Find a way to make changes with out spending all your change can be challenging. I have purchased many roseback chairs over the years. Many needed work, some I even had to use for parts for the 'other chairs'. I have one that still has a 'nick' out of it that I am going to fix with wood putty before I paint them.
So, this week I went and bought fabric. My living room has alot of green in it, my china has blue and I needed something to 'tie' it all together.
I went to Joann Fabric with my hubby on Sunday and after a little tiff because he pointed to some black fabric and I said "yuck". Finally, we found something I liked and Jay didn't hate. When I get moved and get the chairs painted I will post pics of the full before and the final after. It was on sale and I spent a total of 21 dollars.
I bought an extra yard of fabric, plus I should have a pretty good sized (2yard) strip about six inches wide left. I may try my hand at a few braided placemats with it. Hmmmmm?I am goning to keep enough to redo Duncan's chair a few times before I change fabrics. Figure five years maximum before I change it.
Now bear in mind this is the chair needing wood putty and sadly that blue peeking out is NOT the ugliest fabric I am going to be changing. :-D
So what little change have you made this week?
