A long time ago… in 2010 when I first started buying old estate sale finds, I found this chair.
I immediately took off the old fabric and torn webbing. I then had a hole with no seat, no board, no idea what to do. Then the chair sat. About 3 years ago I took an upholstery class offered locally by our community college but that still didn’t tell me what to do with an empty hole. I spent hours on the internet looking at other before and after photos and dreaming about refinishing this chair and building a furniture refreshing business.
I am happy to say that I conquered this chair.
I painted the chair with a homemade chalk paint recipe with heirloom white paint. I distressed and waxed the frame and finally tackled the upholstery. Which, surprisingly so, the upholstery part was easy. So easy when I was walking through a local antique market I found this chairs cousin.
A week later and we have matching cousins perfect for any table!
Can’t you imagine them around a table for two?
