Project #752 and Counting...

Outside a local antique store I found this great project chair for only $16! I’ve never redone the upholstery on a chair but would like to learn a new skill. I love the details on this chair but am a bit undecided on the new finish. Wondering about a style I spotted in a magazine with a light, creamy antiquing glaze over a darker base color. It gives the wood a wonderful old European look. The fabric is an easy decision – a light linen look with a script design.

This is a chair that probably won’t make it into an Attic sale. One must indulge once in a while! I just hope I complete the project before the house is redecorated (again).

If you have any helpful advice on reupholstering, I'd love to hear from you!
