The ticking I used on the seat was from my favorite thrift store. The ticking is a versitile neutral blend of cream, white, black and gray - plus it looks french to me, which I love. And for those of you who wonder -yes, I truly do find uses for all the splendid finds I bring home.
Here is a before and after of some wicker chairs I got at a garage sale for $5 each. I wanted some casual seating outside our front door so friends and I have a place to sit while the kids ride bikes/trikes/scooters in the driveway. The chairs look less stable than they are, due to a support frame built under the base. I have purchased some fun Sunbrella brand fabrics on clearance with which to sew cushions, but that will probably wait until next summer since I hear freezing rain is on the way soon (boo!)
Enjoy your Saturday, my friends! Thanks for stopping by. xoxo ~J
