What is old shall be made new again…

Remember the ugly, dirty Queen Anne side chair?  This one?

Well, my sister and I made a trade.  She needed a chair for her daughter’s apartment and I needed a tall white bookcase for the guest room.  My niece asked my sister to decorate the apartment for her.  The only thing she requested was “zebra”.  Here’s what my sister had done to the chair.

Is this gorgeous or what?  (BTW – photo was taken in my sister’s breezeway – not my niece’s apartment!)  My sister has an upholstery guy that did it for her since she just didn’t have the time to attempt it herself.  She found the fabric on sale at Joann’s and bought enough to do the chair and pillows. 

I shoulda kept the chair!!

OOOOOh baby! I LOVE the chair. Yep, shoulda kept it...but I'm sure your neice will love it forever. If she doesn't, tell her you want it back when she is tired of it....and you can trade her something else.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
be blessed,

Cool! Love that zebra print. Wish I had the courage to splash some animal print around the house. Your niece has style.
