Our kitchen updo is really coming along and I”m so happy with how it’s turning out. So far we’ve shared the Wine Crate Plate Holder Vignette, Backsplash redo. and the Chippy Cottage Railing. Today I’m sharing the kitchen updo: Ralph Lauren Tiered Ruffled Skirt Chair Cushions.
The vision for our chair cushions hit me when I spotted a Ralph Lauren Tiered Ruffled Shirt at a thrift store for $4.99.
I was drawn to the skirt since it has 4 tiers of lacy ruffles. Also, because the ruffles were already gathered. All I had to do was cut the rows of ruffles off and attached to the main fabric.
Each chair cushion only took me about 45 minutes to make. I am tickled how they came out and it was one of those “visions” that really worked. Gosh, I wish that happened more often.
I had the hardest time finding the right “pink” that matched the curtains.
I added a contrasting striped fabric for the skirt ties. It looks red in the picture but it matches the “pink” in the checked fabric perfectly.
I love how the skirts look under the table, all dainty and charming. When the winds blow in from the windows the skirts gracefully flutter across the chair legs like ballerina’s.
Mr. Charmer prefers a chair with arms so I covered this chair for him. He asked me to leave the skirt off, but I said no!
Mr. Charmer also said the chairs looked “feminine”. I guess they do…but he did eat dinner in his chair tonight without saying a word!
