With yet another wet and miserable sunday threatening, a thumping head and no chance of a car boot sale something had to be done to brighten my mood. I decided to rifle through my fabric stash and set to work on revamping a couple of ugly pieces of furniture liberated from a skip.
The office chair started life in that depressingly corporate shade of blue but took on a whole new and funky persona with the addition of a 1950's curtain and a pillowcase my parents received as a part of bedding set for a wedding present in 1966. The excess curtain fabric fitted the 1970's dressing table stool perfectly.
The result? Two cheerful pieces of furniture, an improved mood and no spend required.
