anyway enjoy the before and After.
Oh! you know in my moment of excitement and with my many projects going on all at once, I get ahead of myself, This chair by the way isn't even finished. But its finished enough for me to show you. And for you to get the idea. I will completely finish it and the other one I showed you in my daughters Princess Room today or tomorrow.
This is what the chair used to look like:
This is what she looks like now
You might also notice there isn't a back shot of the chair. That's because I haven't added the rest of the piping yet. (That's the part that's not complete) But as soon as shes finished I will show you again.
With this chair I decided since I am going to use it as my office chair along with my new revamped desk that the cording as it came was very natural looking, so I decided not to cover it with fabric I simply applied it straight to the chair. This chair screams "Beach" to me thus the light and airy fabric choice.
I purchased a yard and a half of fabric and only used a yard, I will be making a NO SEW PILLOW with the remaining fabric. I purchased it at Hancock's Fabrics on sale for 50% off so I ended up paying less then $20.00 for it, I already had the piping from the Yellow and Grey Chair Redo. And the Chair itself was Free.
I spray painted her a metallic silver after priming her of course, ( the same paint from my dresser hardware) this product here. The top looks gold but its really silver
I began by carefully removing all the fabric, trying not to rip anything because I always use the old clothes as a template for the new clothes.
So much for not ripping the old clothes right? Hey sometimes it happens
And there in a pile lay the " OLD TORN AND TATTERED CLOTHES "
Shes ready to be dressed and fantsy'ied up ( I know that word isn't in the dictionary) :)
And since I was Redoing two chairs that were the same design, I completed the rocker first for my daughters room so I used the same template later to cut the fabric for this chair. But I will show you how the pattern looked with the other fabric
The end.....and that's the story folks of an old chair " UP-DO"
Have a good Weekend Guys!!!!!
