Lisa, thank you so much for stopping by and you always leave such gracious and kind comments. I really appreciate it. Yes, I do think we have a lot in common. I'm so glad you like the same tulip fabric that I do. I just think it looks so much like spring and summer. I made some throw pillows for the LR sofa since it joins my DR and then made the little tablecloth for the table. It changed the whole look of my room. What are you going to do with yours? I would love to see what you do. I am also really excited to see the upholstery on that gorgeous chair you just refinished. Looks lovely. Anyway, thanks again. Hugs, Marty

Betty said...

It must feel really good seeing the finished product of your hard labor! The tables look so professional and I can´t wait to see what the chair ends up looking like!

Love your chair. Are you doing the work yourself? Reason I am asking is I also have a chair to do. I didn't think it would be a big deal but I can't get the old fabric off. How am I ever going to do the upholstery work myself? I'm a do it yourself kind of gal but this chair has me stumped. Nice job on the tables too.

I love the mirror tops on those tables. I couldn't tell if that's what was there before...but they sure do look spectacular now! So when you going to get that chair done so we can take a peek?

Laura said...

Enjoyed visiting,

Happy To Be said...

OH French...that chair is just awesome my friend...what kind of fabric are you doing it in...May you have a great week...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

mrsben said...

Lisa, long time that I 'no' popped in. So glad that I didn't miss this.
You've done a spectacular job refinishing the chair! I can hardly wait until you upholster it. The end tables are really are superb!

Question: I have a fabric chart that give yardage for varying styles of seating. IF you wud like I wud gladly email it to you.
Its a great source for reference as the yardage is extremely accurate. Unfortunately it is in metric measure but quite easily to convert to imperial. Just let me know if you're interested in a copy.

Hugs -Brenda-

Lisa, I'd say those tables have morphed into greatness! Love the mirror idea. Oh, and that chair - I can't wait to see it with fabric. It's a beauty. Your flowers are so pretty. I'm late getting here, so maybe you have fabric on the chair now???? laurie
