Bar Stool Fabric Makeover and Two Hometalk Bloggers Meetups!

A few weeks ago…I was trying to decide which fabric to use to recover my bar stools…

…..many of you responded.

You can see the fabric choices in the original post here.

The results of your input pretty much leaned toward the fabric that I loved too…and here it is:



The fabric is a faux crewel design by Braemore..


The colors are pefect for great room area..the color of the apples are very close to my sunroom furniture…

…..which goes well with the fabric.



The enamel pitcher is from Ikea.


Apples from Harris Teeter…:)

So thank you all for your input on the fabric choice for the barstool!!

I am making plans to attend two fantastic HOMETALK MEETUPS!!

One is this coming weekend, Saturday May 11th in Greensboro, NC for the NC BLOGGERS HOMETALK MEETUP

…..a great day planned with lots of great places to visit and of course places to eat..

Thanks to Amy and Suzy for coordinating this event….and can’t wait for the “Downton Hat Contest”


And then….on Sunday, May 19th, I will be attending the HOMETALK MEETUP AT LUCKETTS!!
