I do have a love affair with Chairs, as do many of you I see. So, I thought I would share with you my favorite chair. I found it about 7 or 8 years ago in a thrift shop for about $28.00 and fell in love with the pretty shape. It was also the perfect size for me. At the time it was a sagey green, with some well placed spills and stains. I paid no never mind as I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I've been a huge fan of Waverly Fabrics since the early 80's so I went straight to the fabric store to purchase the fabric I'd looked at for ages in the shop. There wasn't quite enough, so the shopkeeper called over to Santa Barbara and they had enough to send. I took it to my favorite upholsterer downtown and the result is what you see. He also finished a $5.00 footstool to match. I shop a lot in Ventura County and Santa Barbara and believe me the prices can really get up there. Now it's a one of a kind custom made for my tush. The pretty willow lantern you see in the other photo is a discount store find, for $8.00, they had two and I snatched them up a couple summers ago. I really love them.
