Drawing on the Furniture!
For a while now I have been feeling inspired by this post on the wonderful "improvised life" blog.
One day I was scrabbling desparately for ideas for Ben's birthday. Hampered by both lack of time and lack of funds, I sat on the sofa hoping for inspiration. Then my eyes rested on his ancient battered Ikea chair.
The chair has an off white cover and was looking very sorry for itself with a big black ink stain and other patches of grubbiness. Perfect!
I washed and dried it the night before his birthday and then, when he went off to work, we grabbed the fabric pens and set to work.
And here is the finished result. we covered it in a big sheet and a bow and unveiled it when Ben got home from work. He loved it.
Needless to say Yeubi and Boo love it too.
