Hello, everyone!
Today I am sharing with you another drop cloth project.
Yes, I know! Enough with the drop cloth, right? LOL
Well, it is such a great and durable fabric that I have been hooked on it for a while now and we have used it 
all through out our home for different projects.

This time around, the old chair in out son's room was the victim. :)

It was old, very old and blue. Never looked right in that room, but he kept using it, so there it stayed.

As we are started getting this room ready to welcome him and his new family home, I was just going to put 
this chair on the curb until my husband said " let me see what I can do with it".

So there it went, into the garage, where he worked on it for a full weekend.
He stripped the chair down to the frame and added to it new foam we already had.

And after ironing one of the drop cloths we had left at home, he started recovering the chair,

Meanwhile, I painted the legs with oil rubbed bronze.

And by the end of the weekend, it looked like a new chair.

Using the last bit of drop cloth I had at home, I made some new drapes for the windows.

We are still moving things around in the room and making upgrades to make it as cozy as we can for them.
Soon we will be shopping for baby furniture. Yay!
Can you tell I am excited? :)

Another project finished! Thank you all for your visit.
See you soon!
