Here's a little update through my Instagram.
Mom's been helping me with this chair .. photo was taken at night, so the colors are a little off, it's more teal.
I was originally planning a blue for these chairs (I actually bought this, but it was more of a medium blue than a turquoise, so it won't work .. if you're interested let me know, I can send more pics - I have 8 yards.)
Side note: the upholstery on the original chairs was in great shape, so I was hoping to reuse the foam .. when we put the cushions in the truck, we realized that they smelled like smoke, so I had to buy new foam .. grr. Oh well, the price was still reeeaaally good!! (I researched removing the smoke smell, but I couldn't find a good solution, and I didn't want to waste time or money or chance having the smell come back once done .. )
Love after Christmas 70% off shopping! We invested in a tall tree for our new house (1 more day!!!) it will look great with the high ceilings!! (we're making lamps too, so that's what the shades are for :)
And, I've been going traditional and neutral for too long .. I'm thinking COLOR next year!
Finally, the project below is now done! Hopefully pics and post on Monday (I haven't photographed it, so it may be complicated by moving).
This wood came from South Carolina - my grandfather got lots of wood milled after a hurricane went through years ago. It has such a pretty grain (this photo does them no justice).
Wish me luck signing TONS of papers (twice) tomorrow. David has to work, so I'm signing for him too.. hope my hand doesn't cramp up :)
Hope you have a great weekend!!
