Okay, so you got me. I did not transform that ugly blue recliner into this last chair. BUT I made it happen. Beloved brought the recliner home from his mother's house. Ever-hopeful and an optimist at heart, he thought I might let him put it in a guest room so he would have a recliner to call his own. Now we've been married a long time and I know when to bide my time and how to pick my battles. Sweetly, I "allowed" it into the house. A year later, he's never sat in it, has gotten over his need to keep it, and it's "outta here"! I have had this antique recliner sitting in my attic for many years. I used it at one time, but it has just been collecting dust for quite a while. I got it down, dusted it off, and went on a fabric hunt. I knew the exact shade of blue and exactly what I wanted which sometimes makes the search even harder! Five fabric stores, two months, and a great upholsterer later this is what the chair looks like now. I love it! The blue stripes fit into my guest bedroom rennovation perfectly. And yes, that is blue painter's tape you see in the background! I hope by next Monday I can unveil the entire bedroom, but for now head over to Susan's at http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Metamorphosis Monday and give Sally a visit at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for Blue Monday. And,oh yes, be sure to keep your husband off of Craigslist. I gave the recliner to my son and he posted it for sale!
