Animal print meets shabby chic

I have an obsession with chairs....The detail on some are so intricate and the perfect fabric can change a piece from night to day.  They look great in any room of the house....I have even used them in the bathroom holding a galvanized tin filled with hand towels....

A few weeks ago I spotted this lonely soul at Goodwill for $3.  The caning on the seat was ripped, but I knew it was an easy fix....

Add some white paint.....

A fabulous fabric.....

And here you have it....

Snow leopard print + shabby white paint color = an eclectic design

Happy Holiday's!!!

  4. My heart breaks for you, Lisa! To lose your blog is like losing a part of yourself. Thought I had lost mine a few weeks back, but finally I found an older version in blogger and quickly brought it up to date as best I could.

  6. So sorry for your losses - just devastating!
    Would love it if you would consider setting up a Facebook page, as that is how I follow most of my blogs now, and it makes it so easy to "Share" and really spread things socially. :)

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
