I scored 2 Wingback Chairs this weekend!

I have been watching KSL a lot lately for some cool chairs. I wasn't sure exactly what kind of chair. I just knew I would know when I saw them. Well here they are. I scored these 2 chairs for only $60 for the pair. What do you think?

I am wanting to upholster the chairs in the small chevron pattern and add the floral pattern for pillows. Just a rough draft. But also to give you an idea of what's in my head. For now.

My Memorial Day

Run of Remembrance 10K. Me and my little sister Becky. Who, by the way, ran 7 min miles the whole way. She is amazing!

Adding Textiles to the Family Room

Just a rough draft. But just to give you an idea... on how to turn my dark charcoal sofa into Light and Bright.

What do you think?

 I actually wanted to add pink but my Hubby says NO Pink. So I went with yellow. :) Which I also like.
