Not so cute right?
It had a flower detail that I wasn't in love with but it would work.
The fabric wasn't awful but it wasn't what I wanted for the room. Bet you can't guess what I used?!
So it was time to make her over. This was my first chair redo and small upholstering project. I had some yellow paint from a previous project and used that to paint this chair.
Isn't it the cutest chair you ever did see?
As you can see, I used my lovely yellow damask fabric yet again! I also added a cushion to the seat to make it more comfortable.
I just love the yellow!!
The OK flower detail.
I did learn a few things on this project. First of all, I hope to never use a paint brush on a chair EVER again. I am extremely impatient and don't pay attention to drips. It is no fun going around all the curves and edges. I have another chair redo to do and I will be using spray paint for sure! The other thing I learned is that when you add cushion the the seat don't pull the fabric super tight but just taut. It's not the perfect chair but I do love it :)
Here she is one more beautiful time!!
