New Look for an Old Chair!

I'm not sure where I stumbled across this blog, but I saw this project and fell IN LOVE with the idea.  The author indicates that a similar chair was done with stickers about in Better Homes and Garden's 100 Decorating Ideas for under $100. The chair was all white, very chic, and quite lovely. This chair is more bold and fun! A piece of furniture that says "hey look at me!"
