My 3 Monsters: Voila!

Voila!

I know I said I'd wait until after camp to do the chair, but it was just sitting there taunting me.  I couldn't resist the challenge.  Also, the fabric I wanted was on sale for $3.50 a yard.  I decided to go with the black and white checks.  I just had to go with my gut on this one.  My initial vision for this was black and white.  Maybe if I was doing a slipcover I would have gone ahead with the t-shirt idea, but I wanted to make sure I would LOVE this chair forever.  And I do.  I Lu-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-ve it!  It really ties the room together.  If you look closely you can tell that it's my first attempt at reupholstery -- little puckers in places that a professional would never leave -- but I am pretty proud of myself.  (If I do say so myself.)  It's maybe my favorite thing that I own right now. 

Pretty amazing, huh?  The kids call it the throne.  I like to sit across the room and look at it, but it has become Dylan's favorite TV-watching chair.  No, it doesn't even face the TV.  He likes to lay across it with his legs propped up on the wing and that squishy t-shirt pillow under his head.  Kids . . .
