A Walk on the Wild Side

I love arm chairs. LOVE them. Can't resist them at Goodwill and garage sales. I love a pair of arm chairs even more, but that's a rare find. I picked this one up a few months ago and hadn't been inspired....until this week. I found this fabric in the remnant bin...I don't typically love animal prints....but this is elegantly understated. The paint is Heirloom White by Rustoleum. Gosh I love Heirloom White!!

Take a look at the before photo:

Yikes! Outdated to say the least! I guess that's what $6.99 will get ya!

But here's what some spray paint, new fabric and a little elbow grease will get you!

What do you think?

My first blog post....go easy on a girl!

I mean, up until 6 months ago, I loathed the word blog. I really did. In my mind, blogs were for peeps who wanted to talk only about themselves and what they ate that day. Then I got bit by the home decorating bug. You know the one...the one that has you searching the internet day and night for DIY decorationg ideas? It was then that my mind was changed forever about blogging. I found SO much inspiration and information from the blog world, that I decided
to start my own. If I can inspire even one person the way I have been inspired, it will be worth it!

So stay tuned ...I have a garage full of blank pieces just waiting to be fabulous!
