Long live vintage ....

I am super excited just went to our local school fete and picked up this little chair for $2. I have been thrifting about looking for chairs for the Sew Pretty room (where we will soon be starting classes)

I have already saved some of the beautiful Lecien Fabric for this task, but when I popped the chair in front of all the other bolts, it's as if they were screaming "pick me, pick me!".

On the way home my mind was travelling to all the possibilities with this forgotten chair... I could definitely invisage some retro boys fabric on top and placed in the corner of my boys room.. mmm another project for another day! 

Of course inspiration has to come from somewhere and this awesome mum seems to do just that on a daily basis! 


  1. Oooh! $2, what a steal! Its going to look great. Classes sound like a great idea, look forward to hearing more about them. And yes, Miriam is a total inspiration isn't she.

  2. The red polka dot is screaming at me! Cant wait to see how your chair turns out-the red and green one is wonderful!
