Wingback Chair

Remember this chair? Got it for 8 buckaroos at the DI. Lost the cushion on the way home, and my friends found it on the side of the road! THEN- I cut a piece wrong, had to go to the store- couldn't find the bolt cause they were OUT of it- but then found it in the flat folds for like 75% off. I really am blessed!

Welp- turned it into this! I LOVE IT!



My living room is so close to being complete. I really just wish I could get some curtains made...but that'll have to wait. Gotta let our bank account rest from all these projects:)

OH MY GOSH DANIELLE!!!!! I love it!!!!!!!! Don't you wish you had a huge room so you could just keep doing more and more chairs?!!!!! But only so many will fit in a room! I seriously dont' know how you did that chair? Unless it came apart really good- I just don't understand hwo those wings come off? that curving at the bottom- yowsa! all the piping, the arms are so fitted and tight and perfect- LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! I think when we can afford it, we should have an annual trip where we come out for a week, and I come to your house- help you do projects, and then next year, you come to my house, and help me do projects- I seriously would love to do this once we can afford to fly to eachother's houses. love you!

Wow, I was feeling so pumped and looking at that- oh man it intimidates me!!!! Darn it!!! I don't know, the piping makes it look so much harder! How do you get all these $8 deals? I wish I lived where you live! That chair would be $75 at goodwill, I swear it to you. Such a rip. It turned out great! I've been wondering where you've been putting all your stuff and it's all in one room! I can't believe it! It's all filling in! It looks nice. Your right, I think curtains would be the perfect finishing touch.
