You MUST Chase Your Dreams, For Your Dreams Will Not Chase You

And now the chair

So this is what we started with.  $7.50 at Salvation Army and totally stuck in the 70's.

After some paint we were getting there.

Next I had the tackle the cushion (this is SCARY to me).
This was my first attempt at sewing a cushion.
Funny thing...apparently I gave myself waaay too much seam allowance
and the cushion turned out a bit bigger (okay a freaking lot) than the old one
So what's a girl to do...start over (never)...nope I just stuffed that puppy
with more foam inserts and poly fill until I could stuff no more, then sewed it shut
and called it a night.  It's a bit puffier than the old one, but you know what
it's comfy as all get out!

The best thing - my husband looked at the cushion and actually said "wow, I'm impressed
how did you know how to do that?"
Thanks honey!

  1. Wow, that is so beautiful and summery. It makes me want to sit on a wraparound porch, and sip iced tea, while sitting in it!
