Domestic Goddess

Since this is my last week without working or schooling, I'm doing some last nesting things before it hits next week. I love to be busy, don't get me wrong, but I just want to feel "ready." Nesting.

This is what I did today.



This is the fabric for those of you who are interested:

And then....
this is my favorite domestic project I have ever done! I almost forgot to take a before picture, but here is a little peek of the before:

Our friends gave us an armchair. Great size, comfy, etc. So I wanted to recover it. I wanted to use little to no money. So I thought, "what is big enough and soft enough to cover a chair?" Sheets, of course! So I used back to college sales, coupons, and store credit and paid ZERO for a pair of jersey sheets and a throw pillow. And... (drumroll please)....

That, my friends, is a chair covered with sheets. I tucked and tucked and used upholstery tacks. Of course, now I can't get it in the room where it's supposed to go, but that's what husbands are for.

And this is the little secret...

Sorry about the picture, I don't know why it won't flip. But the next time you are over, don't look at the back of my new chair!

ha ha - That's awesome!

P.S. This is what I'm doing instead of doing our reading assignments for Dr. Coyle. But now I've caught up on your blog. So unless you post something now-ish, I guess I'll have to resume reading and stop procrastinating! Do you think there is a psychological disorder that causes procrastination? Because if so, I definitely have it. I guess we'll find out SOON!!!
