Many months ago, I bought a vintage chair at Goodwill, with the intention of having it redone to use in a reading nook in my bedroom. After quite a bit of heel dragging, the "after" is finally ready to be revealed. Here's a reminder of the "before", covered in a worn out rose colored velvet:
And here's a peek at the "after", covered in a taupe and blue bird patterned fabric that I found on Fabrics.com.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, although I will say that it was by no means a bargain. Even though the chair and the fabric were only $50 combined, the price of labor to have it reupholstered made it cost as much as a brand new chair. I think it was worth it, though, to end up with something that's one of a kind and exactly what I wanted.
Next up, choosing some art to create a wall grouping to finish off the reading nook. Stay tuned!
