I bet you think this post is about you.
The title of this post isn't directed to you, it's directed here.
Y'see, I finished the chair for the new play room table, and all the frustration I felt when trying to figure out the perfect chair in my last post was totally worth it, don'tcha think?
My friend London and I had picked out this fabric from Hobby Lobby, because I was planning on reupholstering my window seat cushion (before walking in on my daughter sitting extremely uncomfortably at the original play room table), and this was my first choice in fabric.
Let me tell you, it looked terrible in this room, on my window seat.
So we picked out a coordinating fabric, because I knew that I still wanted to use this one in this room, and I reupholstered the window seat cushion.
Which, I guess isn't completely off-topic, since I am talking about seating in the play room, but I want to go back to the chair.
I wanted a swoop chair because.. Well, I just love them.
And I wanted it to be low-backed because it's a teeeeeeeny space and doesn't need something so visually heavy.
I had a very good idea of what I wanted, but couldn't find anything that was "it".
Do you want to know what that means?
It either means that it's genius, but no one else has caught on!
That it's a terrible idea. And you should run for the hills before attempting it. Because.... it's a terrible idea...
I was so scared that it was the latter, but I pulled up my big girl tool belt and started it anyway.
You've already seen this
If you follow me on Facebook. It was the closest thing I could find to the image I had in my head, but I wasn't sure if I loved it or hated it....
But trekked forward and made this vanity-type chair.
Let me tell you, I think it's perfect for this spot.
And the big kid loves it, too..!
This was quite the build, let me tell you. And this post is so long now that I doubt you can sit through me giving instructions, but I'll see if I can work with someone who'll be able to draw up plans for this.
And then instructions on upholstering it.
Ohhhh, upholstering... Not my best skill....
Of course I'll keep you updated! Do you love swoop chairs as much as I do? How are you on upholstering? Do instructions for this interest you at all?
