We have been a bit busy around here lately participating in a bit of a spring spruce up. We have people over quite regularly and our space is so small (600 square feet) that we are always self editing. The first major thing that needed to be done was I recovered the vintage chair in our living room. It has its original upholstery but it was definitely starting to show its age. I had previously slip-covered this chair for another room years ago and swore off sewing a slipcover for life but found myself forced to cave in since the chair was starting to look real rough. I think it came out some what successfully but I really need to brush up on my sewing skills. I also knocked out some pillows that needed to be re-covered as well. I did two with piping which I View this photo know realizes makes them look so much nicer than the plain ones. I used all fabric I already owned in the stash including this wonderful vintage fabric that I adore. David mentioned how much he liked the pillow fabric as well so we have decided that we are going to use the colors featured on the pillow to decorate a room the next time we move (We are definitely not repainting here!). We also got some new bedsides tables with drawers!!! Hooray for storage. This cleared up so much space on the sides of the bed as well as in our closet oddly enough. Plus there is way less surface area for dog hair to collect on our new ones. They also roll out of the way when cleaning!! (Do you notice an emphasis on cleaning dog hair here? Ugh the shedding.) Other than that things are going okay as David starts to transition to a civilian life.
