My new happy place!
I believe in surrounding ourselves with stuff that makes us happy. So as I slowly renovate my 'newish' home (moved into a 1970's home 1 1/2 years ago), I am adding happy furnishings as I can afford them. I always wanted a hot pink wingback chair but could not budget in the quality piece I wanted. Finally my dream came true!
This past summer I picked up this wingback chair at a garage sale.
Its a really well made chair but needs a new cushion. Great deal!
I took the chair to the upholstery shop.
They stripped the chair and let me come back before doing the upholstering so I could sand down the legs, then spray them with silver spray paint.
Use quality fabric that is specifically for furniture use-
This is the fabric I used to reupholster the chair. Its from Maxwell and is extremely soft and yummy! I mean its called 'Delicious' for a reason!
I just received the finished chair today!
When reupholstering a piece of furniture, remember that this is your opportunity to add nail heads, tufting, and any trim! I chose chrome nail heads and decided not to do tufting to keep it modern.
