My parents were getting rid of some awesome chairs from the cabin - in June. We took them to our house instead of DI, intending to get them reupholstered. I kept the awesome avocado green and harvest gold chairs for 2 months, but they just didn't work with the blue. Finally we found the perfect fabric ($6/yd and 7 yards), called Hector and got them done this past week. I love them!! Check out the before and afters!
I also repurposed a lamp from my mom. Gotta love white spraypaint and new bulbs! It is a great piano light. Laura loves it when practicing in the evening.
I also received a painting by my great aunt that I re-framed on a great sale at Hobby Lobby. It looks wonderful in the room that I am calling my "female heritage room."
When Hector brought back the chairs, we asked him for a price estimate on reupholstering the couch. It was a lot more than we expected. So, we bought a new white one from IKEA for a lot less. While there, we also found a cabinet that would work as a curio cabinet and storage for music books. Though, now that it's in, I realize that I need to paint the back panel my blue in order to make my pretties pop. Oh, and I need to secure it to the wall before I put my nice pretties in there!
I have quite a few things left - sewing curtains and pillows is the biggest. Painting the aforementioned cabinet. Maybe beefing up the crown molding. Finding a small table for between the chairs. But, the room is definitely coming together and finally has some style!
