And last summer she found the perfect chair and ottoman to fit in the opposite corner of the porch. It was white and didn't quite match the creme of the covers on the rehabed luxury seating.
But it was in great shape so it didn't really need anything to make it useable.
This summer she painted it to match the other seating and I got busy on the covers.
Yes. I'm proud to say that I actually finished these in the same summer that the cushion covers were requested.
That COULD be the reason I haven't finished my own back porch . . .
Just sayin . . .
The welting matches the welting I used on the cushions for the corner piece.
Could I just say I think it is quite lovely!
Everything blends so beautifully.
But I'm going to air my dirty laundry here.
Jennifer now wants to paint the chair creme. Says that the green chair eats up the beauty of the fabric.
I think she is
I need to add here that I, and a friend of Jennifer's, had to talk her in to using this fabric for the chair. She thought it would be too busy. We said no, it would not be busy, it would be perfect.
So now she wants to paint the chair and make it busy. Because it's the contrast that makes it busy.
I mean she doesn't want to make it busy. She just wants to paint the chair.
The "busyness" will just happen.
And the whole peaceful little vignette will be gone.
Your job - should you choose to accept it - is to chime in.
What do you think?
Am I wrong?
Will it be beautiful painted creme?
It doesn't really matter what I think. Or what you think.
I mean, It's HER chair. In HER house.
And we'll still be friends. (I hope!)
I mean, am I supposed to HIDE all the creme spray paint in the world so she can't paint it?
So just let me know.
Which way would you go?
Then just relax and enjoy yourself today!
