I am in LOVE with my vintage chair.
I am LEARNING how to re-upholster...and I WILL get better!
Here is how I found this chair.
A friend that I have painted some things for gave me a "heads up" about a garage clean out that was going on at her uncle's house.
I was on my way....
I bought this chair for $5. Yep, you read that right...$5.
A little rough, mainly just dirty...but, I knew I could figure out how to re-upholster.
Without any real knowledge on what I was doing (nor did I have a plan) I tore the fabric off.
Dust flew out as I ripped the fabric off. What had I done?
This may have been over my head...but, I wasn't giving up!
I am glad I kept at it...not bad for a ROOKIE!
I painted the frame of the chair in what was left of my Annie Sloan Old White...
Covered the seats and back in a canvas drop cloth I washed and bleached...
I used a simple trim I found on Amazon in an ivory color...
Not at ALL perfect...but, I LOVE it!
There is another chair waiting for me to work on...I know my next shot at it will be better!
Drop Cloth $20 (I used about $5 worth of that!)
Upholstery Cording $12...with some left for another chair!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend...and a Blessed Easter!
Love & Junk~
