I took advantage of a sunny and beautiful 66 degree day to finally get that chair painted for the closet. For $11 I got a solid wood chair with a seat cushion that matches the chairs in the master bedroom. Yay!
I started off by digging out the leftover Damask fabric by Waverly.
Hey - it was an expensive project and I was going to use up as much of that fabric as I could!
Which meant that it had to pieced together, since it was just mainly scraps.
And then I top stitched the seams with a zig zag stitch so the sections would be sturdy. I tried to match the pattern as much as possible. But it has something like a 13 inch repeat!
There is a tiny nub of this fabric left. Wonder what I could do with it, ha ha. Really, I'm getting kinda tired of hauling it out. I've already made a French memo board and decopaged some light switch covers.
I stapled it all around the chair pad. If I stand back a bit, I don't notice the patching as much - I'm hoping Hubby will not find this to be a problem. After all, it's going to live in the closet!
I primed and spray painted it a matte black. Not my best spray paint job for sure...
But I bet Hubby will appreciate a place to park himself and slip off his shoes...
