It’s Earth Day!  I set aside the patterns I’m working on to recover a chair today.  It’s been sitting in my basement for almost a year.  I picked it up at a rummage sale last fall for $6.  It has beautiful workmanship — just needed a good wash and a new pad and fabric for the seat.

Love the curved wood!

And those curved legs!

For now I just gave the wood a good wash in Murphy’s Oil soap and water — perhaps one day I’ll give the wood a proper make-over, but for now, I think it’s still beautiful.

The fabric I choose was a bright fun orange mini houndstooth.  I used just a fat quarter of fabric so I didn’t add much to the cost of the chair.  If you don’t know how to recover a chair, here’s a great tutorial (wink, wink).

Hope you have a great Earth Day!
