Another update to my craft room
hi!
I've been valiantly searching for the perfect chair to go in my craft room at my sewing desk, and after many months I finally found one at an estate sale for only $8! It needed to be completely redone, but it was sturdy and the right height, without arms or anything to get in the way of sewing. I spent all day today redoing it, and I think it turned out pretty cool!
Before: Horrible brown paint on chair and stained red velvet cover

After: Painted to match the shelves and thread holder, awesome blue velvet with silver swirlies for cover.

Total cost: $8, I already had the paint and the fabric!

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Pretty!! I envy your craft room. I have a craft basket, although it it really just for knitting, since that is my only craft (vice?).
