CHAIR LOVE - 1.16.15

Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie, What do you get when you add a HUDSON BAY BLANKET + HABLE FABRIC to a VINTAGE CHAIR?

An explosion of design awesomeness!!!!

Projects like this remind me of my love and passion for design. It also makes me crave more design in my everyday.

These chairs really have me smiling along with appreciating all the time and effort it took from a few who helped complete my vision.

So, I bought these chairs on Ebay. They were sent to me via the Greyhound bus. But guess what? Greyhound buses don’t come to Jackson, WY. My husband kindly agreed to go dirt biking over the pass in Idaho this past summer and pick them up at the closest Greyhound bus location.

But it was several years ago I came across these pictures and knew someday I would recreate my own Hudson Bay Blanket Chair. I have grown up with Hudson Bay Blankets at my families Canadian summer cottage so I have strong memories attached to the coziness of these classic blankets.

More recently I have developed a love affair with Hable Fabric in particular their cherry checker. I knew the the blanket + the cherry checker would make the perfect pair.

I wish I could say I reupholstered these chairs myself but not the case. Stitch Upholstery located here in Jackson, WY tackled my vision and created these masterpieces. Thanks ladies!

Coming up soon, the map accent wall I created for our media room where these chairs are now housed + more details on the room. Slowly but surely this room is finally coming together.

What do you think about my new/old vintage chairs?

SNEAK PEAK 11.7.14

Hi guys, it’s me, that girl katie, I have a lot of projects going on in my house so, I thought I would share a behind the scenes “SNEAK PEAK” of a few of them.

I have been working on turning my kids playroom into a craft room and the non furnished attached room into a media room + playroom

This is the media room + playroom in progress:

I am planning to DIY the armoire that is currently in our garage for toy storage plus I need to paint the T.V. wall and hang the wallpaper I have for behind the couch. I have 2 chairs that are getting upholstered as I type and then there is all the styling and accessorizing to take place.

This is the craft room in progress:

I still need a table and chairs, pegboard for tools & a way to display artwork. I also need to purchase more craft supplies and organize all materials.

I have a feeling this space is going be really used while also allowing me to spend more quality time with my kids.

It’s so exciting for me when a space comes together but it’s also a test of patience that it doesn’t happen in 30 minutes like a decorating show. It’s a labor of LOVE.

I have a lot on my to do DIY list. What DIY projects are on your list?

Happy weekend!
