Chair re-design


Remember this 'Inspiration' photo(above) I showed you of these gorgeous Empress chairs from Neiman Marcus...so pretty right..

then I showed you the similar chairs (best I could afford) from Home goods (below) I snagged



well..I finally got the courage to make my first attempt at re-upholstering.................



I LOVE THEM!!!! Don't look too closely, because there are many flaws. I even cheated and used a glue gun(*gasp*) I know! I ran out of staples and wanted to see how to drape the fabric. I figured I could refix with the staples.. but none the less...I still love them! It looks so much better than the fabric it came with. I know the lighting is dark...but it's late....I'll post proper photos soon. Oh and my couches came in! I have to return the love seat for a new one..that's a story for another time. Tomorrow may be a beach day! Gotta squeeze in the last days of summer!

They came out great! Love the #4 pillow by the way. lol Okay so I spotted in the background the shelf unit...so what do you think. I like it. I have to come up and see it in person. Let me know when you get new loveseat next week and maybe I can take a trip.

I love these chairs. Perfection is the last thing you want. Adore the pillows. I remember some Anthro Mugs that were numbered like this.

I hesitated several months before busting the tile out of my Dining Room Table and grouting in $300 worth of Italian Tile. I was so worried about flubbing the whole project and ruining the tile.

Just a new Anthro Blogger that found your Craving Anthropologie Blog. I have been devoting so much time to my blog that I have let my home projects lapse. This was inspiring.
