My good friend Kristi was stationed at Ft. Irwin with us and when we both found out we were moving to DC we were quite exctied. The only problem is that her family moved north of DC in Maryland and we settled in south of DC in Virginia. We are only a speck over an hour from each other, but the city of DC separates up.
That is a lot of traffic that is separating us!!!
The kids and I went on a little road trip at the beginning of this week.
Through the traffic...
We had a good time getting away, hanging out, staying up late, shopping, finding great deals at PB and eating delicious food!!!
We also worked a little.
Kristi picked up this great chair (ok, it just had great bones, but it was disgustingly dirty and stinky!) at our local antique mall in CA before we all moved. It was time to get this thing painted, antiqued, and reupholstered.
Here is a picture of the inspiration for this piece.
not sure what magazine this was ripped out of
I am loving the horizontal stripes on this chair. It is an unexpected pop!
Kristi - Thanks for a great little get-a-way - - next time it is your turn to drive my way!
*By the way, I have updated my post about the printed pillows -- - giving a little more detail about how I made them. You can go back and check out the new information here.
