make me pretty – kids chair with the cutest owls ever!

August 30, 2010

U-fab has the cutest kids fabric lately: elephants, dogs, frogs with fiddles and owls! Luckily I have a couple of kids pieces waiting for me so I decided to get the owls and make over this chair for my favorite almost nephew, Everett. I have been best friends with his mom since we were fourteen so I think that makes us honorary sisters and therefore her son, the cutest curly red-head on the planet is part mine!

So here is the before picture:

The owl fabric has lots of pretty fall colors in it – one of which is my favorite color green, so of course I decided to go with that for the paint. Then I covered the seat with the owl fabric. I showed the chair to my husband and he thought it was missing something, so I cut out one little owl and added him to the back of the chair.

So there you go. Corbin, you now have the perfect excuse to come visit me – to pick up Everett’s new owl chair.

And speaking of adorable little men – here is mine in his favorite new costume – wolf superhero!
