Garage Flip

I just finished a new project for my sewing room.   I saw this old fan my hubby had in his garage last month and he was planning on throwing it out. I SAID HOLD ON A MINUTE.  I envision a very cool seat.

Here is the before:

My new sewing room has turquoise trim so I thought it would be a great color for the fan too.

And the fan still works very well.

There is a lid to the fan --- so perfect for upholstery.  We cut plywood and then used foam and batting before the final upholstery fabric. Worked perfect to attach the top. Don't you love the fabric--pink and turquoise to match all the furniture in my room!!

After I find a rug that I like and a new window treatment I will be done. I'm ready to start sewing some winter clothes, maybe a new coat!!!

That is a great re-cycle. I really love the material you chose for the seat cushion. I've never seen a fan like that either!

Patti said...

That is an amazing transformation. That's really creative. I guess it's the opposite of a hot seat since the fan will be blowing.

Oh Ann,

You are so talented! It's a perfect sewing room seat, and it coordinated with everything! Isn’t it fun finding blue?

I'm looking forward to reading your comment on my blue striped kayak post. Please come back.

Happy Blue Monday!
