Chair Project: Changing My Mind

Do you ever finish a project and dislike it?  Or totally change your mind about how it should look?  Happens to me quite often.  Darn . . .more work!  I redid this Goodwill chair on Tuesday.  Last night, I ripped the cushion apart and totally remade it. 

This time, I repurposed one of  Wednesday's Target finds, a large flour sack towel from Joanna Gaines' "Hearth & Hand" Collection, for the fabric.  With careful positioning, I just managed to get one seat cushion out of each 30" square towel.

Here is how the chair looked after my original re-do.

As I lived with it for a day or two, I decided that I fabric I originally chose was just too orangy-pink, and too shiny,  for my kitchen.

So here it is this morning. 

More muted. More textured.
 I like it much better.

The gold in the chairs encouraged me to add some daffodils to the kitchen.  I got out a few of  Wednesday's Target "Dollar Spot" Finds, the tray and the cake stand, and made a quick vignette.
The vintage ceramic animals were purchased by my parents on their Honeymoon in 1946.
I'm so happy to have them.

 I guess that for those of us who love working on our homes,
 sometimes it's O.K. to change our minds.

Does that ever happen to you?
