A shabby chic chair up-cycle {anddd please go and vote!!!}

Hello friends!  I am excited to share my latest project with you!!!
A chair up cycle and some fabric complete a corner of my bedroom this time!


American Crafter has been such a great inspiration and push for me to do projects I have been putting off, case and point------
I FINALLY got around to up-cycling this old chair!!!
Remember FOREVER ago when I shared a post about which garage sale finds you would have taken or left?!?!  Well this guy has been in the garage for months now....


 I found this now shabby chic chair at a garage sale for five dollars this summer andddd in reality I probably over paid for it at the time because WOW was it in bad shape! 
---but with some fabric and motivation it is now a chair I will treasure!  


Andddd since I was having fun with the chair I got excited to create the perfect space for it.


I also took some time and made a matching framed quote on the same fabric I used for the chair
The quote is a reminder to me, that home is wherever my husband is (since we spent the last year apart so it is SUPER meaningful to me!) & for those of you who know me and my crafting I love anything that has meaning!!!


What do you think?!
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how uncomplicated it was to re-finish the chair---are you interested in the "how-to-photos"??

It's gorgeous, Jaime! Wow! I have a very similar chair I also picked up at a garage sale for $5 - but I'm scared to dive in and try to reupholster it. I'd love to see how you did it!

Seriously I am not being biased...I think your project is the best. I'd say the suitcase is a good second, but you not only did a great job with your fabric project, I think you also have the best pictures of it. The pics look so warm and inviting. You took it the extra step with the framed art. Really awesome job and you deserve to win it all!!!!

This is truly SO beautiful! I'm in love. Now if only I could score a hideously ugly chair for $5 ((and convince my husband that I NEED it))... ;)
