Chair Make Over


In our latest move we were fortunate enough to be given a set of 6 dining chairs by a friend whose kindness has helped us land on our feet over the past few months in London.

They are super but a little tired.

I cut some foam to size to give a little bit of padding to the seats.
Painted the wood a blue-grey.

And covered the seats in 3 various linens I had in my stash.

I love the hot air balloons print. And so does our ted who is sporting an Incomparable heart pendant tied with ribbon.


These sweet geese are also a firm favourite.


I covered the larger armchairs in this linen which I found in Paris. The combination of little birds and writing is lovely.


 While I was busy recovering, it struck me that I could try out some Incomparable fabric to see what it might look like in a nursery or child's room some day - so I gave it a quick try:

Transport theme for a boy's room:


Pink and green teddies for a girl:


And my absolute all time best:

Space theme planets, rockets & stars for girls and boys who dream of being astronauts:
