Take one ugly chair. $5 from the local Sallies - I bought two.
pretty fabric from here
and gorgeous laminate from the same place
I ended up teaching 2 full days of this skill at short notice recently.
It's a slow process but for me the final result is so worth it. I really like the fabric decoupage effect. (I have a lot of them on my pinterest board actually but I do love mine very much - as one should with the things one makes. I've added some of my own too)
There are mistakes to see if you want to look for them but I like them for the overall effect.
I love how the fabric on the chair is cars and the fabric on the seat is Babushka's ..... wee Bounce likes it a lot too. He calls it his chair because he chose the car fabric with me in the shop.
It was amazing to see what people achieved in the day - I love watching people's creative pursuits. This is some of their progress..... none of them are finished pieces but this is what can be done in a special day dedicated to creative pursuit.
I always feel so privileged to be able to create with others and to see their ideas unfold. Also I am loving Kirsty's discussion on creative ideas. I agree that there are times I feel I have come up with a really original idea but then suddenly you see someone else is doing something similar.
For me it's about our touch that makes it ours and I never follow a pattern exactly anyway.... I like the sharing of ideas.... maybe it would feel differently if it was my livelihood.... it's good to think about.
