So… it hasn’t exactly taken me six months to complete this chair, it’s been finished for a while, but it has taken me six months to get around to photographing it! I loved the arms and legs on this chair from the moment I saw it – I knew I wanted to have a wash of white and grey milk paint as a finish and then find just the right fabric. Downton Abbey offered a little help in the fabric department – I’m a big fan of the show and had admired the curtains in one of the episodes (Season 2, I think). Anyway, I happened to stumble upon the exact fabric at Joann’s and it was a done deal. It’s called Bedazzle (silver, I think), by Waverly.
Remember what it looked like before? You can see how I took it all apart here.I stripped this chair down to the frame, which needed some repairing, then built it back up again by adding new burlap webbing, foam and batting.I decided against using upholstery tacks around all of the seams, because it seemed much too intimidating – this is really my first major upholstery project! I hot glued the grey trim onto the fabric to finish it off!I couldn’t part with this piece, so it’s got a special spot in my living room. Like my new stencilled wall? We recently had new flooring installed, so I need to go back and finish the stencil at the bottom…
