From Brown to PINK!--A DIY Chair Makeover

So it's not surprising when I have a chair makeover post.  I have a love/hate relationship with upholstery projects.  They kill my back and my fingers but dang....I just LOVE the outcome so much!  Not to mention the feeling like you are assembling a really hard puzzle.  The little bits of confidence sprinkled in with the mayhem of the project are what I live for. :)  Let's get into it, shall we?

I acquired this little guy at one of my local Good Will stores.  There wasn't much inspecting going on by me, I just sat in it to see if it was "sit-able."  It was and I grabbed it (along with a small filing cabinet I have some fun plans for that will be featured on the blog soon!).

The purpose of the chair was for it to go in my master bedroom as a vanity chair (for when I figured out what my vanity situation was...ha.  I do things SO out of order!).  Turns out that it was too wide for said purpose.  The good news is that I needed a nice little chair to replace the glid…

Mother's Day is the best day.

Even though most Mother's days since I became a mommy just under 6 years ago (not counting utero), I spend "my" day on duty.  That's ok, because that's WHY I'm a mommy.  Why I choose to walk through life holding onto little dirty fingers with a "boogie rag" in my handbag.  Why I have said handbag (and all other handbags) in size LARGE to hold sippy cups, little zips of pretzels and crackers, hair ties, and miniature toys that the little hands don't want to hold anymore.  Why I have listened to/read/watched Frozen a gazillion times and always tear up for the love of sisters.  I walk through life as a mommy who gets stressed, overwhelmed, overjoyed, and every other emotion included in the human brain.  When I think back on the first time I found out I was pregnant, I was scared and excited.  As I felt my little one moving and watched my belly grow and grow throughout my pregnancy, I started becoming more scared out of my mind than happily excited.…
