I'm starting this week with a wonderful sense of accomplishment, because I tackled a project that had sat on my diy list for an embarrassingly long time. In fact, I literally sat on it for a long time. Undone. This vintage steel folding chair was thrifted a couple of years ago with the thought of recovering the paint splattered vinyl. At some point, it moved out of the garage and into my studio. It's super comfortable and sturdy even with the cushions detached and just a piece of fabric tossed over it to hide its sad state. But come on- enough of that! I told myself that if I didn't fix it by January- it was returning to Salvation Army. So...
I chose my favorite combination of white and linen. I never tire of it. Fresh, clean, inspiring.
Feathers are my symbol for this chapter, so putting one over my shoulder seemed just right. I used my very own stencil from my book... another satisfying moment!
I ironed it directly to the freshly upholstered chair, crossing my fingers that the vinyl beneath wouldn't do something crazy.
But all was well...
And here I shall happily sit to stitch some hope and magic... indoors, of course!
It's only Monday, what might you tackle this week?
