So, still working on my art center. Finished making my ruffle skirt for the desk, (it was a fail) and I even got to use the desk last week. But what I sat in was a fold-up chair from the 40's. It's funny the more cushion I have the more I need. Think about it, if you're my age and slightly fluffy, it will all make sense.
I went looking for a chair, with cushion, and wheels. I searched the thrift stores, with much sadness, I could only find the cheapest one to be 15 dollars. That just does not sound cheap to me. Then I went to Wal-Mart and what did I find? This sweet little chair for (drum roll please) 8 dollars! taaaa-daaaaa!
I liked it :) I was not in love with it, but that is ok as it is only a chair.
Like most things I drag home it was not safe from being tampered with. I thought of finding a cool tutorial for recovering with some awesome fabric. Then I realize I only have a week left until my mother moves in.
So speedy was the word of the day. So what is used often for a quick fix? No, I did not use duck tape. I went on to the next one. I pulled out my paint! Then I funked it up, while jamming out.
BAM! just like that.
I have seen many posts on painting fabric chairs and stuff. And yes they are so much more dignified but this is MY art center and I like things a little different. I'm suppose to be inspired down there not restful.
I even did a little chevron just to appease the masses.
So be appeased (shaking fist in the air) hahahhaah sorry, sometimes I just have to amuse myself.
I took it for a test drive and it handles nicely.
Ok time to get off here and bust a few moves. I have lots to do.
I be back soon with the redo.
Didn't know I was a poet, did ya?
