This Little Chair Is Going To Market!!!

I have finally finished it and I couldn’t be more happy with the results!

After stripping it down to the bare bones, I gave the wood two coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in the color Champlain.  Then it was time to redress it in a new bright and fresh material!

Take a peek at what it used to look like…

The back is covered with the reverse colors in the same print.  I think it really adds to the already unique character of the chair.

Sooooooo pretty!  It is going to be taken to The Little Deer Market on December 5.  If anyone is interested in purchasing it.   I’m sooooo tempted to keep it … but I can’t.

I also made a few pillows the other day to take to the market as well, this is one of them … love the simplicity of it with just some vintage lace.

96Well, I’m off to the garage!

  5. A beautiful restyle! The contrasting, yet complementary fabric elevates the look. I also like the dark blue trim used throughout. I, too, have a chair fancy – not brave enough yet to do what you’ve done! Sandra

      Thank you Sandra! Chairs just feel so welcoming don’t they? The trim is actually denim… I forgot to mention it in the post! It sort of changes the feel to “casual fancy” :0) I hope you have a great day!

  8. WOW, Terry!! The before and after is incredible! You won’t have that hanging around your booth for long. It’s stunning!

  9. This chair is gorgeous, Terry! I love the fabric choice, too! I must confess, sometimes I say that I don’t care for certain styles, like mix-matching fabric on wingback chairs, then all of a sudden along comes something like your chair which causes me to rethink the former opinion. You knocked it out of the park! This chair of yours is tastefully done. It’s classic and people do love blue. I think you might reconsider holding on to it. It sure looks pretty in your home, against those pretty floors and those awesome walls.

    That little pillow is darling, too! I love the fabric and how charming it is.

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
