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!
