The Wing Back Chair

2

November 15, 2013 by Terry

Remember I told you that a lady came by and bought the striped dresser but but continued to shop in my house?  Well, one of the pieces she bought was a winged back chair that I had bought many years ago from a thrift store.  It was an ugly burgundy/purple colour.  I do not have a before picture, sorry!  

I had seen so many people use and post about painter’s drop cloths and decided to try it out for myself…   I stripped it down to the bare bones, painted the legs and added castors…then upholstered it in painter’s drop cloth…..

WOW!  I love how it turned out!!!

I made an accent pillow out of the left over fabric.  I had also seen people paint on fabric in some of the blogs I had visited and thought I’d give it a try… I painted some stripes on the pillow and…well…. It turned out great!

I know… there are “leg” prints on the seat cushion…My children thought they’d try out the chair….did I  mention there are five of them????   Yah…first and last time sitting on a light fabric chair!!!  LOL! :0)  I am not a crazy mom… but… when you’ve worked hard on something like this you really don’t want “sticky” people sitting on it..am I right??  :0)

This is my beautiful assistant Rosie…She mostly helps with hugs etc……but she’s always there when I need her!  :0)

Anyhoo…  I have since bought another wingback chair to replace it (future post!!!) and I think I will do the same treatment to it….this one has prettier legs, french legs to be exact!  She will be lovely!  I haven’t had time yet but I intend to start her in the near future.

Have a great weekend all!

Smiles!

Playing along with @prodigalpieces for #trashure this week. This large frame used to house a tacky old #vintage picture but with a little #milkpaint it has transformed into this large chalkboard. (Btw... it says EAT not FAT lol! ) what's not to love in this photo! 💕#thecuratorscollection Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop.
