Velvet Inspirations and a homemade prairie christmas

Still working on home decor,  I am waiting for curtains and couch to come so in the meantime I am pulling apart a few chairs that I am going to reupholster myself

I wanted to show you my inspirations to do velvet chairs




 The first three images are Rachel Ashwell Velvet Chairs and pillows

The next few images were on pinterest, My daughter prefers the pink over the blue I am deciding today what color to hand dye my white velvet.




This purple chair is also Rachel Ashwell, I adore this chair!!

So yesterday I was armed with a twenty five percent off all items before noon coupon and then a fifty percent off any one item.......at JoAnn's fabric.  I loaded cart with all the rest of the necessary items to finish my decor projects.....between everything already being on sale and them honoring my coupons I got lots of lush velvet, curtain rods to hang all my curtains 36 rods.....for sunroom kitchen and hall windows.....yarn for puffy round pillows to crochet.....round pillow inserts and much more for fifty percent off the whole purchase, I do like buying things new from time to time but I do get a thrill when I do a thrifty DIY


I have one french cane back chair and a pair of the french chairs shown.  last night I stripped one french chair of the 1980 blue fabric and a ton of staples....lots of hard work here but hope to have family heirlooms when done!


We are also making our Stockings and  ornaments and getting tree this week lots of projects in the works for a very prairie/shabby Christmas



Have a Wonderful Week!!
