on to the next one

now that i have finished this desk, which i still haven't decided where to place

and this....

i will begin this fun project
i've had these for awhile and have been stashing them

they are in really good condition so i think
if i prime and just paint they should be fine.
i plan to do a vibrant yellow for the fabric and
the wood will be painted black.

hopefully i can start this fairly soon.  gotta pick up the fabric, paint and staple gun.  stay tuned...

p.s.  i still don't have the internet hooked up at the new place, so my postings will be sparse until we get that taken care of.


  1. Oh my goodness, I have a chair exactly like this and I want to paint it black too! I am thinking about upholstering it in linen and making some fun buttons on the tufting. I can't wait to see how yours turns out and maybe it will inspire me to start mine!

  2. I love your vision for pieces with potential!

  3. Wow, I love those chairs - my husband's aunt has some very similar ones that I have been lusting after for a long time. I'm sure they'll look fabulous when they are finished.

  4. Your finished pieces are may need to change the name of your blog to the fully fab lane!

  5. The desk is so gorgeous! And the chairs are lovely too. Good luck with your next project :)

  6. So excited to see how all your fun projects turn out!!!


  7. I love seeing all your projects....cannot wait to see the finished look of the chair. And I am still drooling over that dresser!

  8. Can't wait to see the finished pieces!!
