Sneak Peek at Chair Re-Do

I am doing a Sneak Peek, because, honestly, I thought I'd be done by now. I am stuck on the trim that covers the staples...I tried making matching corded trim myself, but it seems too small to cover all I need I have to find time to go to JoAnns and maybe find a natural jute-colored trim, or maybe just a plain white trim... I will have to see..

Here's where we started.....Craigslist 20.00 for the pair....

And here she is so far.......

What do you think? Do you like the white (I was vasilating between white and black, but I had so many black pieces I wanted to try something different) I will post the full story on what I did when its all done....

Make it a Great Day!!

  1. Hi, I just saw this on Finding Fabulous. I love what you have done, and I love the white. You can double up on your trim, called double welting, if it is too narrow. You did an awesome job!

  2. Found your blog through The Shabby Chic glad I did (: I LOVE the white paint and the fabric is beautiful! Lookin' good!


  3. I think the white looks great. And I love that fabric you choose! Can't wait to see it all finished up.

  4. I like your chair! I have the same problem choosing between black and white! :)

  5. I love the white and the fact that you did a modern fabric - it looks great!

  6. I love the white paint with that fabric. Looks great together!

  7. Looking beautiful! Love the fabric with the white frame.


  8. Thank you for all the supportive comments! It's motivating me to finish this one and its twin quickly!

  9. I'm a black furniture person also, only because I can never get the white to look completely white or unstreaky. Looking forward to the finished product. :)

  10. Love this chair and the fabric! What a great re-do!


Thanks for stopping by!! I love your comments!
