Re-Using Old Furniture







Do you remember this chair?
I made this slipcover almost 20 years ago.
This chair has been in some room 
of our house ever since.





Well, this is the reason for the slipcover.



I decided to buy two new chairs 
for the living room 
and put this chair and 
my old brown recliner 
out in the barn. 


The buffalo plaid was perfect
for the barn.
So, I just made new arm covers. 



Here it is finished.
Easy fix :)

 

And here they are in the barn. 






I found this guy at the 
Goodwill Thrift Store.
It fits my theme wonderfully
and such a handsome fellow :)

Well, that's my blog for today.
Thanks for stopping in to visit.
Enjoy your weekend
&
God Bless You All.

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. I know, I put it through the washer and packed it away just in case I decide to go back to the blues. It's time consuming making a slipcover that fits well so I didn't want to get rid of it.

  3. Oh I love the "new" repurposed chairs!! They look great! I bet your barn is very very cozy. Maybe one of these days I can see it in person! Hugs! Marilyn

  5. Your barn looks so cozy especially with those 2 "new" chairs. You did such a great job of recovering the arms where they were worn.

  6. I adore your barn and it's decor. The chair looks perfect there. Great job! What a wonderful talent you have in sewing, painting and decorating. Beulah looks like she approves and would like to stay in the barn! :-)

    1. It's a sweet place for guests to stay. I should take a barn vacation and spend a few nights out there myself and see what's it's like.

    1. Thanks . . . I always hope that someone that see them will get inspired to redo something they already have but are maybe tired of. It's fun to take something old and make it new again.

    1. Thank you. As for making slipcovers, they take patience and they are a bit tricky. They are not my favorite project. Thanks so much for following my blog 😊
