spring upholstery

i've been a bit distracted this week by passover and easter and this beautiful weather we're having & i didn't post nearly as much as i would have liked..... so today you get 2 projects & a promise that i will do better next week ;)

the before of a sturdy old rocker that has done some porch time. or maybe a lot of porch time.

woooo and the after! the blue green patina was so fab that we sanded a bit, protected with poly and left it be.

the upholstery is this great amy butler fabric. we used a pillow form for the top, added grommets, and 3 ring binder clips so the these cushions can come off in the winter if you want the rocker to stay outside.

the bottom cushion lifts off as well for all weather perfection. i adore.

this little stool as been kicking around waiting for just the right upholstery, and yesterday i found it.

makes me want to be a tailor.
