Good morning Cottage Fix friends! Another day, another Cottage Fix chair. It’s a French-ish sort of chair upholstered in a textured flax fabric and it makes me smile. Yes, it’s a real charmer that’s for sure. Funny enough, it’s the one and only piece of upholstered furniture in the house. That would be mostly because of the kiddos, Miss Paisley, and my love of a good Pinot Noir. I haven’t decided if it will be for sitting in or just for looking at. Grin. I chucked it in the corner of our office to cozy it up in here and add a bit of French flare. Mr. Macho helped me get it home in his truck from World Market this past weekend.
I had something else in mind for this corner of our office. My heart was set on slip-covering a vintage cutie in a solid linen or stripe. And then I read something online about some of the old vintage chairs having muslin under their upholstery. So I began ripping and pulling only to find the most horrific seventies floral fabric imaginable. And then to top it off, dusty old fluff began to escape from somewhere deep inside of my vintage cutie. So I did what any lover of vintage furniture would do – I threw a little fit and then marched that disaster of a chair straight to the curb. And that’s how Miss French Flax landed a spot here at the cottage of old vintage things.
I also wanted to share my peach roses with you (again). They are opening up so nicely. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I’m adding more fresh flowers into my life. I found a couple of places around town where I can get away with bringing something pretty home for just a few bucks. They make such a huge difference, especially during these long spells of dreary weather. I’m on a bit of a rose kick right now. See you soon.
