I’s week five for the ORC. Oh my goodness! Next week is reveal time, you all!
So today I am giving you a little update on the room.
I found a Danish chair. A fabulous Mid Century modern Danish chair on Craigslist!
And here is the best thing, for only $50!!! What a deal! Well, I was crazy enough to drive an hour and a half to get this chair but I thought it was worth it. I have been chair hunting for a long time. I was almost at the point that I have no choice but buying one of those modern chairs for $700. I already overspent my budget with the sofa so I tried really hard to find something that was more affordable. And my waiting and hunting paid off…I found the CHAIR!!
Look at this pretty!
Surprisingly the chair was in a really great shape, no damage to it at all. The cushions were like new, and they did not smell. I wasn’t really crazy for the cushions but I thought I could sew a new cover for them, with my amateur sewing knowledge.
So I did.
For some reason I was really attracted to this pretty blue fabric.
If you remember for my room plan you know that there was no blue on my mood board. Nope. But I kept coming back to this blue shade at the fabric store so I bought it.
I sew basic things before but I never sew a cushion with zippers. I say, don’t be afraid of sewing, it really is not that hard. I was able to make the cushions almost to be perfect-)
I have to admit that this shade of ble seemed a little too bright at first but I kept looking at a big picture of the room and it looked great.
Fact :I can not live without colors. The blue added a nice pop of color in the room. I just can’t.
What do you think of my new treasure? That pillow that I made out of a table placemat was asking for its place on that chair. 🙂
The room is coming togehter nicely, all I have left is to add some artwork. Phew. It was a busy 5 weeks. I hope you will check back next week to see the reveal. Oh and there is going to be a great GIVEAWAY, too, so be sure come and play! You can check other linking participants for the ORC over at Calling it Home today.
