We are having a dinner party on Sunday night and I was at Cost Plus World Market this morning looking for some items for the party.
In the kitchen section, I came across this towel with a French grain sack look and knew immediately where I could use it.
There will be 6 of us for dinner on Sunday, but with my chairs and window seat there is only seating for 5.
This chair will be drafted for duty on Sunday night and I do not like the yellow polka dot seat cushion.
Before I blogged or had ever heard of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I found the chair seatless on the side of the street.
I don't even know what type of red paint I used and the seat cover was just some yellow polka dot - yes, it is that bright - that was left over from a quilt project.
I removed the seat cover and did a little sanding - oh how I wish I had used ASCP!
I stapled the fabric to the existing chair seat on 3 sides.
Once the fabric was in place I stuffed the seat cushion with batting I had on hand and finished stapling.
Steve was out on a run and I tried to screw the seat cushion back onto the chair, but I didn't have the strength so I had to wait for him.
I tried the chair in several places and with different items on the seat.
I would like for the chair to be sitting in the entryway right now, but Lulu's crate takes precedence.
The found chair with great legs and scalloped edges is sitting in a corner of the guest room ( a total disaster at present) waiting to be used on Sunday night.
It was total serendipity that I happened to notice the towel at Cost Plus and that I had the time to redo the seat cover.
I just love happy accidents.
