i reupholstered a chair // DIY for $1.50

bree did that..likeeee??? can i cry?
mental image of what its like here *its 80 degrees out right now with a perfect breeze, windows are open, ive got headphones on listening to OPEN THE CLOUDS by Unspoken, the sun in shining, my siblings are reading new library books*

Dudes, I wore through my chair covering. It's called a lot sitting there and doing school, reading, painting and what not. and add to that fact that its an ANTIQUE chair!! OH, and my little siblings use my chair as a stool cuz they're short still. hahaaa Basically I really needed to reupholster it. 

 I got the fabric at Walmart for $1.50, it is cotton, which I wouldn't recommend. I knew it would dirty faster, but I really liked how the pattern fit with my room decor, so I snatched the 3/4 yard up. BROS IT IS ALREADY DIRTY AND I DID THIS ON SATURDAY. *covers face with hands* *tries to explain that im literally the barefoot gal so DUH feet get dirty* 

 *sigh* oh well. The project was fun tho and I wouldn't mind doing it again. Bree and Sarah helped me out bc this was actually my first reupholster job! DIY stuff is thrilling to do -- AND it brings such a satisfying face lift to your room. 

 welllllllll, I'm off to mow the lawn. guys, please, keep summer forever. I got my mom to buy popsicles and chalk today bc I WILL NOT LET GO. 

would you reupholster a chair?
are you willing to have summer for another month??
