I attended the Country Living Fair
at Stone Mountain, Georgia
back in October.
One of my favorite things was seeing all the
furniture covered in funky fabrics.
I kept it in the back of my mind,
hoping to find a chair inexpensive enough to experiment with.
I found this wing back chair at my local Goodwill for $16
and decided it would be perfect.
Wing back chairs are classic.
not so much.
I love duck cloth. It has a little weight to it
and comes in great patterns.
My daughter, Carrie, sewed the cushion &
my friend, Cindy, came over to help with the body of the chair.
I had studied several blogs with tutorials on recovering
wing back chairs & I had every intention of following them. But we took a few shortcuts. It still turned out funky & fabulous!
And, there's nothing a little E6000 won't fix
(just don't tell anybody)!
On another note...
After all this time blogging,
I still have not perfected taking the perfect picture
Should I take them inside?
Should I take them outside for better lighting?
My poor son, is the one who usually has to deal
with me trying to figure this out.
He's the one carrying furniture all over the property.
I wanted to share these pictures because I thought they were funny. John, doesn't like for me to take his picture. But I managed to take these and wanted to share...
Yes, he's carrying the chair on his head!
I kept waiting for him to say, "Look mom, no hands!"
Have you ever recovered a wing back chair?
Did you find it hard or easy?
I think this was probably the first and last one I will recover!
But, I know, never say never!
