After a whirlwind weekend the chair reveal is finally here! The pillows didn’t turn out as I planned so it is just the chairs for now.
To refresh your memory this what they used to look like when I bought them off Craigslist.
Though the velvet fabric in the “Before” shot looks OK, it was dirty and musty. When it came to reupholstering the seat cushions I took a giant leap of faith and decided to replicate the original look with two layers for cording. I tell ya, reupholstering these babies is strictly for the sewing experienced. If you are not into sewing then a better option would be to skip the first single welt cord altogether.
‘Coz of the busy geometric pattern of the new fabric I left out the tufting on the back cushions.
The best part is that not only do the chairs look good now they are super comfy.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything special for Father’s day?
