Chair Redesign

Awesome Remodels 02.10.14
Another chair restored from junk, this I found sitting in a store here in Duluth. I picked her up one afternoon tucked her in my wagon and brought her home. The hunt for the right fabric began. I wanted something simple but yet made a statement. I named this one 'Gypsy' for her simplicity from the crisp white cotton fabric and carefree dandelions ready to take over your living room.

    I've restored 2 more chairs in the last couple month and this time I tried both bold and subtle prints. The red was just a coincidence and wasn't intentional. They were a pair of chairs but I gave them both different fabric so they can be accent chairs.

    How hard is it to reupholster chairs such as this? We bought one a few years back and I really would love to give it some new life but I have never attempted to recover anything more complicated than a rectangular cushion and back for our lawn swing...

    When I was in my 20's, I reupholstered two chairs. I bought cheap fabric because I never reuhholstered before and thought they might not turn out. They turned out great but wore out right away with 5 kids. But even then, it took so much strength to pull

    Very nice re-dos. I like the 2 graphic prints better than the "words" chair but am very impressed with your style all the way around.

    Gorgeous Job Yamini! I certainly appreciate the work involved as I just finished a cane back barrel chair which was my step #2 after just plain chair seats! Have you taken any upholstery lessons before tackling this degree of difficulty?
