Cactus Chair Makeover

I love a good deal, so when I saw this old beauty at a tag sale for $25 I grabbed her. But let’s be honest, this old gal needed some love.

Inspired by Justina Blakeney’s new book The New Bohemians (check out her Jungalow on Instagram), I felt inspired to add a bit of jungalicious whimsy to my space. I searched high and low for the perfect fabric and found what I was seeking in a watercolor print from Crumpets & Crabsticks. Yet, how to get this gorgeous design onto fabric?

Enter Green Park Studios. To print a custom design on fabric, all you have to do is upload your design to the Print Studio, pick your fabric and let her work her magic. If you want to print the exact same cactus/succulent fabric shown on this darling chair, choose it from the Fabric Shop. Lisa recommended the the linen cotton canvas which I also highly recommend for a slipcover. It’s strong, yet super soft after just the first wash. Finally, you just need to pick how many yards you need and you’re all set! Within a week after placing my order, 7 yards of beautiful custom made fabric arrived at my doorstep. I took that fabric and my old chair to my local seamstress, Lori Palmer, who made this gorgeous cactus slipcover.
