Since I have "champagne taste on a beer budget" you know I could never afford to spend $495 on a chair like this! This first chair is the one I purchased at a flea market last summer for $15. I painted it and then upholstered it with blue linen that I found at the thrift store.... 4 yards for $4.00. I've showed this before on my blog but that was before I put the welting on. I think I should have used smaller welting so I may redo it someday!
Here is the "before" photo:
Updated: The instructions I used for reupholstering the chair were from a book called Singer Upholstery Basics Plus: Complete Step-by-Step Photo Guide It gave instructions on how to do the welting too! It wasn't hard at all! The fabric is attached with a staple gun. The welting is done on a sewing machine and then hot glued on.
Have a great weekend! I'm so happy it's Friday!
