Project # 2

I recently finished reupholstering my second wingback chair, and I'm totally in love with it! I highly recommend going this route, instead of buying expensive vintage wingback chairs.  If you're lucky like I was, you'll get the chairs for free, but keep an eye on Kijiji and you may come across a gem!  I spent about $90 on this fabric, and I already had the staples and staple guns.  This is a project for anyone, you don't need to have experience reupholstering...I didn't!

My "Project # 1" post was of the first chair that I did.  I've seen these chairs in some pretty interesting patterns, mostly because they are so old and dated.  While the fabric on these chairs weren't HORRIBLE, they did need to be cleaned and updated.

We went with a brighter fabric for the first chair (as seen below).  For the second chair, I wanted a more neutral fabric.  I knew the second I saw this leafy pattern, that I had to have it!  It was perfect and I'm even more in love with it.

This is the chair before, and after with the fabric for the first one.

And this is the after of the second fabric I chose!

I'll get around to posting a bigger picture of the whole chair soon!
