Over the weekend, I dug out two very important objects that I’ll be working on for the study-o.

The first is a small shelf which surprisingly is the exact same width as the desk. I’ll need to paint it white. Oh, and dust it off :)

The second is the chair I picked up off Craiglist.

I’ve been shopping around for fabric to give it a makeover and have narrowed it down to two options:

Waverly Strands in Black
Vintage leaf print fabric from CANOPYstudio

I’m still mulling it over, but the entire chair will change depending on the fabric I pick.

I have them both on the new desk so that I can work on them over the next few weeks. Hopefully it doesn’t take me long, but I’ll update you as I go as always!

  1. Waverly Strands in Black would look stunning on that chair because they both feature stories in elongated curves. The teal fabric I think would lead to a more squared off effect that would take away from the chair's curves. And I just think if you are going to have a lot of sharp angles (a square room, square edged desk, squared edge bookcase) in there all ready then the curves would a welcome viewing change.

  2. My instincts go to the Waverly for pragmatic reasons and because it would look really great, but I can't help but feel like the Vintage leaf would really draw the eye more, especially if its in a room with a lighter paint job and overall color theme. Regardless, I'm sure it will come out great.
