Progress on the chair front

Some more progress to report on the chair front! (Are you getting sick of this project yet? I kind of am, so I wouldn't blame you!)

This week I sanded down all the exposed wood on my chairs and painted it a very pale grey (Martha Stewart's Sharkey Grey, in case you're curious). I'm obsessed with this color, and have started fantasizing about painting our bathroom this shade, too!

I also went to a fantastic fabric outlet, Freddy Farkel's in Watertown, MA, to purchase material. I love all the reviews on yelp complaining about the rude service. Old lady fabric store employees are always pretty rude, from what I can tell. Anyway, the warehouse is amazing, with a lot fun, modern prints for very good prices. In their discount aisle, I found the top fabric with grey and purple that I'll use for the chairs. It was on sale for only $7.50 a yard! I also got the grey and white one underneath to make a few pillows.

I'm sort of terrified to find myself at the fabric cutting and stapling stage, but I shall plow ahead, nerves and all. Fingers crossed!


  1. I love the paint color you chose! Can't wait to see how it all turns out!

  2. No fear! You're going to rock the cutting and the stapling -- can't wait to see how it all turns out.

  3. Don't you love MS paints? I love the colors and their names!
    And your fabric choices are great! I'm so excited to see the chair with that lovely purple floral fabric.
