Some of you may remember that I purchased these two chairs for $14.41 at Goodwill last year (they had small tears in the seat). I sold one at my garage sale for $25 and kept one to use in my living room.
I was going to have a cushion made for it but something always came up that required money! The garage door broke (and I mean broke) and had to be replaced, the ac went out and needed a new motor, my husband needed a root canal AND I just broke a tooth over the weekend and need a crown! It's just one of those years! Anyway, I just decided to make a cushion myself since it looks like that's the only way this chair will get out of my garage this year! I need the chair that was there in another room. The chair dance! I'm switching chairs around in my house..
I bought a 20 inch square cushion at Jo Ann's over the weekend (They were having a Coupon Commotion sale) so I got it at 40% off and the fabric was 30% off (I only bought a yard). I sewed a very basic pillow - straight stitching is very easy to do and I'm not a sewer! So if I can do it you can too! When I have more time I'll tackle making a proper box cushion but for right now this will do just fine! (It takes me forever to sew anything the least bit complicated).
This is also a thriftstore chair the I recovered. It's going to go in my office and I'm going to change the fabric once again!
Yes, I never got around to changing the paper in the other bookcase! The weather has been so nice lately that I've been working on outdoor projects. We're supposed to have some rain this weekend so I'll probably get around to it then.
You can click on any picture to get it to enlarge. I'm glad I finally got that chair out of my garage because now I can get on with office/guestroom!
Thanks as always for stopping by! I'm still trying to get to everyone from the Thrifty Treasures post - I'm not ignoring you! I've just had some things come my way that require alot of my time right now.
