I asked for a reading chair for my birthday when I was sixteen.
I was, excuse me, AM, such a nerd.
I got a white wicker chair with dusty blue cushions. I also got a matching headboard (cue Miss M's room)
It has traveled with me to Minnesota, Utah, and now here to Arkansas. It is in pretty good shape, but I felt like it looked like, well, a sixteen year old's chair.
So I took it to my Mom's garage. I scrubbed it down and sanded down a few spots where the paint had chipped off and branches (is that the right word?) had broken.
Then I primed it with grey spray paint. Lovely, isn't it? :)
I promise we're not done yet!
And then I painted it espresso brown!!
I am in love with it! It now fits in my living room! I recovered the dusty blue cushion with a dark blue crosshatch outdoor fabric and threw my trusty beautiful IKEA pillows on it to brighten it up! What do you think? (besides that I really really need a new camera-the iphone just doesn't always cut it!)
I also hung up my artwork (someone asked earlier and it's 38"x32") I love how it looks with the living room!
And here is one half of my living room! It actually looks like a room! Things match and go together! Who knew!
I love it! And now for curtains!!
