I love the story of this chair makeover, largely because it sounds a lot like my own DIY projects — an equal mix of inspiration, serendipity, and hundreds of staples…

Back in mid-November Christine, of Bijou and Boheme, blogged about picking up these lovely-lined but shabby (and pink!) chairs, along with an inspiration photo of similar chairs covered in fur. Then Christine lived with the chairs while she decided what exactly she wanted to do with them.

Now, this is where the story reminds me of so many of my own DIYs. Last week Christine blogged about standing in line to have some fabric cut for a curtain project when she spied a freshly-arrived bundle of blushy chenille faux fur. Perfect for the chair project and sitting right there, just waiting to be noticed by her! I love it!

I love the juxtaposition of the fluffy fur with the simple curved brass legs. At once hard and soft and also completely unexpected!
