Chair project…yet another.

So
When you see a made in ‘Merica Lee industry chair
at your local habitat store
You tend to buy it
I do anyway
Particularly when said chair was all of 30 clams.

Yeah…it has a few stains. It was 30 bucks.
THEN
You uncover a steal of a deal…like under 6 dollahs for 4 yards
of a beautifully woven cotton  fabric

That has a fun little tribal vibe.
It has one Big..big black dog big…stripe down the middle in pewter.

So then you head to your magic closet
you know the one….lippin full with textiles and fabric and tablecloths
‘cause you might have a leeeetle problem not buying said items
and you find Henry….The Thomas Paul whale who was swimming away in there…

and you think
Hmmmmm.
Then you pull out an old Swiss army blanket
and you say
umhmm.
 * the colors actually work well together...cannot get the camera to prove it though

I'm cracking up, seeing this today.
My cousin is going to give me one of my grandma's old slipper chairs, this week (very low to the ground) and my mom is giving me another old antique chair. (she told me last night) BOTH need reupholstering ... I need your help!

Also, I can't remember if you do it yourself. I don't think I could without some serious education. Anyway, I might need to post and ask advice. You always come up with the coolest ideas!! I need to channel you!

Lee Industry chairs are great. I have two that I found at a junk store for $50.00 each. I'm using them for dining room chairs. They were a little low, so I added small brass wheels and now they work perfectly. Mine are a little faded, but I like the fabric and it is in pretty decent shape. Also, I have several other chairs that are in more desperate need of reupholstering. It is just so much work!

So excited about this. I'm still very much in love with your prior chair projects. :)

Lucinda....It really is easy once you get going.I pull off as many of the pieces as I can to use as a pattern. I will often even reuse the metal tacking strip. This one *should* be fairly easy.

Ry....show us the GOODS!!

Sandra...sweet...come along for the ride!
