If there's one thing that we are not lacking, its chairs! We have lots! We probably have too many, and are likely to buy more just because...
But my favourite is a little old nursing chair that has been passed down from my grandparents. It has spent the last 12 years covered in blankets and cushions, and been a dumping ground for all sorts in the girls' room but now I want it back!
It fits in our new bedroom, but needs sprucing up. My grandpa re-covered it, but despite the emotional attachment, I think now is the time to give it a beautiful facelift.
OK, so it is currently home to our, as yet, un-hung lampshade; we are waiting to get the bedroom furniture and then this will be the crowning glory!
The Sanderson's 50's collection is possibly one of the most brilliant I have seen; although red is not my colour, this picture sums it up...
My dilemma, for which your opinions would be much appreciated, is whether to go the whole 9 yards (or however much I'd need) with a full on pattern, or to go for a more 'subtle' velvet - if a bright turquoise is subtle, and then forever and a day, make gorgeous cushions and quilts to compliment and update the look... I think I just answered my own question eh!?
Before you ask, I will not be attempting this myself. My grandpa was a blimming genius as far as I'm concerned, and if I am going to be spending over £30/m, I won't be going anywhere near with my scissors!
