This petite vintage wicker chair
was given to me by my friend, Barbara..
It's a sweet little piece, and in relatively good condition.
Except for the seat………
I peeled away layers………
all safety pinned on….
Until I got to this cover…..
Oh, but wait….
There was nothing to staple to….no wooden frame,
so I first sewed a layer of batting onto the original cover,
and hand stitched it
to the wire frame at the bottom.
I had this great black and white Pottery Barn duvet cover for sale in my booth…
I thought the graphic would be perfect for this chair, so I pulled it,
cut a top and a banding strip,
and pinned/sewed the banding along the top edge…….
Then I again whipstitched the bottom to the wire frame.
Since the wicker part was in really good condition,
I just used a Sharpie black paint pen to touch up here and there...
And it's in my booth at Greenwood Antiques.
I already had the black and white pillow.
A perfect ensemble!
The chair is for sale: $125.
Donations to the SheShe rehab pool are always appreciated!
And just wait 'til you see what I did with the rest of the duvet cover…….!!!!!!
