Back in the day when I purchased this chair and ottoman dark colors and the Ralph Lauren look were all the thing.
Here’s the before color. Still in good shape, just not my style right now.
And here it is now. 1 1/2 drop clothes later.
This chair has an attached cushion. I’ll tell you….every piece is a new adventure.
Of course…..I needed new pillows. The forms I already had, and most of the fabric came from a $10.00 box of scraps that Heather found at a garage sale last summer. There was some GREAT fabric in there. You ROCK Heather!
I’m going a little more colorful in this room. It’s where we watch T.V. and spend a lot of our family time together.
I also painted the chest that was already upstairs. Heather suggested hot pink. I panicked and hyperventilated at the mere thought. I compromised.

I wanted it super distressed so I sanded the heck out of it. Normally I clear coat all of my pieces. I think I’ll try wax on this one though. I’m going to let it cure for a few days. It’s been rainy and humid here.
I’m liking this look. Kind of a combination of new and old. The old bowling trophies were my Grandpas. Along with the old medals that I have laying in the tray. And I would like a new lamp. Something shorter and fatter with a barrel shade maybe. More modern.
Next up……the sofa. YIKES! I’m working my way around the room. I was going to order a slipcover. But now I like my chair so much, I would like for them to match. Oh well, it’ll be a lot cheaper. If my sanity survives. :)
If I make it to the fabric store where this fabric is…….
……I reallly want to use some of it for my sofa back cushions. I hear it’s discontinued and only one place still has it. Unfortunately, this piece isn’t mine…..darn it!
Have a great weekend!
