Sometimes I’m itching for a little update in my house but when I look around I see lots of tiny 5-45 minute project that I could do. And then I put them off because they don’t seem fun. But ever since I first made the No Sew Fur Covered Chair, I wished I hadn’t distressed the wood. I wanted glossy arms and legs (I’m not talking about baby oil and my suntan habits from the 80′s) but for the chair. I knew it would be a fun balance with the shaggy Flintstone style wolf fur.
The best part? The finished chair was incredibly rewarding. More so than I thought it would be. I thought I would never really notice the small change and so I didn’t have much motivation to get it done. Now that it’s painted, I’m still surprised at what a difference it made (even if I’m the only one who can tell).
What I learned? Something in my house that is 90% done gives me 90% satisfaction (which is really great! and a great place to stop at times). Something in my house that is 100% done give me 150% satisfaction. That’s decorating math.
