My client picked up this chair at a yardsale for $20! It had a great cozy feminine shape for her guest room. She chose a great whimsical bird fabric for her chair. It was a bit of work with the rounded inside back and matching up the birds and twigs going down the front, but we were both thrilled with the outcome.
Chair—AFTER We decided to add a 8″ skirt just to mix it up and change the look a little.
If you’ve never been able to master the tuck in area for a rounded inside back chair, I offer tips in my “Get it Covered” Advanced Slipcover Guide. It took me years to figure out the trick for a smooth tuck in that doesn’t pull and allows you to tuck it in deep into the crevice.

- I booked flights for my family to go to Puerto Rico later this fall. I was feeling sentimental and a bit teary eyed that my oldest will be a senior in high school in the fall, and that will be his last year at home. I saw a great price on flights, and after a 2 minute conversation with Heber, I booked them. I’m all about making memories, and making this last year count! Which reminds me of my goal this year to have more magic moments as a family. You know those few and far between moments when time stands still, and you look around and everyone is happy and the feeling is magic? And you are trying to commit that moment to your long term memory as it’s happening? Yes! I want more of those—which means the boys have to be on board and stop fighting!Here was one of our #magicmoments over Christmas break. Skiing as a family on Christmas Eve. Heber started all the boys skiing when they were 3 years old, so they are all faster than me now. Well, I was never really that fast, it took me two years of cross country skiing to get back on the bunny hill after the first time Heber took me when we were dating. I didn’t like going fast. #utahboy #californiagirl
