Chair Makeover

This is a project that has been on my to do list since 2010.  Isn't that horrible?  I had purchased this chair from an auction for $15.  I loved the style of it.  For Christmas (2010), my mom gave me some pretty damask fabric to upholster it with.  It has been sitting in my office all this time.  Shameful!

This past weekend it was finally finished!  My handy dandy son did the work with the help of his lovely assistant (my daughter).  He removed the old fabric, using it as a pattern for the new fabric.  Using a staple gun, he put on the new fabric.  There were areas where the finish had worn off so he reapplied some stain.

I think they did a great job!  I am so blessed to have such great kids!

I'm putting in the the back corner of my living room for a little reading nook.  It will give that end of the room a touch of blue.  Now I'm on the look out for a floor lamp to go behind it, but in the meantime, a plant will have to do.
