Aren’t these lovely? One old chair, gets a new look with paint and vintage table clothe.
I have to start by confessing that I am not an expert on upholstery, in fact I’ve never upholstered anything before. I have made slip covers but never have I stripped naked a piece of furniture and re-clothed it in a new look – but there’s a first time for everything. So I started carefully pulling off fabric.
I found old cotton/horse hair/straw stuffing, burlap, metal upholstery grip-strips (my terminology, probably not the correct term) and springs inside of my old chair .
Stripping off the old was easy, deciding what the new would be was more difficult.
I’m kind’a vibing pom-poms.
Finally I decided on using a vintage tablecloth (a cutter one), a soft warm white paint and pom-poms.
Old chair, new look
