Here is my latest project. It is part DIY and part professional upholstery. This chair used to belong to my grandma and had already been refinished once that I know of. It was worn and tired. We thought about selling it but on second thought decided it was worth keeping.
First thing I did was strip it down and paint it with homemade black chalk paint. If you want the recipe check out this former post.
I purchased the fabric online at Online Fabric Store. The fabric was under $10 yard and is an indoor outdoor fabric. I figured that was good to stand up to abuse.
My goal was to recover it myself. Well, I can't do everything. I tried. I admit I was disappointed but figured it would take too much time and I was be too frustrated. So it just wasn't worth it. So we took it to my favorite place for upholstery - Upholstery House in Duluth.
I bought the little garden stool from Wayfair for about $100. It makes a cute little table, don't you think?
Now that the rocking chair has been redone, I feel it has been given a new life. Maybe I'll be able to pass it on to my grandchildren one day.
Thanks for stopping by...
Until next time,
