Loving purple!

A while back one of my friends e-mailed and asked if I could fix a chair for her.  No problem!  (I posted about it here.)

So while I was there, she pulled another chair from her garage and asked if I would please just take it.  For those of you that don't know me very well, my husband says the reason I got into this business was because I needed to have a reason to buy more chairs.  Anyway, I couldn't turn it down....although it did need a lot of love.  

The chair was given to my friend when she went off to start college.  I don't want to say too much but, we are about the same age and college was about 2 decades ago, give or take.  This chair was a hand me down (that had seen better days) back then, and life for this little spot hadn't gotten much better.

I was working on a desk (here) and I decided it should probably have a chair sitting with it.  Lara's chair was the perfect size was going to take some work.  I sanded, glued, screwed, sanded some more and then started painting.

I found this fabric on the clearance rack at Hancock's and I loved it but when I got it home, I wasn't loving it in gray soooo, the chair became white and... I love it!  Not sure they really belong together but, they are both pretty stinkin' cute if you ask me!

    Love the chair! And the desk too! What a talent you have!

  3. That fabric is perfection! Do you know what the name of it was by chance? I would love to hunt it down to use on my antique dining chairs!
