I am already changing the table! While rummaging through yet another Halloween tote, I came across a skeleton head that I thought would work nicely in my centerpiece from yesterday's table.
On a recent comment Eileen mentioned that she had more Halloween decorations now than she did when her children were small. I understand completely, Eileen. I have tons more than when my son was home. Once he became a teenager, he never really appreciated my holiday decorations anyway. DH is always appreciative of all the work I do for holiday celebrations, so that inspires me to do a little extra decorating work. As long as we both enjoy it, I will continue to do it.
When I got home from work today, I recovered my breakfast counter chairs in a neutral beige fabric. They used to be in a blue/burgundy fabric that matched my old sofa. Now they are blah beige and that works perfectly for me right now. :) I am planning to make some head rests for the green sofa from this same fabric. My new sofa did not come with head rest fabric panels and I am really missing that. I feel like within a year this sofa is going to show wear (I had my old one for 20 yrs and it showed very little wear).
I think I have recovered these chairs at least five times in the past 10 years. It is so easy. I just cut the fabric to size and use a staple gun to attach it. It took less than 30 minutes to complete 5 chairs.
I hope you are all having a great first week of autumn.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
