sitting pretty

When you’re always so busy making stuff to sell, sometimes it feels like pure indulgence to spend time making something for your very own self. That’s how it is for me, at least.

Sorting out the things that got shoved into the spare bedroom, I unearthed this old teak chair that used to be in my shop. Inspired by ideas on pinterest, I gave it a quick make-over with some patchwork squares and a staple gun. Honestly, it took me less than 45 minutes to sew and recover the seat. Great satisfaction!

PS. So many of you have sent me personal emails lately – thank you. Even if I haven’t replied to each one, please know that they have all been read with gratitude and have touched my heart.

    Lovely, well done! No woman should be without a staple gun… I reupholstered our 8 dining chairs with a bargain end-of-bolt remnant and the Dowager thought they were new chairs!

    Lovely and very inspirational. I have 4 similar chairs with ghastly beige covered seats that can do with a patchwork makeover.

      Any similarity to previous colour scheme is purely coincidental – I tend to grab whatever’s closest and start with that. (That’s why I have a lot of mistakes that I never show anyone…)
