Hope y'all are doing well and had a great weekend.
I'm glad I get to show you this projects before all the Christmas decorating rush starts. Here's a peek at what I've been working on...
It all started when I wanted to make an upholstered bench like this for our foyer. Seems like a very simple one weekend project for Mr. Fanatic and I to do, but the problem is, he has a long honey do/project list already and I didn't want to add to it right now.

I'm a little ~ ok, a lot~ embarrassed to say that I've had these two chairs for like, forever....They've been in my basement for 11 years and I had them in my garage in California for a couple of years before that. I originally found them in my grandmother's basement a couple of years before we moved to North Carolina. I thought if I finished them both the same that I could put them side by side in our foyer and they could suffice instead of a bench.
As you can see, they've been sanded a bit, but that's as far as I got....until now.
Here's what they look like now:
Last Tuesday, I finally made it to Mary Jo's out in Gastonia. I was originally looking for a light linen, but only found this large striped linen.
I also found two other fabrics for pillows I'm going to make for the chairs. The price of fabric sure has gone up. Either that, or I have expensive taste.
The fabric on the right is flocked anywhere you see black..
I can't wait to get started on the pillows!
I'll show you how I transformed these antique chairs some time this week. If you aren't a follower, you can become one by clicking on the Google Friend Connect on my sidebar.
