Show and Tell Friday

It's Friday and I have a finish so I'm joining in Amy's fun.
As promised here is the chair for my daughter's room. I am so happy with how it turned out. It is going to look so cute in front of her vanity. I can just see her sitting there looking into her mirror. Does she see how beautiful she is? See her dreaming. Does she know how great she is? Forgive me a little sentimentality. Here is the before picture. Oh what a difference.
Alex in all his manly wisdom, when asked how he liked the chair said "Well it looks padded now. It's not going to hurt your butt when you sit on it." Men are so practical. So glad for DD who will be thrilled with how cute it is.

  1. This is so beautiful! I would love to cover my dining room chairs, but they must be superglued to the frame, because I can't take the cushions off!

  17. I love it! You did such a beautiful job. Your daughter is sure to give you big hugs for that one!

    p.s. is it too late to spray paint the frame pretty pink or white? that would just put the icing on the cake. =)
