because of the kiddos.

    I really liked your chairs before and I think they look great after the re-do. I’ve said it before, but it is amazing what you can do!

    I love the chairs…. I’m ALWAYS changing stuff around in my house…. I think that’s what keeps it fresh and new…. I get BORED with things the same way day after day after day. I think your chairs look amazing and LOVE the fabric!

  13. They are darling and quirky and I love them–off-white would be better, yes.
    But they look nice now, too.
    I love the leaf art on the plate on my most favorite pinanno!
    I wish your changing everything around disease would wear off on me.
    I have felt SOOOOOO uninspired lately.
    I love ya, girl!

  14. Cool project… I think everything around our house evolves like these chairs…. I really like the calligraphy on the pillow.

  15. Wonderful, as always. I love the font on the pillow too!! ……do you know the name of it?
    Do you have a big fancy embroidery machine? Mine is just a Simplicity (brother), but it keeps my kids looking sharp=)

  16. LOVE them!! and maybe a go on the couch-in-cream…why is it one thing always leads to another!?!
    guess a “good house is never really done” afterall!
    Many Blessings!
    a pocket full of posies´s last blog post ..just a thought

  17. I think they are great! I love the added black.
    Your house is always just calling my name, I just love your style!
    Thanks for linking up to AP Tuesday…and thanks for your well wish comment to me awhile back, I felt your love.

  18. I love, love, love the chairs. They look perfect! And I absolutely adore the silhouette piece above your couch. You are so creative!

  19. I have to laugh because I am – at this very moment- getting ready to sit at the sewing machine and cover cushions for my chairs! But the sun is shing- and its the 1st really warm gorgeous “come outside and play in the flower bed” day- and I am torn-! Geesh! Flowers or sewing machine??????? I think the flowers may win out- Anyhow- I love the FRENCHY look of your chairs- I like you am OCD and I have only a teeny- weeny suggestion- if I may= plump up the cushion with batting- a feather insert- something to make it look fluffier and softer and more high loft- that would make it over the top! Enjoy your day- enjoy your beautiful family- GOD Bless y’all
