My Cozy Little Nook

Don't you just love a little cozy nook?  Someplace to relax and take a moment for yourself....



I don't have the largest bedroom, but once I saw this chair I knew I needed to give it a little makeover and then find a spot for it in my room. 


I bought it awhile ago, so I am not 100% sure on this, but I think I paid $6 for it.  It had some stains on the seat and some markings on the arms.  No problem since I was planning on painting it and recovering it.

I didn't apparently take a picture in between start and finish.  But, here is the finished chair...


Isn't it beautiful?  I might be a little biased, but I am just in love with how it turned out.  Plus, I got to use my new double welting foot to make the covered rope trim.


How did I ever live without this foot before?


Check back soon for the tutorial on my fun rose petal jersey pillow....

  8. Hi, stopping over and following on the Thursday blog hop. What an incredible transformation!! I can't believe that is even the same chair, it looks great! I should give this a try on a couple of my small dining chairs, I don't think I am ready to try a bigger project yet, but yours is sure inspiring. Have a great day :)
