Revisiting the Floral Chair Disaster

Not too long ago, I made a post about an ugly floral chair I planned to reupholster in a charcoal gray fabric. Well fast forward to the present and I have yet to find a charcoal gray fabric that I like. It was either too light, too dark, lightweight, or void of texture. I was looking for a medium weight linen look fabric, but since that didn’t work out for me I have to come up with a plan B. Plan B means a new fabric choice. I’ve mentioned several times that I am very indecisive and I tend to go back and forth on decor choices.  So, enough rambling…what did I pick? A bold black and white stripe fabric. I completely went away from gray.

I really hate to put your eyes through the agony, but here is what the chair currently looks like:

Here’s the fabric I purchased Canopy Stripe Black/White by Premiere Prints:

And since you all know how I like to use pinterest to solidify my hasty purchases. Here’s a round up of beautiful chairs covered in black and white striped fabric.

I hope my chair looks just as good as one of these when I’m done. I’m pretty sure my previous moodboard is an afterthought right now since I haven’t been able to find anything remotely close to what I selected. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
