I love a pair of chairs together so my beefcake and I can sit facing each other
spending some time catching up on our day.
Or spending time with God catching Him up on my day.
Or listening to our daughter play her "Precious", the piano.
This is our front Music Room.
I love vintage matelasse bedspreads
and I happened to find one at a yard sale and bought another off eBay (Queen-sized).
They are not matching but still compliment one another.
I made these slipcovers a few years ago, and because they are white,
I can just toss them in the washing machine with warm water
(and a teeny bit of bleach if they need it) and they look good as "new".
White is fabulous to live with because I can tell when it is truly dirty.
Slipcovers are fabulous to live with because I can makeover the piece of furniture
with a little time spent with my handmaiden: Mrs. Stitcher.
Excuse me, Miss W.B., while I lift your skirt to show everyone what your fabric underneath looks like.
I bought them off Craigslist for $200 for the pair.
This is more than I usually like to spend, but these chairs are from the 1940's, and very-well made.
It took me about 6 hours or 3 days and a bottle of wine, *wink* to make each one.
I worked a few hours here and a few hours there.
I think the thickness of the fabric was most difficult obstacle.
If you attempt this- please use a heavy-duty needle.
I must have broken about 3 of them before I had a "duh" moment: I needed a sturdier needle.
The left chair is mine and the right one is my hubby's, but if you came to visit,
you can sit in whichever one you like!
