Sprucin up the chairs and a little pink

Hi Bloggerettes!  As if I didn't have enough to do already, I decided to recover my kitchen dining chairs.  They were looking kinda tired and needed a new look.  So, out comes the staple gun!
I like the leaf pattern.  It's neutral and goes well with the chair finish.
There are two armed chairs and two side chairs.

I have two down and two to go!
See how the fabric matches Gizzie.....

It's also Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.
This is one of my little pink and white snow houses.  I am just crazy about these.

Be sure and stop by Beverly's and check out lots of pretty pink stuff.

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.
Now it's time to drag out all those Christmas decorations and get in gear for the Holidays!

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie Sweetie...
Heck I can't decide which I love more. The chairs or Ms Gizzie. She is so pretty. I do love the leaf pattern you have chosen though, it is going to be gorgeous for the holidays and year round.

Your pink house is SO pretty. I am seeing more and more of them. Each one so different, and colors galore, some even have lights added. Just beautiful Sissie. Thank you so much for sharing today. I love it when you do.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Sherrie said...

Thank you for your kind words. They really mean so much to me. I'm afraid I have been really pushing myself today to have everything ready. Unfortunately, I pulled a muscle last night and could not get any sleep. I'm running on empty right now. It is 10:30p.m. and was ready to call it a day, and then I saw your encouraging words.....well I am back up and running. Don't worry I promise pictures for the big reveal. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great fabric, Sissie! I love it and it does match your cat! : ) Those houses are just lovely (I've been seeing them around lately). I could imagine a whole tabletop display with them or one on its own under a cloche. I really like yours because it has a pink roof!

A Cottage Muse said...

I think when our plates are full we have more energy to take on more projects! Glad you did because the chairs look amazing!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Pretty chairs Sissie. I love how they look. Surprised you didn't cover them in pink though!

katie said...

I love the pink house, so frosty and pretty.
Kitty really does blend with the chair, make sure to look really good before you sit down.

Olivia said...

Ok sweet Sissie, I am back please tell where you found that darling snow house, if I can't get one cheap I am thinking to make one! Happy Pink Saturday again, oh yes, my kitties are crazy about each other, originally we thought they were both boy brothers, then what a shock when little kitty turned out to be a girl and I ran them to the vet asap so she would not get pregnant LOL!

Claudia said...

I love that fabric! It really looks so pretty on your chairs.


Lululiz said...

Great fabric for the chairs, and it does indeed match Miss Gizzie! Have to be careful you don't sit on her, lol, if she blends in that well.
The little house is just so sweet, really dreamy looking.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Pretty fabric you chose for the Chairs...Gizzie will be all but invisible! I have cushions on my dining room chairs and they need a recovering job so badly....wish a staple gun would do the trick...guess I'm gonna have to sew or go buy new ones! I bet I sew as I have fabric that will be perfect and needs to be used! MMMMM good Christmas project...FaLaLa!
