It's Rednesday!


Life has been too full and going too fast! I haven't had a chance to participate in Rednesday over at It's A Very Cherry World for a long time! But I am today. I wanted to share the transformation of my $5 garage sale chair I got last summer. I was excited when I found the chair since it was stuffed and comfy and only $5! But the blue denim is not my color, RED is my color. When we bought our couch for our front room I got some extra material "just in case" that matches the couch's throw pillows. Well, "just in case" has arrived and I used that material to cover the chair. I didn't bother painting or re-staining the wooden arms and legs, I kind of like the worn look.

Happy Rednesday!!

Ooh, what pretty fabric. I think you were very smart to have "just in case" fabric. Because a girl just never knows!! :)

That chair looks amazing! Glad you didn't paint it either, because the warm wood tone goes so perfect with that red. It looks so comfy too. What an incredible makeover!
Happy REdnesday!

$5.00 for your chair? Now that's a steal. It now looks even better. The red makes it look stately. Good for your. Take care!
