My 'Not So Secret" Addiction - Midnight Madness

SO... I've finally realized it... I am an addict. It all started yesterday morning when I found this amazingly beautiful chair while perusing Craigslist for some goodies to wrap up my Single Girl Bachelor Project. When I saw her my body filled with that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you are in love and my heart began to beat faster. I knew I had to have her! After several messages with her lovely owner (well, previous owner), I found out that there were two!

All day they were running through my mind and I knew exactly what I wanted to do to bring some new life into them. After picking them up, heading to the fabric store to pick out the perfect fabric to cover the seats with, and a quick hardware store trip, I was all set. Only problem was... It was 7:00 pm and dark outside. How was I going to sand and paint?!?!

Now, when you have an addiction like mine, things seem logical that may not appear to be so if one was not thinking in the heat of passion. Like, "lets start a sanding project at 7:00 in the evening, in the middle of my living room". This is when I knew I had a problem... LOL!

In any case, I am thoroughly pleased with the outcome. After sanding, a light white wash and seat reupholstering these ladies are sexy as ever! These are the type of chairs that I know I will continue to have a love affair with and change every so often. Hope you enjoy them as much a I do!

(Boy am I going to be tired today... Need some green tea pronto!)

Have a great day Small Space Dwellers!

XOXO,

The Addict

  4. I must say that I am in LOVE with this chair! I have never had any luck with Craig's List. You have done a marvelous job! I wish we had a Fabricland in Dayton. I am looking for some gray fabric to re-do my headboard.

    1. Thank you Michelle! Craigslist is a hit and miss. Usually have better luck with Kijiji. Be sure to share pictures when you find the fabric you are looking for :)
