A few more projects finished before Christmas!


Recovered Folding Chairs

So I was able to finish up a few more projects before I take a real break for Christmas, to make my Christmas Candy, and decorate the tree.  The tree is in the house, has lights, the star, and strings of pearls on it, but it is still waiting for the ornaments.  Hannah my middle child comes home tomorrow and we will finish decorating and start baking!  Maybe I will try to post about some of the goodies we make and some of the decorations we put up, if I remember to grab the camera!  So on to the projects, a month ago I installed a valance in the Breakfast room of my neighbors down the street, and then convinced them we needed to add a bit of color to the doors.

I posted a picture of the valance on Facebook when we installed it.  But here it is again!

Squire Valance

Someone had made the comment that they thought the valanced looked to close to the blinds.  So just to fill in some details, the Squire Valance is mounted on a 3.5″ board and the blinds are inside the window.  So there is plenty of room for the blinds to move.

They had pleated shades that during the evening they lowered for privacy, but a lot of the time they pull them up.  I had just enough leftover fabric to make some simple valances with kickpleats.

Flat Valances with Kickpleats

I also made them a simple table runner, and both of these additions really pulled the room together.

Another project that I delivered last week was a quick way of making your plain jane folding chairs into custom folding chairs that matches or coordinates with you decor.

These chairs can be purchased at Costco and it takes approx. 1.5 yds of fabric to cover them.  This was some left over fabric that client already had, and it worked perfectly on the chairs.

And my last project that I picked up yesterday from the client.

Chair - Before

The striped chair is not in bad condition, just a little out of date.  The client is looking for a more up to date fabric.

So when I got it home yesterday afternoon, I promptly started stripping it.

P.S.  Please ignore the messy workroom, this is one of the holiday projects I hope to get to! 🙂
