Truly, Madly, Deeply

We bought these chairs  year and a half ago. I loved the look and scale of them but I just didn't love the fabric. They went well with the sofa that we had and I knew that I could reupholster them "someday".




Well when I found the couch of my dreams I knew that "someday" had come. Aric couldn't believe that I was going to mess with these chairs. He was actually going to let me sell them on craigslist and buy new ones. I was game but I still couldn't find any chairs that I loved and in the end it just felt like a waste of money. So I went and found some fabulous houndstooth fabric and took on these beasts.





Forty dollars and about ten hours later I now had the chairs of my dreams to match the couch of my dreams....




I am so happy to finally have this room put together. Yay!

Love the chairs and the couch! Especially with the piano. Sounds like you had a great "pause" week! I'm jealous. I just want to pause the drama in my life:) Hopefully soon.
