Hobby Lobby has opened here and I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am! It’s just so amazing.
My life is officially complete now.
I went there twice on the first day it opened and told my girls that we will be spending a lot of our time there in the future.
I apologize in advance to Matt for our bank account.
Kidding………….but not really.
I bought this at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store :
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? What a beautiful shade of orange, right?! This chair belongs in someone’s shag carpeted living room back in the 1970s.
First thing I did was rip out the seat cushion and that lovely orange pillow looking thing.
I tossed the back pillow thing in the garbage can. Already so much better.
Using pliers I removed all the 752 staples from the seat cushion and in the trash went the lovely orange fabric.
The rest is pretty easy peasy.
Amazing transformation huh?! The first thing I did was sand the chair and stain it a much darker color.
I re-covered the seat cushion with a really cute printed fabric I found at Hobby Lobby. I just used a staple gun to attach the fabric to the back of the cushion.
I used a pillow for the back of the chair. You can buy pillow covers for pretty cheap so I did just that. I had an old pillow lying around that I used. This is a cheaper option than buying a whole brand new pillow.
Love the curved lines on this chair.
For the strip of fabric at the front of the chair I hot glue gunned 2 pieces of rope together then covered it with the fabric. I then used a hot glue gun to attach it to the front of the chair.
I am just so happy with how it came out! Altogether this project cost me $25.00.
Not too bad for an accent chair.
Have a fun and safe 4th of July!!!
