I've been seeing spring blooms on some of the other blogs that I visit.
It gives me hope that all of this snow, and cold will soon end, and we too will see what is hidden beneath the frozen earth.
Okay.....this is so not me.
A friend of mine had a bolt of material, and was willing to share.
I've been wanting to make chair pads for the dining chairs ever since I got them.
I was planning on doing white covers.
However......the hubster is NOT a delicate man.
He is more like a man that lives in the woods kind of guy.
Needless to say, white was out!!!
I didn't really want ruffles, because I love the detail on the chairs.
So this is what I came up with.
The fabric is very heavy...like upholstery.
It's really stiff, so it's not laying on the seat quite right for now.
The ruffles on the table runner are also stiff!! lol
I used what was left from the vintage runner used for the hearts (see previous post) on this runner for a little bit of a vintage look.
As you can see, the sides of the chair pads are not laying down because they are too heavy, and STIFF!!! Hopefully they will be okay with time.
I'm not sure I like this look, since I'm so used to "white".
I plan to make a couple of pillows for the crib, and also a bedskirt for it. Maybe to tie it all together?
I just don't want too much color in here. Ya know what I mean?
Have a good week!
