Make My Week - Disco Chair

Well I have decoupaged another awful chair - this time into a frenzy of disco awesomeness - the before photo is somewhere in-between the old and new computer and frankly it just feels like way.too.much effort to locate it - so you'll just have to believe me!

I think I picked up this fabric from Lincraft (cheap quilting fabric that was almost transparent!)

The seat required re-strapping underneath which required some effort especially as I have no staple gun here.

The disco glitter vinyl is a little thick for my liking but as I am limited to Spotlight and Lincraft in the city - neither of which seem to be specialising in cotton laminate - well, needs must and all that.

I do like the triangles though.

This wee guy wanted to get in on the act so you can see it modelled on a real five year old.

I like it.

I actually have another chair that is ready for a makeover and now that I am armed with an electric sander - oh er! (Which came accompanied with a card from Flip and The Atlas saying we love you so much we bought you a sander - actually Flip wrote it and he included the price in the card to emphasise the real depths of their love. He also commented afterwards, "I think this will be an invaluable gift, don't you?").

Joining in with the fabulous Leonie who this week sent me crocheted bunting for my bike basket (and it arrived the day Ma n Pop left and I was in need of some love), yes she is that lovely.

 Show & Tell Thursday's

love you more than a little disco in the dining room xxxx
