....aaaaand, I'm back!

2 weeks!

I can't believe it's been that long since I posted last!

Well, we've been wrapping up summer around here and things got a little crazy for awhile.  But I have managed to get in a few fun crafts and wanted to share with you my office chair redo.

Remember that it looked like this:


It certainly was not hideous, but it wasn't really my taste, and I must confess that I had a moment of doubt when I was taking off the "leather" {and found out that it really WAS leather...albeit vinyl-looking maroon leather} but I forged ahead anyway.

I found some really cute zebra upholstery fabric and was going to use that for the cushion, but when I set it up next to the freshly-painted chair, it didn't feel right...so I looked through my fabric and found my old friend, Burlap, and it clicked.   I'm not sure if I will like it forever, but it was a pretty simple job, once I decided on fabric. 

Anywho,

here's how it turned out!


For those of you with extra-sharp eyes, you may have noticed that there is no trim.  I'm still deciding what to do...leave the stapled look {which I think goes nicely with the rusticity of the burlap}, find a good coordinating fabric trim, or attempt upholstery tacks...which my daughter thinks are fun to pull out...

What do you think?

Really nice transformation, the paint job really brings out the details.

Pamela said...

So pretty! Go for a pretty trim!

Pretty chair! Why not just make a double welt from a drop cloth? The colors would be similar, but woven tight enough to work. IMO, a sharp contrasting trim would be too much.

It looks great! I just bought a very similar chair that needs new fabric. Was it difficult to recover, especially the places on the arms?

Thanks!
Pam
