A year or so ago, we found this chair next to a dumpster and I just knew I had to take it home
We bought some material and re-covered it – you can read about that here – and ended up with this
Which we loved. Buuut, our cats and a house-move later took it’s toll and we decided that it was time to give it a new look. Since we now live by the beach, a beachy look seemed appropriate. I saw this lovely stripe (love stripes!) on the weekend and I knew it would be perfect for this chair and would also go a long way to brightening up our living room
But first, a coat of white paint
It didn’t take long to cut out the material for the seat- I just used the old material as a guide, under the watchful eye of my supervisor
And I sewed the material to the original backing
And then while I was at work, hubby put it all together
Not too sure about those tacks anymore – so I’ll probably change the back – watch this space. But in the meantime, it really adds a pop of colour to our living room.
