Sometimes I’m itching for a little update in my house but when I look around I see lots of tiny 5-45 minute project that I could do.  And then I put them off because they don’t seem fun.  But ever since I first made the No Sew Fur Covered Chair, I wished I hadn’t distressed the wood.  I wanted glossy arms and legs (I’m not talking about baby oil and my suntan habits from the 80’s) but for the chair.  I knew it would be a fun balance with the shaggy Flintstone style wolf fur.

The best part?  The finished chair was incredibly rewarding.  More so than I thought it would be.  I thought I would never really notice the small change and so I didn’t have much motivation to get it done.  Now that it’s painted, I’m still surprised at what a difference it made (even if I’m the only one who can tell).

What I learned?  Something in my house that is 90% done gives me 90% satisfaction (which is really great! and a great place to stop at times).  Something in my house that is 100% done give me 150% satisfaction.  That’s decorating math.
