Well, some of it goes into chairs. For me, it's chairs. If you follow me on the Twitter or the Instagrams, you will know that sometime in February I picked up these little fugs in my local junk shop.
Honestly, I immediately had buyer's remorse. While I had a vision for them, I just felt lazy, and also inexperienced in this kind of project, also my vision for them did not at all go with the other items in my apartment. But whatever. They were mine, and I was going to make the most out of them.
First, I spent about two days sanding, priming and painting these mofos.
Then I waited. Because I knew the fabric I wanted, but had to wait until I had the money to spare on that much fabric that could all go to waste in the event of DIY disaster. And then the time came, and I ordered this Century Butterfly fabric by Holli Zollinger from Spoonflower.
Then my spare room exploded.
Then my cat got hold of some welt cord.
Then I made my own piping and was so proud of myself.
|I don't have a cord foot, so had to use a zipper foot.|
And then this (don't look too carefully because it's actually not finished).
And now I have to find the energy to do the other one.
