One of the best things about white upholstery is that it takes so little to give it a new look. My bedroom chair is a perfect example. It's a great little slipcovered piece that we picked up at Ikea two years ago.
The bedroom in our first house was so tiny, we were barely able to fit a double bed and two nightstands in the space. When we moved to our new home, we were so excited to have a bigger bedroom. I always loved the idea of a sitting area in the master. It seemed so grown up and a little bit decadent. Living in this tiny beach community, I never thought I would have a space large enough to fit one, but we got lucky with this house.
Of course, as it is with many things in life, once I got my chair, it sort of lost its charm. Oh don't get me wrong, it was lovely to look at, but more often than not, the only thing that sat on it, was laundry!
So when I spotted a pretty green fabric at the store, while shopping for costuming material, I thought it might be just the pick me up that chair needed to regain its swagger. I was right. I whipped up a quick pillow cover, borrowed a furry throw from the living room sofa and boom, I had the most inviting little reading nook.
It really is amazing what one small accessory and a little bit of color can do to a space!
Of course, the sewing took me so much longer than it should have, as I got into a literal tangle with my machine ~ again, but that is a story for another day! Next week actually, it's a story for next week!
Until then, I will be curled up in my cozy little chair, catching up on my reading, staring at my tulips and ignoring all the snow outside. Dreamy!
