This one definitely qualifies as "shabby chic"-- more shabby than chic but what fun I had doing it and after all, it's all about ME.

These chair pockets were so simple to make!  I've never used a sewing machine before and was able to make a whole class set.  The hardest part was finding fabric that was affordable.  You need about a yard for each chair pocket, I think.  Each table has a different color chair pocket so I call them by colors to line up or move around the room.  The chair pockets hold their work folder and reading book.  They are very easy to wash... just be sure there are no hidden treasures inside!

Bought this chair at moving sale.  Began to get it ready to paint when I discovered it is solid, beautiful oak. Cleaned it- left it without wax,etc for the worn/ shabby look.  Made this piece and covered seat today. It makes me laugh and that is always good.
