I am most delighted to have you join in..for it's YOU who makes it a "show and tell party". I also participate in Tablescape Thursday the host of that fun carnival is the Hostess with the Mostess...Susan of Between Naps on the Backporch. That's no lie or exaggeration, each week I visit Susan's porch and just long to be a guest at any of her tablescapes...especially those held on the porch.

First of all, I want to welcome our new Thrifty Thursday participants and Tales from Bloggeritaville followers. We have had several comment in the last few weeks, saying that they are new to the Thrifty Thursday party. I hope that everyone will make a point to pay a visit to other participants.
Sometime ago I found a wingback chair at a garage sale for $10.00. I loved the look and lines of the chair, but the fabric needed some love.
The colors in the Aztec print were both faded and did not match my home. The condition of the fabic was in poor shape, it was badly frayed.
For $10.00, I knew I could make it work. I knew it could be a diamond in the rough. So I lugged the chair home and went about searching for a slip cover that would work in my home.
Remember I have three children and five dogs, we know all about stains.
We thrive on stains.
We are a living stain commercial.
That being said,
I needed something that matched my dogs hair.
I needed something that matched chocolate milk, dirty socks, mojito's & mudslides. ;)
I also wanted a fabric that would work in other rooms of my house. I get bored and often will move items around my home so finding something that would blend into the other rooms was a necessity as well. I searched and found this fabric from CSN stores...
A nice houndstooth. I AM partial to houndstooth, ya know. ;)
A cheap fix for a cheap chair....but I think it looks great!
(And for the record the cheetah print pillow, needlepoint stool, and lamp are also thrifty finds!)
Now onto Tablescape Thursday...
You know....I am a sucker for white dishes.
All dishes came from my favorite store, AT HOME, Homewood.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday. Can you believe we have had #97 Thrifty Thursday post.....I am planning a little something special for #100. Stay tuned!
I invite you to join me tomorrow at Plates and Places for Foodie Friday.
