I paid a grand total of $1.00 for both chairs...the green one from a thrift store and the blue one from a curbside dump. While sturdy, they needed some TLC.
Originally I was going to make two different chairs so I didn't have to repaint the blue one...lazy choice. BUT, I've been studying other booth owners' blog posts and Paige from A Junk Chick Life swears that she will only sell chairs in pairs, single chairs just don't move.
So, heeding her experience and wisdom, I made two giraffe chairs. The fabric was a remnant piece and the giraffe pattern was a fat quarter deal. The green chair was "sealed" first with packing tape before adding the fabric. Then, the fabric was coated with a fabric stiffener.
They were priced separately...just in case.
I'm so glad I listened. Both chairs sold, together, in a week.
(there they are...were, in the bottom right)
I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the quick sale. My littlest gave the seal-of-toddler-approval (this sounds like loud temper tantrum style screams when forced to part with the chair).
There are still some zoo animal faces left on the remnant fabric...a monkey, an elephant...so something else will pop up eventually that is jungle animal related.
Till then, my Crafters ADD is moving onto other projects. :)
