New Look for an Old Friend

Happy Monday Blog Friends, After a wonderful weekend, it is time to start a new week and join the fun all week long at, From the Cottage Craft Room brought to you by Etsy Cottage Style. While on a weekend treasure stop, I found a gorgeous queen size hand crocheted bedcover. Oh it is beautiful and in perfect condition. In fact, it was just what I was looking for to use as a chair cover. Just look at this pretty rose design.
In my studio you might recall when I shared a comfy cozy chair. It is a tan color and I have had it for a bedroom chair for years. When I added it to the studio it needed a little shabby twist so I added some crochet pieces that I had while thinking I would hunt for just the right larger crocheted treasure to cover it better. Well that day arrived and just look how the redesign turned out. Here is the Before Chair. I might say it is very comfortable and does also recline, but not a large style recliner. More of a ladies chair size and fits perfect in my studio for reading or taking a break. Well, breaks are far and few between, but whenever, I have the spot ready! LOL
Here is the After Chair covered with the beautiful crocheted treasure. I wrapped and fit using the design as a guide. No cutting or sewing, just two large safety pins hidden on the sides. It can easily be removed for washing or using in another way, which happens a lot with me~~~
What do you think? Pretty and french chic yes? Shabby and cozy? Here is pic with a couple added pillows and the spot it lives in my studio.
