little stool and a little cat (without a tail).

the other day when i was selecting fabrics, i knew that the big pink/coral ikat print wasn't right for my chair, but i just looooved it. i decided to buy a yard, and recover my little '60's stool that my mom gave me in it, and i love my decision. here it is:

but, really, what would an "after" photo be around here without mika to interrupt - i mean- grace us with his presence.

i love this fabric.

ps. i finally decided on a fabric for my chair, and it is being reupholstered now! i'm still deciding on what color to re-paint the frame, though...

  1. I love it (the cat really makes the art direction if you ask me)! Great job. Did you cover the fabric directly over the existing or did you remove and re-foam?

  5. lenore - thanks! i removed the welting with a razor, but decided not to remove all of the old fabric, since it was olding in REALLY old stuffing! i just put the fabric over the old fabric, after that.

    hollis - the fabric is from lewis and sheron, here in atlanta

  6. Love your cat! I want to get one, but I'm afraid it will mess-up my leather furniture.
