an old chair made new
Well, I guess you know me pretty well...how could I not try my hand at refashioning this old chair with some stenciled linen? Since I'd never re-covered a chair, I chose white on natural...my favorite. Now that I know how do-able this kind of project is, I might give this chair a new look again. I could see this becoming my "morph chair". I have lots of other ideas for it, so don't be surprised if you see it wearing a new outfit in future posts.
Upcycling...refashioning... whatever name you want to give it...making something new from something old is my favorite kind of project. My next goal with fabric printing is to try a simple repeat pattern...maybe an entire yard. Lena Corwin has great ideas for fabric stamping in her new book. I also have my name on the wait list at this fun place. I'm incorporating all of your wonderful ideas from my give-away...I'm having so much fun brainstorming with you. Thanks for your enthusiasm and creative feedback!
