A project is never done

When I recovered a pair of chairs too match each other I thought they were done, but that never happens for me... I can never leave well enough alone.
Case in point, this little pillow... I got it through freecycle.com and I loved it, but it looked a little dingy and I didn't really think it could be cleaned without risking total destruction.
So, I took off the buttons and made a new pillow and simply reattached the yoyos! I added some buttons too. I think it looks as good as new. Now, if I can only keep my son from pulling the buttons off. (:



I also decided these chairs needed a little something more, so I added skirts to them. I just love them now. They have a casual, elegance and I like that they aren't showing off their legs. Sometimes less is more. If I ever decide I want them to be daring, little hussies again, the skirts can be removed easily.
