Furry Franny Friday

There's not much you need to know when viewing these photos except that every time we have a home project that requires getting the ladder out...this happens: 
If you follow along with me on Instagram, chances are you may have seen some of these. But what i'd love to know from you is what color should i paint that ladder?? We don't have the heart to put it away because Franny loves it so much, so if it's going to stay out it should at least be a little cuter, right? Suggestions?

Chair Flair

This is the boring chair that i happen to spend a lot of time in.
Probably too much time!
It's been this boring since the day i brought it home from Ikea almost ... hmm ... 4 years ago? I've tried not to dwell on its lackluster style because honestly, i don't see it much while i'm sitting in it. But i've simply tired of its gray blahness and well, a little extra style could do my studio some good. So...until i find my dream chair (Pinterest here i come!), i thought a little facelift was in order. This is pretty much a no-brainer DIY, and would require you to have a similar chair seat/back to work the fabric around. But in case you'd like to know, here are the very few key steps:
Then measure the dimensions of the seat and cut enough fabric to wrap around the edges and with about 3" extra to tuck underneath. Do the same for the chair back. Use a flat head screwdriver to push the fabric between the cushion and the chair frame on both the seat and chair back ...
... and you're done!
I used the Wayside Garden print in Marine from my Honey Honey fabric collection
Now i might just keep it for another 4 years! Well, maybe...
