I don't often see something that I can't live without, but when my friends Stacy And Sissie both posted this picture on their blogs...I simply had to have that fabric!
I lost my mind looking for it, I Googled all over the place, pink toile, angel toile, etc, etc,....Then there it was..I purchased it from Carousel Designs and took a sigh of relief when it was only $11.90 a yard, because I had to have it at any cost.
I wanted to use it to redo my dining room
I didn't totally hate the dining room as it was, but my....How should I say this..."Fluffier" friends, did not feel that the vintage folding chairs were sturdy enough
So, I found these chairs for $10 a piece at the antique store
And with a little love, heirloom white paint, and 2" foam cushions..... I have to add, that it took forever to work the corners of the cushions so I wouldn't have any creases or bunching of fabric...Hum, maybe 1" foam would have been OK!
My vision came to life...Don't you love it when that happens!
But, then I didn't love the window bench
So, with a little help from Billie
I decided to slip cover it
Then it all came together!
I have a small house in downtown Orlando, so we aren't talking a huge dining room here, but the antique table opens up and I have seated (Squeezed) 8 people in my little dining room.
Oh, in case you were wondering, I purchased the rug many years ago at Target, I wish I had bought two!
My Mom thinks my dining room would be perfect if I would just paint that old chippy table LOL!
Baby boy is visiting from DC, so if I don't get back to you right away it's because I'm busy waiting on him hand and foot...Something Mom's do when grown kids visit!
