Hello, lovely readers! Hope you all are having a great day! I have a makeover treat for you today. I’ve finally finished upholstering the black and white striped chair for my bedroom. My determination to finish this chair was even too much for my injured thumb, which I had accidentally shut in the door. OUCH! It feels a lot better today than it did on Sunday, but I did hit it a few more times with the mallet in the upholstery process. I may or may not have screamed out in pure agony. I’m actually sadder that I had to remove my nail polish to examine the injury.
By now you’re probably wondering why I’ve spent so much time talking about my stupid thumb and less time talking about the makeover. Here’s a quick look at the fugly before. Green, red and cream floral flocked fabric=fugly.
Now here’s the lovely after! Ta-da! I purchase 4 yards of Black & White Canopy Stripe fabric by Premier Prints for $38 with shipping from Warehouse Fabrics but only used about 2 3/4 yards. I plan to make some pillows with the leftover. I ordered the fabric on a Thursday night, it shipped Friday and I received it Tuesday morning. I’m very happy with my first experience with Warehouse Fabrics and can’t recommend them enough.
Doesn’t it look so pretty next to the teal dresser? When I first painted my dresser teal I didn’t think that black and white would be the colors I’d pair with it, but I love it!
The chair wasn’t too difficult to upholster, but please believe it’s not perfect. I’m not a perfectionist so it doesn’t bother me. As long as the stripes look aligned I’m satisfied.
Grr! I forgot to fix the knob on the dresser again! Oh well….I have few things to finish up on the chair, but I’m not in any rush right now to complete it. Hope you enjoyed my chair makeover.
