chair update

jen west of jen west design and the super awesome blog jentrified (coolest blog name ever) is my new bf. she sent me some of this brown sister parish fabric for the cushion on my now pale blue gray chair...for free. yes. she did. because she is awesome and my new bf. and it looks great!
i ghettoized it by wrapping the fabric around the cushion. (my mother in law will sew it for me later.) also need a bright, fun pillow...
i mean i'm no jenny from pearl street interiors...did you SEE that shit she did today?!?! but i am learning and getting better with each project.
also..up today...LONNY MAGAZINE! i can't wait to look thru and give a full mfamb review.

Morning. Just had my coffee.
You are right, pearl street interiors is amazing. What energy that woman has.

Love your new fabric and chair. It will look great when your mother in law sews the cushion. Pics to follow.

Lonny magazine? Domino. I love it, wish I could touch it. Curl up in a chair and flip through and read the text without having to click and click.

That looks great. I'd change her moniker to SDBFF (Super Dooper Best Friend Forever)!

I think all this blog attention has crashed the Lonny site :(

Your freebie fabric looks great - ka-ching!!

Yeah, Jenny (PSI) and her killer DIY-self are making me bloody mad with jealously! If only I had an inch of that kind of talent/ingenuity!

I love the dark of the fabric with the blue of the chair! Now, maybe a yellow pillow??
That's awesome - I've found that I've met some of the nicest people out there in blogland. She's a good bff to have!

Oh, and Jenny is crazy good. Seriously. She makes it look sooooo easy, and makes you think "Duh, why didn't I think of or do that??" And her basement must be amazing.

I am still picturing a Yellow Print pillow!

The fabric looks perfect for the cushion!

Cannot wait to see the finished product!

Love the fabric! Looks great with the chair! Loved Jenny's credenza too! Now I really want to see your buffet project! You should try that poly resin she used for the extra gloss! I've got to get some of that for my next project!

1. I wonder how hard it is to sew cushions for those? I mean, I HAVE a sewing machine.
2. Jenny at LGN makes me feel incredibly inadequate. So good.

Jen is a rockin' gal! How cool is she to send that to you?!?! And it looks SOOOO good!

Blogging is just the best, you meet the nicest people everywhere!

Love the new fabric, I cant wait to see it on the chair!

Jen is my design idol! She is so freaking talented. And I LOVE your chair! That fabric is perfection with the paint color!

Thanks for the mention. I'm blushing over here in between coughs and sneezes. {dang cold}

lots of love,
