Chair Before and After

I don’t know about y’all, but I have a hard time finding good fabric.  Maybe it’s the fact that I have a hard time finding good fabric on my budget. Anyhow I have taken to more creative ways to find fabric.  One of my ways is fabric from clothing at thrift stores. One thing to really look for is bag sales.  If you have not ever been to a bag sale you are missing out.  Usually once a month some thrift stores will have all the clothing that you can stuff in a big brown bag for $6!  It’s a great way to buy clothes to experiment with or use for other things. Last time I went I bought this super 70’s dress.  I thought I would have enough guts to wear it, but it turns out that I do not.  Another thrift store find that I had been waiting to work on was a chair I have wanted to reupholster it, but I had been waiting for the perfect fabric.  Then the idea hit me, why don’t I use the dress material to reupholster the chair?  I tried it….and I love it! I hope y’all like it too!
