Repurposed Shabby Office Chair

Hi everyone hope you've all had a 
good week
I've been busy this week
up dating an old office chair
for my own use in my craft room
I picked up this chair for a song
in a second hand store
I immediately decided it need 
prettying up
so began searching through
my stash of fabrics
and found the perfect
patchwork print that matches
the colours of my room
I found a few doileys
that worked well to give
a shabby look
then finished with a row
of vintage braid along the top 
of the chair
another doiley and 
a touch of ribbon and button at the back

The entire project only took me
a couple of days to complete,
in between doing other things,
and I felt pleased that
I only had to purchase the chair
I was able to find everything
I needed in my stash to finish it
I'm so pleased to have this
comfy, pretty & shabby
chair to sit on while
I'm creating!
What do you think?
Thanks for visiting
I enjoy your comments
have a lovely week-end
