before & after.

a. and i picked up this rocking chair for $25 via craigslist a couple months ago.

before:

    

the chair was in blah shape. the wood felt grimy and old, and the cushion was an ugly beige microsuede fabric. so we stripped all the grossness away and made it feel much more fresh.

after:

     

for weeks i searched and searched for the right fabric for this chair. i knew i wanted something bright, but i couldn’t find anything that didn’t look tacky. alas, i found this yellow mum fabric and instantly fell in love with it. it matched our living room perfectly and the pop of white is what i’ve been wanting!

the alphabet.

etsy has taken over my life once again.

while perusing the site the other day, i came across the cutest picture of the alphabet. because i love letters and the idea of coloring them in yourself, i immediately wanted to buy it.

a. on the other hand thought it would be dumb to buy such a thing – do it yourself, he said!

so… i did :]
