One big comfy chair

this chair was in my garage for a long time . it was a green sage slipcovered chair. I did not like the color but the chair was so cozy,  so i put some fabric over it, and tied bows all around the bottom for a Shabby chic look.
My two favorite books!!!
this fabric is Simply Shabby Chi blue gray duvet from Target, I have the same one on my bed, this was extra one i had.....i knew i would use somewhere one day...

Cozy & beautiful!

Great books, I have both sitting on my coffee table. Have you seen Pale & Interesting by Atlanta Bartlett? Can't remember if I asked you already... but it's good too.

I would never get up from that chair, Tausha, it looks so soft and comfortable.

Have a great day!

I think only you could pull that off and have it look so lovely! It looks so cozy and I love the bow ties.
I so look forward to your posts...do you always have all those beautiful flowers in your home? I'd get rid of everything I own just to have flowers everywhere!
Have a beautiful day ~

It definitely looks like a chair I could pass out on :) Love your creativity w/ putting the sheets over it. And I'll have to check out that Prairie Style book you have there.

Simply Me said...

Yes i always keep fresh flowers!!! Its a must ....I do not feel like my home would be right if i did not keep fresh flowers.. Maybe only one pack i will buy, but they last about 2 weeks, i make the most out of them.
I can decorate,and decorate and take a lot of pictures,but until the flowers are in the photos,then it looks complete to me . CRAZY !!!
I do not have a Garden I have 3 rose trees. We had a pool put in last summer so my garden went bye bye....I had one rose tree that bloomed 25 roses at a time, i loves it ..so now i get to start all over...

What a nice slipcover Tausha. It looks perfect with the shabby tied bows. Beautiful photos as always!

A gorgeous, comfy chair! I don't think I'd get up. I'd grab a cup of hot tea and some beautiful magazines and be there for hours on end. I really want ot get Fifi's book! I love the bows you've tied on. Stunning photos as always, Tausha!

Girl, if Rachel Ashwell doesn't ask you to be one of her store decorator she is missing out!!! You are superb!

Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

I love what you did to that chair! I have the same duvet on my bed and I thought I recognized it on this chair. You made the chair look so inviting. So soft and comfy! When I try to put a comforter cover on a chair it never looks quite right. Yours looks great! Love it!

Rambling Heather said...

So comfy looking, I LOVE it! The color is perfect! I linked to you today in a post, just thought you should know :)

Susan said...

I adore that type of look, but for the life of me I can't figure out how you made that slip cover...did you make the cushion separate and then made the slip cover over-sized...whatever you did it is FaBuLoUs...just found your blog and loving every minute of it..thanx...Susan

Simply Me said...

For Susan...Do not be afraid, use scissors... I simple cut around the pillows the just tied the fabric around with bows..then laid the rest of the fabric around the frame of the chair,and to make it tight,i ripped of some fabric from bottom and made bows. I love the way the fabrics looks when do that it gives it the tattered look. This was a duvet so i have two sides of fabric, but you can use any fabric is you have enough.

Deb said...

looks like the *perfect* shabby chic chair to me...love it! ~deb~
