My client had just moved into her new home and wanted to update her wingbacks. She wasn't in love with the legs, but I liked the way they contrasted with the tan houndstooth---so we decided to do a 3/4 length skirt.
SIDE NOTE #1----
I am waiting to do an official post on my new "work studio", I am still waiting for the sliding barn door to be installed....but in the mean time, we got the new garage floor painted. Which means we got to move everything out of a spare bedroom back into the garage. Which means I had an empty room to give a purpose to.
My sister in law who also LOVES to decorate suggested turning it into an office. I LOVED the idea, and started looking for fabrics! Nothing gets me more excited than a new space to decorate and to buy for treasures for!
Here are the beginnings of my new office!
I picked up the yellow chair from Savers and a day later decided I wanted 2 more. I sent Heber back to Savers to get them for me.
Funny story---he called to tell me they were gone, but he knew who bought them---when he got in line, my step mom was buying my other 2 yellow chairs. BUMMER. I settled on two turquoise kids ones instead. I just wanted extra chairs for when all the boys sit around the computer and play games with their friends.
Got my mirror from the thrift store for $3 and the metal bookcase/ shelf for $20. I slipcovered the lamp shade with some left over turquoise chevron from my bedroom.
fabric! It showed up today, and it's BEAUTIFUL!!!! Heber's going to help hang the rod tomorrow, so I can get these made and hung.
I am slipcovering a chair in the corner of the office in this gray/tan houndstooth.
Side note #2-- Long run this week is 18miles! Marathon is about 6 weeks out. Last week we ran 17 miles on a snow covered dirt road while it was snowing---Beautiful! But I am not going to lie---it was long and my hands got cold, and I needed more water (eating snow doesn't quench your thirst), but I did it... and now I am wrapping my head around 18 miles for this week.
