I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and congratulations regarding my Vintage Style Magazine spread! I appreciate all of your support so much!
A couple of posts ago I showed you my new 'cubby thing' in the corner of our sunroom, here.
I've been making a lot of changes to the sunroom, so now I'll show you the opposite corner of the room.
My mom gave us this wing back chair awhile back. She bought it new years ago, and it's in great shape and very comfy, but has an outdated striped fabric. I had a store-bought slipcover on it for some time, but the fit was sloppy, so I finally got around to having a custom cover made in a neutral canvas fabric.
I'm pleased with how it turned out!
I added a vintage grain sack and new pillow to jazz it up a little.
I crudely covered a little footstool that I had with a piece of ticking, and I think it makes a nice pairing.
A shabby little bookcase fits nicely in the narrow space behind/beside the chair.
Of course, I've loaded it with goodies, and you can see that I've continued to add more soft blues and greens to this room.
Most of these items are recent flea-market finds, purchased at unbelievable prices!
Such as, the pretty colored glass bottles...
...this unique old bucket (which I don't know what it is, but I love!)...
...the charming iron planter (which I filled with softly hued eggs)...
...and this cool weathered ammo box...
Gotta love the flea!
I added a few other things that I had...
...and to complete the look, above the bookcase I hung a large frame with some old flashcards, and placed a lamp that gives a soft glow at night.
And now I think this all makes for a happy, summery corner...
...where I enjoy reading or perusing Pinterest on the iPad...
That is, if Bo isn't hogging it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a fantastic day! :)
