We have redecorated their bedrooms and now have a real guest room no longer filled with boy-type clutter. OK, it does have some of my crafting bits, but they are easily tidied away into the empty wardrobe when visitors are due.
I was about to throw away one of the boys' old office chairs - look at the picture below and see if you can guess why!
As I had some fabric left over from the guest room curtains, I had a go at re-covering the chair. I filled the foam hole with some quilt wadding, and then covered the back and seat of the chair with the curtain fabric.
Finally I made a loose cushion to go over the seat so that the hole and filling weren't noticeable when sitting in the chair. Ta dah!
A refurbished chair that actually matches the room's decor. Now all I need to do is clear away the crafting bits.......
