LIttle Chair, All Grown Up

Little Chair, Little Chair, what do you think? Do you feel lighter than air, fresh as a daisy, spic 'n span?

I really feel good that this project is done! (See previous posting for "before" photos.) Sometimes our projects develop an unfinished life of their own so it can be an accomplishment to finish a big one. Little chair might not seem like a big project but it was scary since I was borrowing a (new to me) paint treatment shared by Miss Mustard Seed and having a first go at reupholstery. And this was a gut job - stripped right down to the frame, where there are actually now four different hues of paint. This takes time, but really adds character to the wood.

Little Chair is going with us and will be up for sale at the Funky Junk Antique Show next Saturday and Sunday, April 9-10. Come say Hi!

I added a chocolate velvet damask fabric to the back.

And now I'm excited to work on two or three other awesome chairs that have been patiently waiting their turn. They'll have to roll the dice to see who gets the new, amazing fabric I found online for one of them...

Love the chair! We have a couple that are very similar in the basement just waiting to have some TLC. I think that they might make their first appearance at Farm Chicks. Looking forward to seeing you at Funky Junk!
