Show and tell friday...A chair fit for a princess

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to share this chair I made over for my little girl Lily,
but before I do... a big thanks to Cindy at My Romantic Home for hosting show and tell Friday
I havent been blogging as much as I have found out I am now 6 weeks pregnant wth our second bubby
(due 1/1/2011) and so we are on a scramble now to get everything we have wanted to get done.. well done LOL and YES i have started nesting ....hmmmm I would have been pregnant when i painted the kitchen ahahah thats my excuse anyway I hope you have all been well and YES i have checked up on you from time to time....
and so on with my sharing I'm really not sure whrere this chair will end up... will go in her room on in the living room? (once its renovated!!)  but either way Im happy with the result and my little princess loves it

My inspiration as always, my ballerina girl
To us she is the greatest gift of all, I'm grateful everyday 
for this precious little person 

smoke damgaed chair that sat in the bathroom of our former cafe
with the base off letting it air
peeling back the layers
pile of rusty staples and muslin
with the back off
layers are tattered but the bones are still beautiful
covered with wadding and a check polar fleece looking better already
just have to put the back on
Finished...and fit for my little girl.. wooden feet were put on later

SO thats what i have ben up too, hope you like it.. I found it very rewarding and making over things is very very addictive.. I'm on the look out now for more chairs to do!!!
I have a few more projects on the go so pics will follow soon
I hope you all have had a beautiful week
thanks for stopping by and having a look at my little space on the web
much love to you all
