Armchair Recovery


I bought a set of four chairs at an auction last fall for $5, and then they sat and sat and sat and sat until I could decide what to do with them. I've only finished one so far, but I think it turned out alright! You can find information on my paint and fabric choices here: http://www.firsthomedreams.com/2012/07/not-quite-50-shades-of-grey.html
Original chair
Nothing fancy, but I wanted a classic, masculine look. A graphic throw pillow would fit in nicely if I had one!
I love the fabric on the back. Although it's sort of hard to tell, it's a herringbone pattern in a whole bunch of different shades of grey.
