PHOEBE’S CHAIR MAKEOVER

YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES…
…you can see it in your mind…
the perfect ….
Insert  whatever it is YOU are looking for here….
the perfect
…dress, shoes, paint color, rug,
dog…
….and in this case…CHAIR.
I have been looking for a chair for Phoebe’s bedroom for a few years.
Something modern, and comfy,
and in the words of my recent Apartment Therapy article…
A year and a half ago…
when I did her 13th birthday bedroom makeover, rather than to settle for
the wrong chair, 
I just got her one of those $20 Grocery Store Adirondack chairs… 

and I just kept my eyes open.
and then…just like it always goes…
In July I went into the used furniture store 
for my monthy sweep
(the used furniture from which I have furnished half my house)
and there….it was
THE CHAIR
the chair I had pictured…dirty and ugly and YES
desperately….
in need of reupholstery…
but very GOOD BONES!!!
I forgot to take a BEFORE photo
but here is the 
AFTER!!!
Last Friday, the newly reupholstered chair was delivered back…
and 
I LOVE IT!!!

Over the weekend…in honor of the NEW chair, we gave the dresser a “LILLY stripe.
only problem…the green line reminds me of FROG tape!
I may need to go with Navy…?
ahhhh…decisions decisions…
thoughts…?
….more to come…
Phoebe’s new Chandelier
FINALLY goes up!

  1. I like the green stripe a lot since it goes so great with pink, yet without a few more green pops, it does seem a little lonely in the room. How about a green pillow in the sweet “new” blue chair? 🙂

    You guys live near Circa? Me too!
