sneak peek @ the chairs...


We enjoyed the dusting of snow and chilly weather on the weekend, it was the perfect
 excuse for baking. We indulged in delicious Petite Pumpkin Spice Donuts I found on Pinterest.

I also found time to work on recovering the Craigslist chairs for our dining room...


I chose this bold, neutral...


to coordinate with this fabric for the two upholstered host chairs.


Part of the reason these chairs were so appealing to me was the open style of the back. I plan
 to use pillows on the chairs, and can easily change them out seasonally. The neutral fabrics
 will allow for endless choices, :) bold florals will be a fun mix with both of these patterns.
  I was playing with all the pillows I could find all day a pillow from our sofa to give you an idea.


 And, speaking of chairs, remember my post last week, 'interest for your entry' here,
I showed you how you could give your entry a little pizazz by incorporating a simple
 chair. My friend Patty didn't waste a second moving this chic black and white striped
chair to her entry ~ it's perfect!
 If you'd like to see more of her gorgeous home stop by Patty's Epiphanies here
for a peek at a few of her beautiful rooms. 


I have a rub 'n buff project in the works to show you later this week.

The chairs look great, Pam! Love the fabric and how you can change out the back pillow throughout the year! Can't wait to see the host chairs in their "vermicelli" fabric!

I love your chairs, and Patty's. I don't remember what your host chairs look like. The fabric combo you chose is just perfect and in time for the holidays.

Danielle said...

Love how the chairs look! Those donuts sound yummy too! :)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Love those and love that table.

Tiffany @ {Living Savvy} said...

Please tell me where you sourced that amazing fabric! I so need it for my new living room! Please, please..... [hugs}

I've read a lot about these donuts - I need to check them out. Are you on Instagram, Pam? It's so much fun (if you need any arm twisting). Looking forward to seeing your chairs all happy together ;) I pulled a few fabrics together that I thought to myself - Pam is really going to like these (if I ever get them posted). And I've been meaning to ask someone, where can I find the Rub N' Buff product at the hardware store? I've looked several times and haven't been able to find it. I even check AC Moore and haven't been able to find it anywhere - and of course when I ask a worker they have no idea.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog!! I look forward to all your amazing projects. I need the fabric that you upholstered the chairs with. What fabric is that? It would be perfect for my kitchen.

Your chairs look fabulous! That fabric is gorgeous. I wish I had your talent to redo furniture, it would probably save me a lot of money. xo

cindy said...

The chairs look so great, you are a master at both DIY and finding pieces that are worth the effort. Love the double X design on the backs.

Also you made pumpkin donuts at home? Wow! Going to look on your Pinterest for the recipe.

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

That lattice design is great! Everything is coming together so nicely. You're going to be ready to host a cozy Thanksgiving meal!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Pam, WOW....Thanks for the HUGE shout!
What a wonderful surprise to see my Foyer on your post!
I have many hits this morning and it didn't take long to figure out why.
Thanks to all who stopped by. MC and I have a lot of fun creating (causing lots of mess) in our retirement! That's our way to stay Active Adults!!!
Thanks again Pam

Gorgeous fabric, it's just so very "Pam!" (you will laugh when you see my rug which was supposed to look like your fabric!) You are the most multi-talented person I've ever known (now give me a donut!).

Love the chair fabric....I like the idea of having a pillow at the back of the chair....Looking forward to the final reveals!...Heard about your snowfall...must have been pretty! Like those type of snowfalls...just a little bit to make things looks so beautiful.

Nancy said...

Your choice of patterns is fabulous. I can't believe you had snow???? Oh my. Just had a pumpkin latte this am..the best. Good luck on the rest of your DR project. It will be fabulous.

Oh my word I am loving what is happening in your DR! Is that the new rug I see? Those chairs have a new and very stylish life and the two fabrics are utterly perfect together.

Leslie said...

The donuts, and a a little fall baking sounds perfect! Your chairs look wonderful Pam!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

The chairs are gonna look great! Love the direction you are going with this! Will be so fun to be able to change things out seasonally

Sheila @sZinteriors said...

Love the patterns of your fabrics, Pam! Such a beautiful compliment to the detailing of the chair backs... And great idea to switch the pillows out seasonally!

Brie - Breezy Pink Daisies said...

Beautiful beautiful chairs! That's sweet you can switch them out, but I think the fabric you choose is also perfect year around which is nice because you don't HAVE to change them. :)

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

I LOVE the chairs and the fabric. Awesome!

Sandra said...

Hello. I am so glad I discovered your blog while reading Kim's over at Savvy Design. I will definitely add your blog to my faves. Back to business...I have that exact same fabric that you have on your chairs, but was wondering if you had any problems with it? One of my chairs is finished, but when I tried the other chair, the fabric stretched and it was not even pulled that hard. I had to go get another yard and we'll see what happens. One chair is down, one to go. Also, would you mind sourcing the fabric that other fabric that's set on top of the chair. I love it and would LOVE to make pillows to throw on my bed. I'll have to post pictures of my bedroom soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
