Home Sweet Home!

There is nothing like coming home when you have been away for a while. There is a rush of joy at coming through the door and feeling the warmth of home and the love of family that greet you. I am so glad to be home, to sleep in my own bed, to cook some homemade "vittles", do laundry that doesn't cost a fortune, sit on my porch and dream of my cottage garden, play with the dog....I am happy to be home!

While I was away I made a list of things I want to accomplish when I finally got home. These chairs are on that list. I've been looking for a couple of chairs to pair with a vintage gate-leg table that I've had for several years. I've been on the lookout for them at some of my favorite vintage and antique stores. Just before I left on my business trip I found these chairs for 35.00 for both; what a deal. I know they look in dire need of an update and that's just what they are going to receive. I don't really care for the brown fabric on them or the color of the stain; so what am I going to do? I will paint the wood, of course, and then change the fabric. I bought some fabric about 7 or 8 years ago at Joanne’s Fabric store. I've been saving it to re-upholster a chair but never worked up the courage to do it. I think that fabric would look great on these chairs! I knew it would come in handy one of these days. Sorry I don't have the after story yet. I need a weekend to work on this; hopefully you will be seeing the after photos next week so stay tuned!
Enjoy your day!

Oh I so agree! I love to travel but really enjoy coming home too. Makes you appreciate all that you have and the comfort a true home really is to a person. Cant wait to see what you do with the chairs.

Hi Willa,
Can't wait to see the "new" chairs after you get done with them.

They look like they have good bones and would be a fun makeover. I'm sure you will come up with something pretty for your cottage re-do!
