the chair: progress report

it's finished!
see before photos here
i can't believe it's already done! i spent most of my weekend working on it, but since i approached everything the "angie" way {wing it as you go, and be willing to do, redo and re-redo things} i just figured it would take awhile. 


and while there are lots of imperfections, i am thrilled with the result! i love the way it turned out, and now it's not such an eyesore {hubby says it never was, but i always had a serious problem with it.}

i think it's my favorite chair now. i added extra padding to the inside of the arms, so it's actually a lot more comfortable now.

the kitties wasted no time in reclaiming it. 

yeah, they're totally ridiculous, and i'm ridiculously excited about how this turned out :)

  19. Such an awesome chair! I experiment the same way with trial and error, and redoing things over and over until it looks right. It's the best way in my opinion! :)
