Last fall I picked up this chair for a few dollars. It was in desperate need of a makeover, but I had never upholstered the back of a chair; I knew it was possible I just didn’t know how. I used a couple of sites to help me figure it all out and now I have a much nicer chair.
Hard to believe, but I put a lot of time into this make over, mostly because of the learning curve to get the back done. I wasn’t thinking ahead when cutting my fabric, and didn’t have enough left to make the welting. Instead I used white to blend in to the painted wood. I did learn how to make double welt, though not perfectly, this time.
The fabric was purchased at Tonic Living and is Ashbury Ikat, ink.
The faux bamboo goes perfectly with my thrifted Thomasville Allegro desk. A match made in heaven.
The gold casters are just perfect. Squeal.
