I'm sorry, it just slipped!

I have no motivation.

I start about 20 projects a week, and only finish about 2.

Then I start 20 more, and finish 2.

I've got who-knows-how-many unfinished ongoing projects right now, and I sincerely thought that a road block with this slipper chair would land it sitting in the unfinished ongoing pile. (Note: I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with the legs, so it's technically not FINISHED... But who knows when I'll actually get to that!)







































Somehow, even WITH a road block, I was able to finish in not-too-long. My total investment for this slipper chair?

$15.

No, I'm not missing a zero. FIFTEEN DOLLARS! $9 for the lumber and Just under $6 for an extra cushion (that was my road block, in case you don't follow me on Facebook).

And it looks almost EXACTLY like the ones in my living room that I paid $150 for (except with different fabric, obviously).

Do you want to make one, too? You'll need to make a trip to Lowe's (it might cost you a little more, if you don't have any scraps layin' around). Maybe grab an old curtain that you don't want to hang anymore..?

I'll give you a quick tease to show you how easy it is..





























And then send you over to my post on ana-white.com (i'd put the plans here, but this blog is just not formatted right for plans)

  8. Well please do! :-) I'm working on my second one, right now. They're so quickly built (it's the darned upholstering that takes me forever. I'm not a fabric-lover :-p)
