Vintage pizazz!

Doesn't it feel good to tick things off your to do list! 
And this project has been waiting in the wings patiently for quite a while. I'm eager to turn our box room into a lovely girls retreat, with just enough pink but equally filled with a mix of new and vintage fabric and finds. So transforming this;

into this,

was high on my list, but it still didn't have that pizazz. 
It needed something. So after a quick rummage through my vintage stash, 
cushion one appeared,

And just in case it got lonely and to make the chair extra comfy a second cushion appeared.

It's lovely as little E who is now a whopping 8 months old got all excited when she saw her transformed chair, her chubby legs went berserk and she grinned like a Cheshire cat.
I'm beginning to think she might already share her mummy's obsession with fabric! 


  1. i like it, it's very sophisticated as far as color and pattern choice but still fun! :)

  2. Well done! When can you come and make some cushions for us, please?
    Has smiley, baby E moved into her new room yet, I wonder. She will love it, with the sun streaming in through the window and the lovely view over the treetops!

  3. I love the mix of fabrics here. Its girly but not in a sickly way. Brilliant. E must have good taste too! Juliex
