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.

IMG_3138 Remember what it looked like before? You can see how I took it all apart here.beauty1I 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.IMG_3131I 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!IMG_3135IMG_3140IMG_3142I 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…
