A Wingback Chair Makeover

141,798 Views
I'm so excited to be a participant in the November Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest with the theme "Take a Seat"!
This time The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest has us taking a seat... and flipping it into a new life with amazing winning fabric designs from Minted.
I saw this badly stained wingback chair getting tossed out on the curb, so I asked the guy if I could take it and redo it. He said, "Sure, help yourself!"
I said, "Thank ya, kindly!"
Ha... this piece of trash ended up as my choice subject for the contest.
The upholstery was quite the mess. But the chair had good bare bones.
I started with the cute little legs. After realizing I was not going to paint them, I sanded them down to refinish them. Look what I found...
natural tree growth! That's just too amazing. I ended up clear waxing the gorgeousness.
As for the rest of that chair, I wondered what I got myself into.
Yikes!
After several days... and nights... that felt like 40...
I saw the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Great job!!!! Nice to see someone actually take the time to re-upholster instead of painting the fabric with chalk paint.
