Kicked to the curb…
Everyone in my family knows that me and Jon love finding things in other’s people trash. Normally on a Sunday night we get into the car and under the cover of night we start driving around to see what we can find. My sisters find this hysterical and always ask me to bring a video camera with me. I have yet to do that, but I think perhaps it might be funny to see so stay tuned. Hopefully I’ll talk Jon into it!
A couple of days ago on our way home Jon spotted a huge pile of furniture bits and pieces on a neighbors curb. After some quick and discreet moves this lovely lady made to our house.
Isn’t she pretty? I’ve been on the look out for a new office chair and she will bit the bill. Yes she is in a sad state, but after some TLC she will be amazing!
This is the desk where she will be used:
Here are some of the accent colors/fabrics in the room:
Close up of sofa fabric:
Now the question has to be what type of fabric do I use to recover the chair?
I’ve always loved polka dots and I don’t really have any in my home.
These have caught my eye:
I could pick up some of the green in the sofa fabric:
Or go neutral, but fun with this latte color. I could get a jolt color and paint the chair legs something fun!
A favorite of mine is always orange so of course I’m considering this as well.
Another way to go would be for a more geometric fabric like these:
Or go more simply and classic with a stripe. Plus it’s probably the only room in the house where I can get away with PINK!
Picking up the green the sofa fabric I think these teeny stripes would look fab!
So, what do you guys think? Polka dots? Geometric? Stripes? Or just go with a classic neutral linen?
What would you do? Any other suggestions?
