When Angie sent over her simple and inspiring chair makeover we loved the outcome so much we had to share it. Here’s her letter:
I love your style and your blog. I just got into blogs a few months ago and yours is a must read every day! I’m so excited to share my before and after chair makeover. I purchased it at the Ann Arbor ReUse Center for $5.00. After I removed the seat cushion and a ridiculous number of staples, I patched, sanded and primed the chair. I bought some new foam for the seat on sale at Joann’s and painted the chair with some white trim paint I had on hand from other paint jobs in our house. To cover the seat I bought a half yard of this funky fabric from the monaluna mingle collection on Etsy. Thanks for the daily inspiration! -Angie

Here’s a Friday-the-13th-tastic question for you to ponder: have you ever made a design choice in your home that might be considered superstitious? Do you keep a certain item in a room because you think it’s good luck? Or do you have a particular decorating habit that you can’t break for fear of the “or else…”?
Sure some of these might fall into the category of Fung Shui or general decorating rituals, but we’d still love to hear what you do around your house to avoid bad luck.
