I Am Back, and Makeovers

First of all, happy new year everyone! As you may have noticed, I've been extremely quiet over the past two weeks. In addition to hosting a Christmas Eve dinner party (whew, ain't I glad that's over! Stressful it was!), hubs and I vacayed in San Francisco and Bay Area for a week. I've been since catching up reading your lovely blogs, as well as putting my head back into planning a few small decor projects.

Before the holidays, in my haste to post the basement pictures, I never got around to post some before-and-after pictures of a couple of makeovers. Anyhow, here they are.

The first up are the cane chairs I scored from KJ.

The second in line are these sad-looking rattan chairs. I remember seeing identical ones from Circa Who, so I couldn't pass such a rather easy yet high-impact up-cycle opportunity.

My next re-upholstery adventure is the French Wing Chair. After much consideration, I've decided to give velvet a try so I picked up 6 meters of this cream velvet fabric. Would it turn out just as I imagined? I guess we shall see. 

And that's it for today. Hope you all have a pleasant working week ahead.
