Ohhh-Kaaaay!! Here's the result on the chairs! I'm really pleased, although I think the pattern could/should have been centered a bit more on the chair back. - am I a tad OCD, YES! But, really, the overall workmanship is great, and the padding, etc. have been completely restored, so they're good as new!
So, I never got any feedback on the pillows and throw I picked up in Rio. Do you think they work? Did I overdo it on the yellow? As in too matchy-matchy? I was questioning my instincts when I saw this picture from the Wish magazine website - a totally-perfect representation of my idea! Of course, I'll be minus the fab lucite coffee table and white (read: not child-friendly) rug, but otherwise, I think I'm getting warm. Thoughts?
I have yet to order any fabric for this other side chair...
Additionally, there's the lamp...I'll keep the base (the harp design complements the della fabric), but clearly, the red shade must bid adieu - but what should be the replacement? A plain white shade will blend with the wall, and be TOTALLY BORING. Should I find yet another fabric to cover the shade? Try to paint it? Any of you seen anything inspiring lately for DIY lamp redos?
And that's where we stand today....I figure we're about half-way through - which in Brazilian time, means we're done - Ha!
Editor's Note: One last thing...in my haste to post the other day, I incorrectly labeled the name and link of the Hospice to which I will make a post-jewelry sale donation (BTW: Sale was a success!) The organization that I am partial to is Hospice of South Texas. The angels on Earth (as I see them) of this Hospice cared for my Grandmother. She would be 82 this Tuesday.
