Sweet As Honey

49myEi3-PJZw2zMe0mF8_PqG43tJJtKkRzuzxr6lM-4When Bonnie Christine.. of the lovely blog Going Home to Roost … contacted me about participating in a blog tour promoting her new Sweet as Honey fabric line, I took one look at the fabric and said…YES !

I had two chairs that were just beggin’ for fresh paint and new fabric seats, and so this was the perfect opportunity for a new beginning….and a makeover!

Here is what the chairs looked like before: {not horrible, but not hallelujah invoking either}

SAHblogtour7Here is how many layers of fabric were on one of the seats: { three, and lots of straw and moss stuffing}


I created custom {and very special} milk paint colors specifically for this project. I love how the tones blend with the fabric!
