The kids were excited that it was finally the first of December and they could start opening their advent calendars. When my son was a toddler I actually had a homemade calendar with 24 individually wrapped presents. Now that my kids are older and in the Lego craze, all they want is a Lego calendar. Star Wars for Noa and Lego Friends for Lilly.
The only thing that bothers me about the calendars is that it makes them get up earlier to open their next door, haha! But they are special memories and I cherish them.
Today I want to share a project with you. A while ago I purchased these two 1965 vintage Thomasville chairs.
I really like the curves in their shape and of course my first instinct was to paint them white once again with a turquoise damask fabric but then I saw this fun, multi-colored striped fabric and remembered my favorite orange color that I had left in the garage. And voila this is what I came up with after the usual sanding, cleaning and priming.
The upholstering was a little tricky, because I had to keep the stripes perfectly straight.
They will be available in my Etsy store soon. I think I want to take some more nice photos first.
LOVE this fabric, don't you?
Talk to on Wednesday,
