i've had this chair for over ten years. a friend's mom was going to set it out with the trash and i saved its life. there is nothing wrong with it other than the missing piece on the back, which is only decorative. the old fabric is a maroonish velvet, which i liked in high school, but not so much anymore. after watching this instructional video from thread banger, i thought it would be a snap. but after removing the seat and cutting the fabric i realized we didn't have any staples for the staple gun. normally this would be a quick trip to the hardware store, but we had other errands to run so i had to wait to finish my project. four hours and a boogie burger later, i was able to return. it had already been reupholstered a couple of times, so i had to cut away at the old fabrics so there would be room for the new fabric and screws. once all that was done i attached the new fabric and this is my new chair -->
you can see pish posh anxiously waiting at the door. this is her new favorite chair. i thought about figuring out how to make the missing piece and re-staining the whole thing, but realized it was kind of nice a little worn and i really didn't feel like spending the extra time and money on it right now. i got the fabric at the free market. it looked like it used to be a quilt. here is a close up -->
now we just need people to come over. what do you say, want to come over and sit on it?
