Personalizing the Dining Room

Monday, January 21, 2013


Slowly, I have started to update our dining room. Most of what I am doing is tweaking what we have to make it a little more 'us'. Sometimes it takes living with stuff for a little while to get a real sense of the changes I want to see happen. At least that's how my brain works--slowly.      



I painted the dining room chairs emerald green last year {look who was one step ahead of  the 'trend' :) } and I just recently got around to recovering the seats. I wanted to make a monogram {obviously} pillow to sit in the 2 chairs that flank my buffet.  



I had just enough green check cotton fabric left over from a project to make the fronts and enough yummy army green velvet from a different project, to create the back and flange of my new 20" pillows. I decided to replicate the look of the 'Celeste' applique style from Leontine Linens using acrylic paint mixed with textile medium.   




  Tomorrow, I will show you how I jazzed up those puppies.
