I have been wanting to do this for a LONG time. Some of my chair cushions were stained and just looked horrible. No matter how much I cleaned them…they still looked old. It was time to give them a new look.
I already had a staple gun and fabric scissors, so all I needed was the fabric. It was time to give my chairs a modern update, and I was ready to take on this project for the first time. After going up and down the aisles in Jo-Ann’s, I finally found “the one.”
I wanted something darker since I still had little ones that do tend to spill from time to time. I also thought a darker color would be a nice contrast since I have an all white table and chairs set. So first thing is first, had to unscrew the seat from the chair. Then I started removing all of the staples. This was the hardest thing to do out of the entire project.
I cut the fabric to fit, wrapped it around the seat and foam, and stapled. Voila! This really was not that difficult of a project!
What do you think?
I absolutely LOVE these boots! The White Mountain Furlough Dark Brown Boots are perfect for you to wear with any outfit. Throw them on with a skirt, a pair of skinny jeans…let your imagination run wild and be your own unique self!
Love them don’t you! They come in dark brown, black, and taupe. I think the hardest thing to do was picking out the color I wanted. I’m always a sucker though for choosing a brown boot though. If you looked in my closet you would be wondering why I did! Not only will you love the style of this boot, but you will love the way they look on you! We all have to be happy with the way something looks on ourselves, and I promise you, you will love the way they look on you!
If you are anything like me, then you own several pairs of cropped or ankle jeans. Around this time of year though it is a bit chilly, so finding a good boot to pair with them is key. These are it. They are rough enough to go out and about in, but stylish enough to make your outfit complete.
Celebrities wear their combat boots, so why can’t you wear your furlough boots?
If you do not have a Kindle Fire HD then you are missing out. This tablet is affordable, has wi-fi access and more. The hardest thing for you to do with this tablet is to share it. Trust me…you will not want to share. For every “fun” app my kids want to download, they have to also find “learning” and “educational” apps. Their answer, “Okay Mom!” They love them all. From Minecraft Pocket Edition to a Reading Comprehension app, the Kindle Fire HD is the tablet to own. Why should you spend hundreds of dollars on another tablet when you can do everything you need with this one?

You can get the Kindle Fire HD 7″ tablet with 8GB for only $139. Or add a bit more storage and go with the 16GB and only pay $169. If you have Amazon Prime, which I highly recommend if you do not, then you can also enjoy exclusive digital benefits. It is so worth paying the membership fee of $79 for the year. You get to enjoy free two day shipping, unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video, and a Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. Believe me, it’s worth it.
Now back to the Kindle Fire HD. We already owned a Kindle Fire, and the new Kindle Fire with HD does make a difference. Everything stands out better, and everything you watch is much more vivid. There is also a faster processor and longer battery life…which is good when you have little ones that love using it. Here are a few more benefits of this tablet.
Have I mentioned Kindle FreeTime yet? “Kindle FreeTime is free on every new Kindle Fire, and allows parents to create a profile for each of their children and choose what books, apps, games, and videos they want to give their kids access to. They can also set daily limits for tablet use, or restrict certain categories—like games and video—while leaving unlimited time for reading. When kids use Kindle FreeTime, it’s like they have their very own personalized tablet.” ~Amazon
This is one of the best benefits of this tablet. Or you can get FreeTime Unlimited for only $2.99 per month, and your kids can enjoy unlimited access to content from Disney, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, PBS, and more. Learn more! Just look how happy my daughter is!
How many houses do you visit for the holidays? Sometimes, you cannot fit it all in before New Years. I’m always keeping an eye out for something stylish and unique for my loved ones. One store you will love…See Jane Work. I LOVE everything they have, but today I’m showcasing one of their items…their Work Inspired Padfolios. They are super cute, and are even perfect for yourself if you work from home, or just need something to jot down ideas.
I love their little blurb about the padfolio too. “Your best idea shot down again. What is the point of attending meetings if no one listens to you? Finding the courage to keep trying can be difficult.
At your next meeting, take your notes in a Padfolio from the Work Inspired collection. Each design has a message of encouragement. The geometry design features a quote from Emerson, “Go forward and make your dreams come true.” The garden print features a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure.” The quotes are printed on the cover and each page of the notepad.
An inspirational message might not make a bad day good, but it can change your attitude and after all isn’t attitude everything?” ~See Jane Work
How cute is that??? If you are not sold on the design and the look of the padfolio, then you have to be sold on their description. I think everyone needs one of these, don’t you? They are only $14, and you can choose from the Gold Geometry or the Painted Garden. Which one do you like the most? I cannot choose because they are both oh-so stylish!
