Shabby Chic Deckchairs
I TURNED THESE INTO THESE .
Over the weekend I have been busy in the garden and found out that over the winter Roland Ratty had gnawed through the fabric of one of my deck chairs - He must have been desperate to eat fabric don't you think? Well not to be defeated by his hooliganism's I resorted to making my deck chairs a little bit more Shabby Chic.
I know its not quilting but it is craft and I did have to do some sewing. I painted them with Farrow and Balls colour no 4 Old White and would you believe the fabric was a table cloth- Not a very successful table cloth as it was furnishing weight and looked lovely until someone spilt red wine on it . It had to be washed and was never that crisp self again- so in a light bulb moment I thought Table cloth- New deck chair covers.
So here I have my lovely new deck chairs , I just hope the weather continues so I can enjoy sitting in at least one of them . The other one is for my friend - The invisible man LOL.
