The Christmas Chair

Remember my pumpkin chair? The one I painted for
The plan was to reupholster it. So, Cindy, the owner of Earth Mama's & the chair, bought some fabric. We got together and laid the fabric out to decide where to start cutting. And, as we looked at it with dread, Cindy said, "don't you want to just paint it again?" To which I said, "yes!" Upholstery is hard!
So, the pumpkin chair has been transformed to a Christmas chair. I simply painted over the pumpkins and turned them into ornaments.
The chair greets customers as they enter the store. Plus it gives the men a place to sit while their ladies shop!
Here's how the chair has progressed...
Hmmm... what will it be next?
Stay tuned. I have a feeling I'm not finished painting this chair. At least I have until January to decide what to do next.
Any ideas?

  1. You are a painting fool (in a good way). I can see some beautiful Spring flowers in her future. LOVE the ornaments!


  2. that's a very classy seasonally suitable chair! Inspired : )

  3. I love that chair!! What about Valentine's Day? Great job!

  4. The New Year baby should be next! I cannot believe someone has not insisted on buying the chair even though it is not for sale.

  5. What a great idea for a shop - the themed chair! Love it! I'm thinking champagne glasses, a clock, some streamers, and 2015 for the next theme.

  6. Great transformation Virginia. I bet it is the talk of the shop! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Brilliant idea! You'll have to squish the ornaments into hearts for Valentine's Day!

  8. Thank you for bringing the chair to Make It Monday. It is such a beauty.

  9. Oh this is too awesome! Snowflakes for January or cute mittens and scarf would be appropriate for Chicago!

  10. OK I loved the pumpkin chair and didn't think it was possible but love this more! Featuring when my link party opens up tonight!
