Maybe it's her name, but April certainly seems to love springtime. She tells us that she recently expanded her porch so she could spend more time outdoors, but needed to furnish it on the cheap. Luckily, a friend found this free glider which just needed a little spruce up in order to become official new porch furniture.

A bold fabric choice was just what this simple chair needed and that grey and yellow print is springtime perfection. April says:
I do sew, but normally limit myself to straight lines and patterns so this was a bit of a stretch. I did the entire project, from cleaning the chair to buying fabric to recovering it, in one day. Now I have a chair that makes me happy to look at and that I actually want to use. Step one on getting outside and using my new porch!

Thank you April!
