In all my years of thrifty finds- this is one of my all time favorites!
It is 40" x 40" square and still has the World Market tag on the back! I think it is going to look great in my daughter's new apartment.
I am having a melancholy day. My little doggie is at the hospital getting oral surgery and my nephew may or may not be in the people hospital after a nasty car accident on the freeway. My oldest sister does not seem to have the ability to use any modern methods of communication including but not limited to the phone, texting, email or smoke signal. So I am sending out a little prayer for you Tim and hope you are doing OK.
I am working on a super-secret project that I will do a tutorial on after the recipient has gotten it and it's not a secret any more :) This is a cabin-fever time of year for me because the heat and intense UV rays keep me from being outside too much. You would think I would get a lot done, but I spend time obsessing on things......Like this chair:
I bought this chair and ottoman 13 years ago at a great price to fill a big corner of the library of our old house. It is really large, not super-comfy but not bad either. I just keep thinking it could be more "me". But look at all of those furniture tacks! I just don't think I have it in me to completely rip into this, plus the leather is in perfect shape, as the chair has not had any heavy use. I have been toying with the idea of just re-doing the bottom cushion, the arm pads and the loose back pillow. I would like to do a foam core with a down wrapped seat so that it had more of the feel my Uncle Charlie's antiques had. So it would envelop the person sitting in it more.
I am also considering making my own fabric design for the back pillow, and toying with a few ideas:
So now you know my intentions. We'll see what happens in the end. ;-)
