Leah's Colorful Home Tour...

Leah from 'The Way We Are' blog sent over some pics to of her home after I told her I wanted to share them with all of you! I saw her living room before both her & her husband tackled the upholstery on those chairs and reupholstered them in a stunning black & white fabric! Don't they look great?

Can you believe she actually SCORED those chairs on Craigslist!?!  It always amazes me what a little paint & fabric can do to a space.  I hope you'll enjoy this tour of her home, you can also visit her blog here.

I've REALLY been wanting to re-upholster something in a black & white fabric....just haven't decided what just yet. It makes such a statement and adds a great amount of interest to a home! LOVE it!

  3. I absolutely LOVE those chairs and the upholstery. I also re-upholstered my living room couch, 2 chaises and 2 chairs (in a sitting area). For dining room chairs, I went to thrift stores and bought 6 different wood chairs but upholstered them all in the same fabric and painted my wood dining room chairs black. They look fabulous. When people come to my home, they can't believe those came from a thrift store. It's amazing what some black paint and fabric could do.

  17. I saw those same black, mirrored vases at Macy's this past weekend. Do you know where they got them from? Not sure if Macy's sells them as they were more of decoration for a private event they were holding. I absolutely LOVE those!
