just about there...



Bonjour mes belles,

I am loving today's date....14/10/14, it has a lovely ring to it and I only noticed it when I went to write some cheques this morning.

Today I am feeling happy as the chair is also finished, just have to cover the underneath part with a piece of calico.



After I took this photo I realised that there was a thread that needs snipping off so you are seeing it in it's "raw" state.

Ironically I have decided to keep them for me and have them in our bedroom. I do not have space at present but will do so once I have enlarged my dressing room in a month or so.

I use the word ironic as I had used the fabric as a quilt cover but decided it was a bit flowery so into a cupboard it went.

When I started the chair I thought that it would be perfect for our new project but that has gone out the window as the space now needs larger chairs as it has a very high ceiling....long story and I will not bore you with the gory details now. 

End result the fabric will be back where it started but in a different location and I will use some of the fabric to make cushion covers for our bed.


There is nothing more satisfying than recycling and I am sure that many of you feel the same way. I am now off to continue stripping the 2nd chair.

passez une bonne semaine, Leeann x

  4. Wow, great job. I love the floral fabric against the white frame. This chair will make a stunning feature. Beautifully shaped French furniture always adds such charm with its carved detailing and stunning fabrics. You must be most pleases :O)
