French Chair Part 3

I finally finished!! Happy Dance. It has taken me way too long to finish this project. But in my defence, I have had many other things going on in my life. Two babies born, trips must be made to spoil said babies, gift also must be made for beautiful babies. Love my babies. Anyway on to the rest of the post.

I originally had planned on covering this chair in drop cloth fabric, but then found this awesome fabric at Joanne's with 50% off so was affordable. Then I was going to trim it in an off white gimp but found the black in my stash and after doing it decided it was too much. However, after living with it for awhile decided I made the right choice, I love the contrast. Hope you do too.

So here is a recap, this is what it looked like before:
And now. YAY.
I am sharing on these blogs.

    1. It was amazing to find the fabric where I did since I had checked many times before I found it. I have been working on this chair forever so finally checked right before I finished and there was the fabric. I did a happy dance around the store as I grabbed the fabric. Thanks for visiting.

    1. Thanks Lynnie, it was amazing to me to find that fabric there since I had looked and looked for way too long and actually had given up the search. Then one day the angels were singing and there it was! I guess that was my reward for procrastinating for so long.

  19. What a beautiful transformation! Great job! Recovering/reupholstering is something I haven't been brave enough to attempt yet.

    Thanks so much for stopping by The Cozy Old Farmhouse and commenting on the "junky" vintage cabin. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
