What a difference a little awning fabric can make ...

If you follow my blog or the One Room Challenge you know that I'm renovating a client's entire first floor.
I'm not going to spoil the entire week four update but I had to share this itty bitty chair makeover. Because it's simply stunning and the chairs arrived today!

Before Picture of chair


Now here's the after
Now that's a crazy good makeover. This chair used to sit in some corner of their house --not no mo'!
These chairs will be used as host and hostess chairs for their breakfast table --nobody is puttin' these babies in the corner. They're simply just too good.
Do you know what's even better?
They're covered in awning fabric. You can bleach them and wash them with soap and water and for kicks stick them outside during a hurricane and they'll look like you just bought them yesterday.
When I decorate rooms I ALWAYS take into consideration who lives in them and these cool cats have four busy kids with tons of friends -- these chairs are INDESTRUCTIBLE. They will look as crisp and clean five years from now as they do today.
Here's some other fun stuff going on in this reno...
And even more...
Can't decide if I'm going to style the shelves in all white plates as seen here.
or with this funky new collection from Crate and Barrel.

What do you think -- all white or incorporate the blue?? Of course will get rid of the grandmomish-looking white plates.
Feedback please!!

Like this post or even if you just like the chair --- share it on facebook! and PIN IT!!!! Go ahead I dare you!!!
