If you're a Sarah Richardson fan like me you've probably seen Sarah's House. Remember the episode where she creates two cute bedrooms-- one for a boy and one for a girl? Remember this chair from the girls room?
I've always thought it was adorable. Inspiration.
Then my friend (who has a cute little girl) found this fabric.
Then she found a chair.
So let's add it up.
Inspiration + cute little girl+ Fabric + Chair (+ me!!.. and at times Doug) = this...
Cute, eh? This chair did not reupholster itself over night. It took me months and weeks to finish since I am the slowest. upholsterer. ever. And once again, I had some had some help from Doug-- arm strength is needed when it comes to dismantling the chair and flipping it around. But when it came time to put it back together my mom and expert aunt were not around to offer sewing assistance and a few pointers... I was on my own. While I had a few nervous moments... it all came together in the end. But let me tell you... I was sweating a few times during seat cushion construction time-- badly fraying fabric + seamstress-in-training + sewing over my finger (like I said... I'm still learning) = the urge to say a few bad words.
Finally, it's done and it looks great. And in the end I managed to scrap together enough material to cover the ottoman too. I'm no expert... but it looks considerably better than it did before.
From what I hear, the little lady loves her new chair :) I can't wait to see it in her new"big girl" room!!
