My Chevron Crush Continues

 I had a few yards of fabric leftover after recovering my dining room chairs.  I decided to use the leftover fabric to recover this chair.

It started out looking like this.

Then I recovered it using inexpensive fabric, that I didn't love.

now I'm in love.

The chair sits in my living room.  I made a few changes to the room since this post.  I purchased a larger rug and made small chevron pillow for the sofa.

Then I spied this afghan on Etsy...gosh I love Etsy!  and so my chevron crush continues...
