I haven't done any sort of embroidery or cross stitching projects in many years, so I was really excited to give it a go!

I had made a Flamingo Friend crochet pattern earlier this Summer, so I wanted to make this guy with a similar look.


How to Refinish an Armchair with Chalk Paint

I have refinished lots of furniture over the years, using various materials, but I have never painted an armchair.
