A fabric store in the area is going out of business. All the fabric they carry has to be ordered. That may be why they are closing. I happened to stop in the other day to see what they were getting rid of.
I asked if they were still selling things and they said yes but the material still had to be ordered. I asked if I could buy the sample. They said yes.....and it was cheap!
Since redecorating my craft room and moving my toy box turned storage chest in there I needed to put something in my hall.
I found a chair that I bought to sell then decided to keep it for that space. Does that ever happen to you? I just fell in love with the lines. Then I upholstered in my new material!
These are the colors in my hallway. So I painted the chair in Aubusson Blue and lightly distressed it.
I knew this would look great next to my painted hutch.
I think it is the perfect touch for the room!
The best part is that the whole project cost $14!!
I love projects like this,
It now makes walking into the house a cheerful welcome!
Would you have kept it or sold it?
