I Can't Believe It!

Ta da!
I almost want to nix that whole I Haven't Done Anything Yet. Because I absolutely cannot believe I've reupholstered this chair! This has to count as something!

My grandmother gave me this chair when I was in my early twenties, I believe. Needless to say, it's been awhile!   The covering matched my grandmother's old drapes and was seriously smoke stained (much more obvious when you take it apart).

I moved this chair around with me in my youth and always dreamed of making it new again. I even moved this chair back to my grandmother's house when I bought it in '05 and it still matched the drapes!

Now after a week of putzing through this makeover, it is finally done! And now it matches my drapes. Whew. I'm so tired.

It all started here with an old chair and scraps from my $3 fabric find at the antique store.
Here she was all stripped down.

  1. I'm just going to sit at home and gaze lovingly at it all night. I may take it out for Valentine's Day.
