Day 590's make believe makeover

It's been a week, and I'm still not over that pair of blue club chairs I saw in an antique store/flea mall. I hate passing up such a good deal, even though we have no need for them/place to put them/funds to recover them. So, in lieu of owning them, I'll fantasize about what I would do with them.

It's almost spring, which means I'm experiencing my annual crush on all things navy blue. Especially this fabric from Lewis & Sharon. I'm thinking it would hide dog hair like a dream, er, it would be really pretty on the chairs.

Then, I'd lighten the room up a bit with Aganthus Green by Benjamin Moore.

Between the chairs, a little painted chest is practical and pretty. And since I saved so much on the chairs and fabric, I think I can splurge at little on the chest! (Yeah, right!)

A pair of floor lamps will be perfect for reading. Antique brass, please. Add a stack of books and we're set.

I love that fabric! I actually just sent that exact same fabric to my mom to see if she liked it to cover a side chair with for her guest bedroom makeover that I'm helping her with. Guess I'm on the same page with the blue, its so pretty!
