A bit of whimsy

Good morning, lovelies, here is a little Saturday makeover to look at over your cup o’ joe. There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with this chair…it was sturdy and well built…and FREE!

DSC_0194You probably have one of these standard dining room chairs functioning nicely somewhere in your house.  Totally functional and in no way horrific….but not good enough.  The yellow fabric on this one was super cute, but it practically blended into the yellowish stain on the wood.  We needed color with a touch of whimsy, STAT.

Turquoise and red!

I love how it turned out!
