~FRENCH WHITE CHAIR MAKEOVER...Oooh La La~

I'm busy helping my mother move today so this is a quick post!  

I finished redoing a few of those charming French Provincial Chairs I shared with you a few weeks ago and here is what the captain style chair looks like today...
Here's the before shot in case your interested!
Such a mix of cottage romance and French white charm!  I'm loving it so much I just MAY reupholster my chairs in my home to match.  (They need recovering anyway!)
I added this sweet painted cabinet to my website shoppe today and also the sweet hand painted vintage camping stool below...
Everything's coming up roses for me and for you!

And...if you are wondering about those of us here in Oklahoma who experienced severe weather last night~  Well...personally, we survived lots of wind and hail!!!  Our yard looks like a war-zone and we don't know yet if we have any other damage. :(  Everything's a big mess tho!!!  Tree branches and junk is strewn all about!  Lots of clean-up ahead!

More soon.  I'm off to carry boxes!

Love to you...

The chair looks fantastic! As for moving, I've done it so often, I should come over and help. Every May my house is a disaster because I lug my stuff home from school, just like a "real" moving experience! There's just not enough storage in our classrooms for all the goodies I need to make school interesting for my kids! Mine are the ones with difficulties in Reading, and most often don't think of school as fun-like I do.

Your newly upholstered chair is gorgeous, Rebecca....I am sure they will sell before the day is over when you put them in your booth!! Yes, that fabric would look lovely in YOUR dining room, too!!
Love the cabinet and little stool...I am going to take a peek at them now.
Where did your mom move to, sweetie? Very far from you? I hope she likes her new "home" and I am sure you are going to help her fix it up just charming!!
Berch is home now and we have Home health coming for therapy three days a week, and a nurse once a week, and Meals on Wheels for him once a day, so he should be well taken care of.......
Have a good weekend, Love Francy

Your chair is gorgeous, Rebecca! I love every wee inch of it! So many scrumptious things in your shop.
I hope all is well at your home and there is no real damage after the storm! I hate the thought of trees being harmed in any way too. Hope you have a lovely and safe weekend, sweet friend.
