What do you mean, what is it?
Why, its only the ugliest second hand beanbag chair in the city! Set me back a whole $3.50.
I mentioned when we were reorganizing and reclaiming our family room from the mini-Legoland that it had become, that I wanted to get a beanbag chair for the kids to put in there. They had been asking for one, and those that know me know that I get excited over anything I can recover in fabric I choose.
Then, stopping by a thrift store on the way back home from school drop-off the other day unearthed this lovely brown beauty. Peter is very skeptical, frankly, the kids are too (they gave each other one of those "mom's-doing-it-again look when they saw it). But I'm not wavering, and choose to ignore the nay-sayers. They don't know that when I look at it, instead of a brown blob, I see something more like this (from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern)-
With the pleather cover intact, the inner bag seems in good shape, although it could use a lot more stuffing. I'm going to take the pieces of the cover apart, make a pattern, find some fabric that will work (the best part), add some stuffing, and prove my lovely family wrong. Just wait.
