Entry Makeover

I have had this West Elm Parson's table for over 10 years and while it has performed well in all our homes and 5 moves, it was time for an update.
I had this table cover custom made to fit the table perfectly. I wanted to make a statement in our entry, so I decided to use bold colors. The pink gives it a pop of color and the contrasting white banding gives it a finished look. I spray painted the Asian plaques in glossy blue ($1 each at a thrift store) and added some flowers to the ginger jar. Voila!
Almost everything in this entry is something I already had, but was in a different place in our home. If you’re on a budget and want to refresh your entry, go shopping in your home first!

DIY Barstool Makeover

I loved my bright, pink kitchen barstools from World Market, but when I had some left over fabric, I knew right where I wanted to use it.
This quick makeover will work on chairs and barstools that have a frame on all sides.
First, trim your fabric to the shape of your opening. I left about 1/4” on all sides for tucking under the frame.
Next, I used my frosting spatula to tuck the fabric under the wooden frame.
That’s it! Easy peasy.
