Chairs and a Fireplace

I have many projects that I am trying to complete, but it is taking me a while. I bought a matching chair and rocker when we were in Canton, TX a few months ago. I knew that I wanted to paint and recover them. Before the move to the new house I painted both chairs with a baby blue then a gray on top. I also purchased the fabric online that I knew I wanted to cover them in. I finally had time this week to distress and recover. I love the way that they came out. Eventually these will be on my back porch/sun room sitting area. 

This the the original chair

And here are a few pictures of the completed chair
Please excuse my outdated floors... 

I have another dilemma with the fireplace in my house. 
This is what it looked like when we moved in...

And this is the fireplace once I painted it

I found the stand and the ceramic wood in the shed outside. I am thinking about trying to antique it to make it blend in with the rest of the room. Maybe I will experiment this weekend since it will be too wet outside to do anything else. Hope everyone has a good Labor Day Weekend.

  1. Hey, thanks for sharing with us, and yes, I think the fireplace is much nicer now :)
