Happy Friday!

From Goodwill to Glam!

Well hello there!  I feel like we have so much to catch up on.  It's been a hectic couple of weeks, but with the Fall semester over, my last client project of 2014 complete, I'm back!
Today I MUST share with you one of my recent furniture transformations. I've been known to take a furniture with good bones and give it a new life through reupholstery and a fresh perspective, but I'm often doing that for my client's homes.  Well this time, it was all about me. 
My good friend Jennifer sent me a text about a year ago with this photo attached.  
She was out shopping at her neighborhood Goodwill and noticed that this piece looked a lot like my sofa.  I immediately inquired about the price.  When she responded with $14.99, I couldn't type "GET IT!" quick enough.
I'll be honest, it sat in my garage for nearly a year, before I finally found the right place for it and the perfect fabric.  Sometimes these things take a while.  Patience is key.  It wasn't until the night Baity's Custom Upholstery came to pick it (and another chair) up that I got really excited about the transformation.
I selected a velvet and cotton cheetah print.  Yes, a bit of a departure for me but I felt like my living room needed a little fun.   
I decided to up the prep factor with a contrasting welt in a rich gold I used previously on a throw pillow.  I almost flipped when I got this progress picture from the upholsterer.
This was going to be good.
I was right!  I'm obsessed with this chair.  It is exactly what the space needed.
I was obsessed with the bones from the jump.  I'm sure it had something to do with the fact that I'm a sucker for a Chippendale leg. The fabric is just to DIE for and add to that the contrast piping and I think I 've died and gone to chair heaven. 
Oh, did I mentioned it's comfortable too?

 I LOVE THIS CHAIR!  So, what do you think?  Would you have scooped up this deal or just passed it by without giving it a second look? 

Until later this week....
