one crummy yet very comfortable cane and wicker chair
two coats of grey matte acrylic paint and new patchworky-ish seat cover
Done. Many more things lined up for revamping but it seems I only have enough energy to deal with one a week. Not going to get very far before Christmas….!
That’s lovely. Wish I could order a few for my sun porch!
That is beautiful Jill! I love the color and you. :)
Thanks, Tamara xxx
Looks good. Don’t be tempted to overdo it if one a week is enough. :-)
I have always have such a long list of things to do that, when I ignore it, I start to feel guilty and lazy. I’m hoping that will pass as I get older…;)
I love it. I know how you feel and I’m right there with you. I agree. Don’t push. One day soon, your energy will surge and you’ll get it done. Go with the flow now.
Thanks Marlene. It’s an erratic flow and I’m definitely looking forward to the “surge” you mention!!!
Jill, I think it’s amazing how much you ARE doing — keep it up and we’re rooting for you! Chair looks absolutely FAB!
Thanks, KCB. I think I can guess who you are – looking forward to our next get-together :)
Wonderful transformation, love the colours. Good you are being kind and gentle with yourself and listening to your body. xxx
Thanks, Gail. Sorry not to be seeing you on Monday, but hopefully next time. Happy sewing :)
What a great refurbishment! They look comfy too. Would make sitting in the sun with a drink in hand very enjoyable.
Love the transformation, Jill! I think I may be doing something similar once I’m back in BC and settled. I have a couple of older chairs (different from yours, though) that can use a pick-me-up. Still planning for a seat and back cushion cover for the rocking chair my parents bought for one of my Aunties and which my cousin gave to me. I’m keeping the original cushions, but making new covers for them. Not painting that one; the wood is too nice. Anyway, lovely to see your work, as always. Do take care. Love from the UK ~ Linne
One a week seems pretty dynamic and a realistic target for me! But then as you know, I haven’t been able to make anything since April, apart from sourdough loaves, so you appear super-productive.
sourdough loaves…? I wouldn’t know where to start !!! :)
So nice to be able to give new life to something. You did a fab job! Well done! :)
