Sneak Peek

I am off today to Victoria, British Columbia for J's soccer tournament.

 So while the paint is curing this weekend on my recent thrift store find... 

{ for "behind-the-scenes" peeks you can follow my Facebook page}

I am giving you a sneak peek of a LONG overdue project that is finally finished.

Quick overview.

Found this:

Removed a gazillion nails and staples...

Found straw as the stuffing..

Stapled on this:

And hammered in these:

Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Oh Barbara, I think I love you!! I hadn't considered bolsters at all, what a fabulous idea!! I will re-cover the original side pillows, but now I think I have to create a set of sausage pillows (lol) too! Thank you so much for this idea =D

    Also, I just LOVE your new find, can't wait to see the rest of it! (the stripes + nailhead trim = to die for!!)

    Have a great weekend Barbara!

  11. That chair must have been really old to have straw stuffed in it!

    Can't wait to see the finished product.

  12. You're such a tease! I thought I was going to see the entire chair, but so far I'm loving what I see.
