I recently purchaced a wingback chair that just HAD to be recovered! I thought about trying to do it myself...somehow Pinterest make you feel like you can do anything! Well, I decided against that and turned to the great Carlos Turco @ Belle Epoque Upholstry to turn her into a beauty! 
So now I am just going back and forth on fabric options.
At first, I really just wanted to play it safe and go with a natural linen...which would be great b/c then I can add crazy pillows and not be stuck with something I just can't live with.

But there are so many other great fabric options out there!I love this updated wingback! And of course you can't go wrong with a Trina Turk for Schumacher fabric. 

I'm also a fan of the lavender Ikat Wingbacks...
Love the fabulous slipcover wingbacks...

Ahhh....what to do?!

Interesting Apparatus...

and by that, I mean Apparatus Studio has some of the most interesting lighting fixtures! The designers take found objects to create the most intriguing utilitarian light fixtures.

I can't wait to find the perfect client for these guys: 

Love the reuse of  the old rusted chains:

Oh, the wonderful world of Pinterest!

 This week on Pinterest I have learned how to clean my sterling silver in under 30 minutes without lifting a finger,
I have found at least 12 different ways to wear my denim blouse,

I have undoubtedly come across the best recipe for cooking Fried Green Tomato's

What in the word did I do before  the wonderful world of Pinterest?

See what else I've been pinning HERE!
