Wow! it looks great. Love the bolster pillow too. I could relax in that little corner. Nice job!

Linda, it looks amazing! I need you at my house to help me with my antique rocker. I still haven't gotten up the nerve to start re-covering it yet. After all the burlap webbing and staples and tacks I am not quite ready to face the chair again. I finallllllly finished my porch re-do. Still waiting on the cushions to arrive but I think I can say Enuf!! also. If you need a dose of black and white stripes come on by,Kathysue

Looks great! I have 4 vintage pieces in my living room that need to be recovered right now. I am lazy though and will just be saving the money to pay someone else to do it!! :)

Best,

Barbara said...

You are so funny! I'm here!

Great job on the chair. Congratulations. Now for Pete's sake don't let anyone sit on it with a glass of red wine! (I say this as someone who has a white sofa)

Linda, you are too cool! Gorgeous job on the chair...I thought we were looking at a black-and-white print last time you were working on a chair...I'm confused. But your living room is looking DIVINE...LOVE the black-painted window frames---please don't cover them, you have no need...just some side curtains to soften the edges.

Deborah said...

Oh Linda, I'd come watch paint dry with you in your house any time! LoVe the Lil butt chair. OOooo, I'm bringing the Margi's.

Love the nailhead trim! That just makes the chair! I'm sorry you're having a problem viewing some of my photos, I think it might be a browser issue, I use Google Chrome and Firefox, am going to head over to Internet Explorer to see if that may be where the problem lies! Thank you for letting me know, Linda!

Holly Goes Lightly said...

Jane Coslick said...

You did the chair yourself? You are hired!! What color for your living room? Don't forget to turn on country music while you paint..the paint flows right along with the music....

Perfection! Just as I knew it would be!

The lighting is amazing, Linda!
