I actually really loved the original upholstery, but it had been totally scratched up (cat maybe?) On the front of the arms.
The other day I was talking with Robin and saying how I wished there was a way that I could just recover that front panel...as I was saying those exact words I stuck my finger in the crack and pulled...lo and behold, it came off !!! So this previously daunting reupholstery job that I had been dreading turned into a 10 minute transformation! I just grabbed some lace fabric that I had lying around along with a staple gun and this is what I came up with...
Ugh!! Sweet holy goodness, I LOVE it!!
Too bad it now has a new home in The Barn:(
Any other vintage crazy chair lovers out there?
