I love chairs. I get it from my Mama...she is chair obsessed. I found this bad boy in a second hand shop about 2 years ago or so. I loved him immediately and he was worth the $45 I paid for sure.
It is super comfortable....but not the most beautiful. It was old vinyl and it was cracking and the buttons were starting to pull through in a couple places.
Doesn't he have great lines?
Plus a dainty footstool.
I have been waiting and waiting and plotting about mister chair. I decided for Christmas, that a recovering was what I wanted. My mom's friend Esther is just the lady for the job as she is a super seamstress and, as you will see, great with upholstery too. She suggested a site online and I found great fabric on the cheap. I just got back my chair on Thursday and I am super pumped to share his new look! Isn't he a handsome chair!?
I wish the fabric had been slightly darker so it stood out more on my walls, but I just love his color. I won't always live in this house so it doesn't matter anyway. I really should have refinished the legs too...but hey, there's always time to do that.
Now he is gussied up with a throw and a pillow, both add to his fancy new look.
Now for the surprise for Esther...I have an ottoman calling your name!
