Chair Project

My parents bought two matching rockers from Tell City in the seventies. This one was recovered several years ago by a professional reupholsterer. It's okay, but very dark and still quite Early American looking.

This one still has its original skirt. EXTREMELY Early American!

Here is the original chair with its skirt removed. It has been sanded.

Here is one chair primed. The white primer gives a hint of what they will look like painted white or another light color.

I liked the idea of a black and white toile on the back cushion and skirt, with a pink seat cushion, like the pretty little chair Kelly @ Much To Do With Nothing did. But I want to get away from the Early American look so I think a black and white, or brown and white Anthropologie type print would be better. Not quite to the point of choosing fabrics, though.

Wild Animals in My Closet!

When I put on my Easter shoes, they hurt my feet. So I took them back today and got these!

I don't need them. I don't even know what I will wear with them. But I love them!

I almost bought pink plaid peep toe pumps, but the plaids weren't placed the same on both shoes and I knew it would really bother me.

I have gone shoe crazy. Zebra stripes with pink heels! What do I wear with them?
