My Saturday Afternoon Project


I love a lazy Saturday afternoon...


One where I can just let my creative mind go.... I'm a junk store junkie and always fall in love with things that are vintage... hidden treasures in the corner of an antique or thrift store.

So I pulled these chairs out today to give them their long awaited makeover.

The Before

I found these four yummy chairs a few months again...not so sure what I was going to do with them but knew they had to come home with me and be apart of my new classroom.....


I thought I would share my easy little fun project with you...Hope you Enjoy!

So a trip to Joann's I found these wonderful fabrics and trims....I pulled out some findings, flowers and trims from my stash box too...

All while watching old ( I mean OLD 1928) black & white Alfred Hitchcock movies that my son and I bought yesterday....I love black and white films and anything Hitchcock...

 A little messy paint to give it that whimsical look...

Flowers, Tassels,Buttons and bows....

  6. I love these chair makeover! Gorgeous color scheme...I so love shabby chic! Trying to figure out how to make it work in a 100+ year old New England converted barn...I'm determined so sooner or later I'll let you know when I have pictures!
