My Brand New Chair

Hi Everyone.


I just wanted you to know that I finished my chair project a few days ago and my intentions were to share about it with you on Friday but......

Hubby had other plans...He thought I needed to get out of the house and take in some fresh air so he planned a family trip to the tide pools. It was the perfect day for it and we had a wonderful time.

And now that I'm refreshed and ready to begin a new week I'd like to share with you my brand new chair....

Here it is....

What do you think?

Run your mouse over the picture to see the before...


Wishing everyone a beautiful new week.








Hugs and Kisses,

LOVE the picture of you by the ocean, and your chair turned out so pretty and cozy. I've been wanting a reading chair, and haven't found just the right one yet.

(I had to wait until I was in the office to see the "before" picture - the "mouse over" for the B&A pictures doesn't work if you're using an ipad :)

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Oh my goodness graces...look what you did!! it turned out great..I love it to pieces. It looks brand new, who would ever guess it started out as a ugly duckling chair.
Beautifully done Ana and you look beautiful too looking out to the ocean :) (Hubby knew best)
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth
PS. Is your purse the same pattern you made mine but different fabric.

Your chair is so beautiful. :0)

Jann said...

WOW! What a transformation! I just LOVE the "new" chair--so shabby-chic and lovely!!!!!! That must have been a lot of work--wish I could do something like that with an old chair we have in our bedroom--I have always hated my chair, but if it looked like your "after" photo, I would be so happy! I love the photo of you at the tide pools, also--beautifully classic--you should frame that and/or send it in to a photo magazine!
