Today we are going to talk about the cute little chair in the corner there.
I almost didn't buy it because it was so yucky. It had a back cushion, but it kinda looked like someone had come home every day from working in a mine and sat in this chair. So I didn't even let the back cushion come home with me.
To give this chair a new life first I took it outside and ripped all the nasty off. Then I spray painted it heirloom white. I looked good, but once I was done spray painting I used my favorite Martha Stewart's Black Coffee glaze in the cracks and stuff.
To start recovering it I first put some quilt batting on top of the seat area where the springs were, stapled that down and then covered that with my fabric.
Now all you need it a seat. Basically just lay the old foam on some new foam and cut it out the same size. Then lay the foam on your fabric and cut it out the same shape only a little bigger. Then I just made a pillow case and used a pillow for the back cushion. It is really comfy. Like surprisingly comfy. Prefect for curling up with a good book.
Lily Bella. It is SO nice and soft and silky. I also made the throw. It has white striped minky on the back and some Garden Gate cotton on the front.
I just laid them down on top of each other, wrong sides together, and surged around the outside. Super easy just make sure you pin it a lot. I usually don't pin stuff a lot, but working with minky you are going to want to pin it.
