Helping Out -by Lee

I had to help my Lady with some very important chores on the weekend. 

A couple weeks ago, the Lady and Man finally found some chairs for our dining room table. They have a table that seats 10 and only 4 decent chairs. They have been looking for something they liked, that would go, that was affordable. They came across 5 of these in a vintage pop-up store. They are in excellent condition and well worth the $25 per chair they spent. The only issue according to them (as I have not been allowed to sit on them), is the seats have no padding and the colour is not their colour. 

New chair

Now Lady likes to make things more complicated than they need to be. She decided, she needed to find a fabric that matched the 4 nice chairs she had already. It would have been far easier to just reupholster the lot, but she likes the chairs she has. 

Current chair

She and I spent a lot of time on Saturday going through the fabric books she brought from the place that is going to do the chairs. Then we had to check them all again Sunday morning when the sun spills into our dining room. 

I don't think so - it is too dark

Maybe the one down here a little

In the end, she went with this one, called comfort. It wasn't in a book she brought home, but was similar to the colour of one she liked. Because she is looking for small ways to help the planet, she wanted a natural fibre and not a synthetic one, so she found a cotton fabric.

Final colour

The chairs will be recovered at the end of the month or early October. Lady says she doesn't mind the wait. She can live with the not her yellow knowing she has taken steps to get the work done. 

I am sure without my superior help, Lady would have picked an inferior colour!
