The Sewing Project

We have been in our new home for a while now, but I am still decorating.
One of our guest rooms....The Blue Room (as we refer to it), was in need of another bedside table. I don't know about you, but I am not a fan of rooms where there is only a table on one side of the bed.  Anyway, I found this small black console table that could also double as a small desk, large enough for someone that might bring along their laptop. Hmm now I am in need of a chair.
Well, wouldn't you know it. I am already in possession of the perfect chair....Which I will paint (the wood ),black. I know, you purist are gasping...and the seat gets a bit hard.... so it will  also need a cushion.
So, I made a pattern from tissue paper, found a coordinating fabric...
and off to my sewing/laundry room ...where I did my best making a chair pad. The only sewing instructions I have had is half a year in homemaking class, in the eighth grade...The other half of the year was cooking, which may explain my culinary talents :)
and viola! I still need to stuff it with fiber fill....and Tom hasn't painted the chair yet. For some reason he doesn't trust me with paint.
My next project may be a bulletin board to hang above the little desk...or possibly to go out and take pictures for this blog!
I hope that you are having a fun weekend....Janey


  1. I understand your need to paint the chair black, but I'm one of those purists. Lol!! I wouldn't touch that beautiful chair with paint with a 10ft pole. Your cushion sure is pretty, though. I love that fabric.

  2. I admire your creativity Janey, well done.

  3. You and your sisters are all so crafty, and I mean this in the nicest way!!

  4. It's so much fun doing projects like this, you created a super little spot here for a future guest Janey.
