Big Brown

Happy Mothers Day!! I have the most amazing example of a mother to follow and I am grateful for her daily! Our day was very special and I got to wake up to these beautiful lilies from my sweet husband.

So, here is a "before" picture of Big Brown. He came with my husband. Although he's actually very comfortable (we can sit together in the chair when I'm not pregnant) his arms and nailhead trim are ridiculously overscaled.

Instead of getting rid of Big Brown, who my husband has genuine affection for, I decided to have my upholsterer make a slip cover out of this fabric from Lewis & Sheron Textiles. Pre-washed and treated, I can slip it off and wash it anytime and it really brightens up the room.

Things are looking a little sparse around here as we're starting to pack for the big move! I think he will look much better in his new home! Now he just needs a new name.
