Chevron Tall Endtable

 I choose Turquoise for this endtable. Because who doesn't LOVE this color?
 I added new glass knobs and painted the swirl design behind the knob. 
 I hand painted the chevron print on top of the table.
 I love the legs on this table, how long they are.
 A close up of the chevron design.
 and the Before pic....
 Amazing what a little paint and TLC can do...

Quaterfoil Highback CHair and Endtable

Love this color combo. 
It could be for a girls bedroom or dorm room. 
I love that it could be in someones living room.

Jenny sewed the seat cover for this chair. She did the piping in black to give it a pop, I love it.
She even lined up the pattern. Which is not easy at all. But she is good at what she does.
Even though she puts a fight to do it, it always turns out beautiful in the end. 
 I love the quarterfoil design in the back of the chair.
 It matches the fabric beautifully.
This is a close up of Jenny's Beautiful sewing.
This End table turned out better that I imagined. 
The colors all together just pull the colors from the chair and  are perfect together.
Jenny got these knobs a long time ago of another piece of furniture. 
They are vintage and are perfect for this project. 
 These pieces of wood pull in the back of the chair.
Both having the quarterfoil pattern. 
I love how all these cool designs from the 60's and 70's are making a comeback.
I am loving the comeback.
 So BEAUtiful. Like I always say, I wish I could keep this for my house.
But not enough room and my hubs would kill me. 
 This is a before of the end table.
Could not find a before of the chair...oops..

Wicker Chair and Stripped End Table

 The fabric was the inspiration for the color I choose for the chair and end table.
I got the Fabric at JoAnnes in the remnant pile. It's the best place to buy fabric. You get the expensive fabric for half the cost because its a remnant piece. 
Every time I am in a Fabric store I always stop at the remnant table.
 This is the first time we have redone a reupholster chair like this.
 Jenny did a FANTASTIC job with this. She sewed all of it.
 It had a lot of piping. 
She watched a video that I found on Pinterest that should her how to do the double piping for this chair. 
 Love the colors in this fabric. It's really prettty.
We will have to try another reupholster project in the future. 
 So I did the stripes a little different. 
But still stripped.
 My hubbs parents were cleaning out the basement and gave this end table to me.
I love when someone drops off a piece to us and transforming it into something new.
 I used the original hardware. Just steel wooled them so I could paint them vintage white.

 Here is the before pic of the chair and my best kitty Tiney
 Before I primed and painted, Jenny taped off the chair.
 Luckily the jut and springs were all in great shape. The batting was too.
