This is my second year participating in this wonderful event. I couldn’t decide between 2 chairs so I decided to do both, considering I had 3 months until the deadline, I figured why not! Amazingly, when I was stripping the smaller arm chair I found a tag from January 21st 1928! I was all set with an idea in my mind for their transformations but the fabrics I was wanting to use were going to take too long to arrive so I had to think of another idea….and quickly! With a trip to our local Winners/Homesense store I found a couple of decorative throws that would work with the theme that popped into my head “Winter is Coming”. I do love Game of Thrones but also live in Canada so yes, winter is really coming! I really love how these two chairs turned out. From the chalk painted and distressed wood frames to the decorative nail heads that I’ve saved from stripping chairs over the years and the faux fur fabrics came together to create some unique and cozy chairs that will be up for auction very soon at this years Chair Affair Gala. I hope to see you there!

Happy Sitting, Hope
