Quick Fix: Chair Re-Do

This is the little chair I bought at a yard sale in October for less than a dollar. I had no place to put it until I did the bedroom rearrangement on Monday. Now it has a corner in my bedroom between the new chest and my old dresser, sharing the space with the clothes hamper. The yellow paint doesn't go with my room at all and I didn't want to get into painting it yet, so I came up with this quick fix:

First, I added a flowered cushion, then

I used a crocheted bedpillow cover to slip over the back.

I used a placemat (that matches the one I used on top of the dresser yesterday) to toss over the pillow cover, and a sweet little sachet I've had for a while to dangle from one corner, and the quick makeover was complete:


The little chair looks right at home in my room, doesn't it?

It settled right in. Nice arrowbacks on chair though. Its quite old.

Clever repurposing! -- and changing things around keeps the eyes refreshed.
I have washable covers on the pillows I use on my futon, which are just regular bed pillows in allergy-control zippered covers -- a concession to my dust allergies.

That's true Mary. Ioften change linens around the house. Different tablecoverrs, etc can make a whole room look new. Almost as good as painting and a lot easier to do.
