Here it is in its sad little state.....(don't judge....look at the great potential!! )
Recently my husband wanted to clean out the garage, and I knew the chair (which he confirmed!) either needed to be repaired and used, or well, it needed to be repaired and used....shudder the thought of getting rid of it!!!
So I asked my daughter, who will be moving into an apt. in the fall (out of the dorm!) if she wanted to use it, and we decided to get it fixed so she could do so. We picked out a fabric that went with the things she wants to use, I found an upholsterer on Angie's list....and here she is, all prettied up, and ready for the ball!!
Now, I am not sure how much wear it will get in my daughter's room, other than a place to pile clothing, but I am so glad to have it repaired and useable again...makes me sad to think it had to be so long in coming....but I am not getting myself into a guilt trip over this.....now she is pretty again, and will be used. It might have been a better idea to paint it, but if it's used again somewhere else, maybe that will be the case. For now, she looks good again, and is in a repaired state so that she will be useful.
Here she is, in her new gown!!
