Those of you who have followed our blog for any length of time know that we have mastered the art of "making do". I love my home to be inviting and cozy, an escape from the outside world, but I don't believe that I have to spend a bunch of money "decorating" when I can use a little creativity to create a comfortable and warm home.
Sir Knight and I have a mountain escape that we are slowly equipping and furnishing on a nonexistent budget. Although furnished with a couch and a rocking chair, the living room echoed with emptiness, resulting in our children playing "musical chair" in an effort to claim the only comfortable spot in the house!
Looking around for inspiration, I came upon two wingback wicker chairs that I had warehoused in our storage shed. The chairs were very comfortable - in fact they formed a "nest" for my children when we had whooping cough - but they were in dire need of a good cleaning and a cosmetic makeover. Thinking they would be perfect for "Cair David", I hauled them out of storage, and with Miss Serenity's help, began to give them a new life.
