Emily's Chair-- [That once belonged to her mom]

Old,old Kitchen Chair
Painted black
Adding new batting [the old was in bad shape]
Embroidering Her Intital
Now what 13 yr old girl do you know, that doesn't
want everything with an inital?
Covering the chair  bottom with :
[Black/white polka dots and of course hot pink]
FInished Chair
[ps  I added pink polka dots to each of the
wood peices on back of the chair. Forgot to
get new photos ? sorry]

This chair was hanging out in the barn. [Kenny never
throws anything away . I am so proud of that. ]. I spray
painted this chair white when Cindy [our daughter] was
9 yrs old.  And put a holly hobbie doll fabric on it.
 Over the years, it got tossed out..

When Shopping with Emily and Cindy a  year ago,
Emily saw a chair with a black /white zebra
seat.It had the intital seat. She really wanted
it, but mom said no , to the price. I decided
it would be a great Christmas present.. She
was really excited over the chair, and loved
that it was orignally done for her mom.

 Now, I wonder , will this chair last  in a barn
some 25-30 years for her little  girl??


  1. Oh, that is so cute! I hope it lives to see her daughter as well. :)

  2. What a great story and cute project!

  3. OMG! Just how brilliant and creative are you - lucky Emily to have this one-of-a-kind hand decorated chair just as she had admired at the shops...

  4. Terrific chair! Great find! Blessed grand daughter!

  5. WOW!! You did an amazing job!!! I love it!!!!! :D And I hope it is still around to be passed on to another generation!

  6. What a CUTE chair. What little or big girl wouldn't enjoy such a cool chair!

  7. Wow Judy, this chair is such a treasure! I'm sure it will continue its course of being handed down to the next generation. What a lovely tradition! It is so adorable the way you have made it up! I love it and I'm sure your grand daughter will charish it! You are the best!

  8. That should be, cherish! Yikes I can spell! Ha, not really!
