On May 12th, I posted a Time Out chair I restyled. Truth is I was never happy with how it turned out. I think I know why it didn’t turn out as I planned. I forced it. I was determined to finish the project even when I felt I should put it aside. One thing I lack is patience and that can be a crafter’s undoing. Sometimes it is just better to set a project that is frustrating aside to finish at a later date.The Time Out chair is an example of restyling a restyle.(You could say)
My upcycled 70’s inspired girls table has so far been Erin’s favorite. It is the perfect size table, but lacked a chair. We caught her pulling the table up to the step in an attempt to sit at the table. That is when I thought of the time out chair. We are very blessed so far. We rarely have to put her in Time Out, so we haven’t really used the chair, and I thought if I restyled the chair, it would go great with the table. I used the same 70’s fabric as the table, and re-painted the chair to match. Now Erin has the perfect place to sit and read her book, and I have a chair I can live with!

How fantastic! I definitely hate when something just isn’t right due to my own impatience, so I can relate to that!
