I bought a small scale chair at a nearby thrift store a few months ago with the intention to reupholster it, but other projects have taken precedence instead. It has a floral red and green flocked velvet pattern on the front and solid green velvet on the backside. In other words it’s ugly! I can’t help but look at this chair and think about Christmas decorations. I’ll just show you instead of going on and on…
I had to look past the floral nightmare and recognize the potential in this chair. After I bought it I did question my sanity and my addiction to armchairs, but the chair does have great lines and I liked the slight curve to the back. I’m pretty sure that whatever fabric I reupholster this chair in, it’ll be an instant upgrade!
I’m leaning towards a fabric in a charcoal gray color.
The velvet chair is a beauty with those casters wheels isn’t it. Too bad velvets and cats don’t go together, but the color is lovely. Maybe I can do contrasting white piping to make the chair pop next to my teal dresser.
Maybe I can get the courage to tuft without existing holes…I doubt it though! Or maybe I should go vibrant and do yellow??
What do you all think would look better next to my teal dresser? If you can’t tell I suffer from indecisiveness and pinterest doesn’t help.
