I feel comfortable calling it done...

Remember my $16 Ikea chair (I'm still jealous of my sister's $4 chair)

I bought some "crafty" fabric. I'm not sure why I loved this fabric so much...I wanted red...and I think I found humor in the fact that I would be covering my craft chair with scissor fabric...

some batting for cush...


the cutest little assistant...

a new (okay, it was new) but cutesy chair...
now I have somewhere to sit in my craft closet...


**********

This past Saturday, when Mr. T went to Lowe's to buy a few more things to finish the craft closet, he found this piece of wood for $1 in the scrap wood...so he bought it along with some cork pieces...

add a little batting and fabric...

some ribbon and upholstery nails

...and the craft closet is complete...

(Ohhhhhh...let's just remind what it looked like before first:)


...ok...I still have to do the curtains and the printer will be going in the big blank space to the left and I might add something to the empty spaces below the bottom shelves. You can't see them, but the cricut and sewing machine are off behind the wall on the right...could I HAVE any more workspace...I just smile every time I walk in there!

It's only February 3rd and I am moving on to the guest room...maybe I will finish my February challenge after all?:)

WOW!! I love the new chair! I have to agree with you! I love the fabric! I am a sucker for anything red! So darn cute with that fabric! The craft closet looks great! The best part about it is you can CLOSE the door and leave things just the way you want to! Love it!
Great work Mama Thompson from Mama Holli

Nice job, it's looking great! Did you get rid of the Sizzix I thought I saw in your first post?

Mama Thompson said...

Thanks for all the nice comments! And Katie...I still have the sizzix...I have debated a ton over whether to get rid of it or not (since I have the cricut), but I can't seem to part with it:)
