Yesterday I told you a little bit about this chair.
I picked it up at my local thrift store. It was a good solid chair. (I bounced around in it to make sure.)
I spent the first part of last week tearing it apart and found a hard wood frame. Something that a professional upholster told me to look for, so I was excited about this. It also meant that an unprofessional like me could get a away with some mistakes. Example- tearing out what I had just stapled to it because I did it wrong.
Deciding how I was going to recover it was a long process. I bought the chair back in the fall and would look at it and be stumped until I saw this. A chair from Velvet Perch.
Isn't this a pretty chair. They have done such lovely job and very creative.
This was what I wanted.
This would be my second upholstery project and didn't think that this may be over my head. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.
I went online and ordered my fabric, and began to sew. The only issue I ever thought I'd have was the cushion. Would I make it right, would it fit over the foam again properly and surprise of surprises, I did have an issue. But not the one I was expecting. My poor little sewing machine was not a happy camper sewing through all those layers, but it made it through in the end.
So now I have this
I like my chair. :)
