Not only am I back to blogging regularly, the new year has also brought with it a chance for me to finally get back to designing my own home. Ya know, the cobbler with no shoes? I have lots of unfinished projects that I will be working on completing this year…and here’s the first one! Do you remember the facebook post last spring where I was polling you about which fabric I should use to recover this chair?
Well, I decided to go in a whole different direction with the space. Don’t worry I still used the amazing rug I won from Rue La La, but I thought it worked so much better in the MK Coastal office. Buh bye orange and blue! In the meantime, I added blue grass cloth to the walls and a walnut hardwood floor. I knew I wanted to add glamor and femininity to the space, but still wasn’t sure about the color scheme. That is until I saw THIS rug!
It was love at first sight! And just like that I had my color scheme. Oh, and then Pantone went and announced the 2014 Color Of the Year: Radiant Orchard. NAILED IT! Anyhoo…back to the chair. Now I was fully planning on spending boat loads of money to make this chair amazing. It was only $50 second hand, so I felt like it made sense to spend extra on fabulous fabric to reupholster the cushions. That was, until I found these at Home Goods!
I only needed 3 of these and for $16.99 I recovered my chair for just over $50. All in, this chair cost me a little over $100 and I love how it feels in the space! Gotta run…I have a book to finish reading.
