Our 18 month old grandson is not quite ready for the bed, but he loved the baseball and basketball games. They are now in our entry hall closet; the toy closet. The bed is in the garage. I need to find a crib mattress for that.
There are 3 drawers behind the t-ball stand. One of those became the Shoe Shine Kit.
Do you see that little chair behind the bed. It is so cute. I am not kidding, it was just sitting at the curb waiting for me. That chair was in great shape. The upholstery was even okay, just vinyl and ugly.
Now upholstery is a new endeavor for me. I have recovered chair cushions
but not an entire piece of furniture.
I started looking through my stash of curtain and upholstery fabric
and with my sister’s help, decided on the blue stripe.
Just one word of caution before you start a project like this…don’t take the chair completely apart unless you really know how to put it back together. I should have taken pictures of each step or just taken it apart a little at a time.
Well, here it is.
I think it is beautiful and I only have a couple of pieces left that I can’t figure out. I still need to put on the hinge for the seat, but I couldn’t wait to show you.
Someday I may take the time to learn how to take better pictures, but there are only 24 hours in the day and
I find other things more exciting.
This is where I party:
