How ’bout an update on the slowest living room reno ever?

Exhibit A – the chair. This is a chair from B’s college days, originally covered in a poop brown canvas. Poop brown no more.

Picked up this crazy  upholstery fabric on the clearance table at Hancock’s – $5/yd or something. Amazing, right? Who does not have a use for red/turquoise, yellow, lime, and white upholstery fabric?

The front is channel quilted with wool batting and the back has a zipper for easy removal and machine wash. Oh, you bet I prewashed this stuff on hot with a high heat dry.

The flokati arrives tomorrow. Perhaps a shot of the new sofa and rug at the end of the week…
