Well hello….

6 Apr

My name is Kristin, and I am a blogophile/pinhead.  It amazes me what people can do with their talents and I have a million projects I want to do…and document.  Between planning a wedding, raising our beautiful 3 year old son and working full time, hopefully I will have time to start and complete a project.   So first project…I work in an amazing office in Historic {Soulard/Benton Park} St. Louis. If you have never heard of this awesome neighborhood, it is home to  Anheuser-Busch {now AB-InBev}, the 2nd largest Mardi Gras in the country and is one of the oldest neighborhoods in St. Louis.  All of the homes are about 100+ years old and the neighborhood literally oozes vintage charm {and beer of course!}   Sadly, I have spent the last 4 years staring at this pitiful chair.Image

Yikes!  I had to give this little girl a make over.  With less than $15 dollars in fabric from JoAnn’s Fabric, I turned this late 80’s blah burgundy pleather chair into an eclectic craft-chic statement piece.  Hope you enjoy!
