Chairleaders

My grandma has a chair just like this. She calls it ‘the utility chair.’ True, it is very useful, but useful doesn’t have to mean boring!

Christy gave her chair a graphic punch with apple green and some Greek key fabric from JoAnns.

You know what? I went to JoAnns two days ago looking for fabric, and there was nothing nearly this cool there. I think probably because there is an abundance of senior citizens in this area and the store probably caters to their tastes, but seriously, all I could find was like, teddy bear fleece. Check it out on her blog The Reluctant Blogger.













 






 And speaking of cool fabric, here is another gem from the ladies at Fiber and Fire. Andrea and Patricia prove once again that there is no excuse for a boring chair!

  1. That looks like fabric that would be in the upholstery section (it’s often on big rollers or hanging in small swatches, near the quilting batting.)

  2. i love these changes! congratulations

  3. I always love these chair posts because I like to paint images of chairs on canvas and these are always a great source of inspiration for me.
    I also wanted to let you know that I am passing the Stylish Blogger award on to you. I know with 3000 plus readers you probably don’t have time for awards so do with it what you want or do nothing. I’m okay with that. I just wanted you to know how motivating your blog is to me.
    If you do decide to participate you are asked to write a post about the award and link back to the giver then name and pass along the award to ten other bloggers with seven interesting facts about yourself.
    I know. A lot of work. Again, just wanted you to know I look forward to your posts and I was sure others would to.

  4. FUN! I swear my mom once had a “utility” chair just like that. Well, sans the apple green and greek key fabric of course. Anywho, cheers to people who can upholster and make ugly chairs look great.

  7. Love the transformation of the second chair!

  8. I have a chair just like that. And it used to be MY grandma’s! I saw that fabric at our JoAnn’s in the special order hangsets. You can order as little as a yard, you just have to wait a while for it to come in.

  9. Wonderful transformation!

    Just found your refreshing blog and wanted to say hello!
