DIY Chair Contest Winner Announced!

Posted by


Back in November I announced a DIY Chair Make-over contest with the winner receiving 1 yard of the Tobi Fairley Home fabric of their choice!  There were lots of really great entries and it was fun huddling with my staff looking at all of the amazing DIY projects y’all submitted.

In the end, there was a clear standout among the entries.  Here’s a look at the before image:

Our contest winner said she found this flea market find for $50.  She’s been told it’s a 1960s Sears knock-off of a Milo Baughman design.

You won’t believe the transformation our winner made to this chair that had seen better days!

The chair was reupholstered in a laundered linen.  Wow!  What a difference!  Can you believe how fabulous this chair looks, especially juxtaposed with the rustic table? I’m officially jealous and wish that it was mine! It even has my initial on it already, right?

In addition to reupholstering the chair, a detachable monogrammed casement was printed with a custom logo.  The printing was done by a local screen printer for only $15!

A big round of applause to the winner of my first DIY contest, Sharon Taylor of A Lifestyle Thing and Sharon Taylor Designs!  (And great photos by Heather Cherie Photography)

Sharon, I hope you enjoy your free yard of fabric from Tobi Fairley Home! I can’t wait to see which one you select.

Congratulations and thanks to all of you who entered.   xo, Tobi
