Pair of FUGLY chairs #2

So remember these.... the pairs of horrible carpet chairs, you have to scroll down a bit.. Well I finished the second one and boy oh boy I have one word...."Jealous!" The second I finished this chair i was ticked... I wanted it for me! Michelle had picked out 3 fabrics to work with for the chair and ottoman. We had issues with getting enough fabric so she mixed it up and made it funky and fresh! let me just remind you of the horribleness I had to start with. (never mind the red head riding her princess bike in the background. She is refuses to take off the princess jammie shirt she is wearing. its been on for 3 days now. thanks mom.... that how we roll)

She found an awesome mustard corduroy for her cushions, a neutral quilted brown fabric for the ottoman and a cool synthetic grey corduroy for the body of the chair and all the piping for the cushions, chair and ottoman. The piping pulls it all together. It will make more sense when she sends me pics of her completed room. I can't wait to see it, but till them my pictures will have to do...Now take a looksy!

I love it and the mustard and grey combo is my favorite!!
Next up... Nursery Fun! So this client happens to be my cousin's neighbor. She is expecting her second little girl any day now. I hope sooner than later for her sake! Anyways, she is in transition of moving her toddler to big girl bed and getting her nursery set up so bare with me on the pictures. She is going to send me some once she gets her curtain rods up. Back to the story... She needed 4 curtain panels made for the nursery that hang 8' tall, crib bumpers and a crib skirt and a coordinating pillow. In her toddlers room we made a long cushion for her wind seat with a matching valence as well as a few fun pillows to trow on the bench. The fabric she chose was AMAZING! I can't wait to see it all up in put together.
Here is a picture of the crib bumpers. We did 6 pieces that will tie together and a matching crib skirt.

In the same room she will have 4 curtain panels (fabric on the left...the one on the right is the valence for the other room) and a matching pillow.

Here is the bench cushion for her toddler room.

and then 2 of each of these pillows

I love it all! It makes me want to tackle so many projects around the house. Maybe... Anyways, next week I have to make cushion covers for a client who loves their leather sectional, but can stand to look at the warn, ripped and make shift patches for the cushions. I also have another chair and ottoman combo too. I still have a few spots open for this month but they are filling up fast so contact me if you are ready to go! Have a lovely rest of your saturday night. I know I will, Charles Barkley is on SNL so....gotta go!
