My sister picked up this stripped chair from a yard sale this past weekend.
Great bones.......Some of the springs had come off,
but I was able to reattach them.
After I did that, I painted the frame in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in
Greek Blue. Haven't used this color in a while. It makes me happy.
I distressed the edges.
And buffed to a sheen.
I rebuilt the upholstery with lots of foam and batting.
I wanted something fun to go with the blue.
This yellow drapery did the trick!!!!!
For the back,
I used a striped rug that's been in my booth.
I used the bound edge at the left and top.
And then, on the right side, I cut off the bound edging, stapled,
then folded and stapled the cut rug to that.
Then I added gimp to cover all the staples.......
It's finished and oh so fun!!!!!!!!
My favorite part, of course.
I love surprises!!!!!!!
Inspected and approved by Mom!!!!!!
It's going to my booth at RVA Antiques on the Avenue
For sale: $249.
