Accent Chair: Before and After

November 28, 2012 at 10:44 AM 5 comments

If  you’ve been following my blog for years now, then you may recall this little gold accent chair that I scored at a thrift store back in Dec. of 2010.  In a rather pathetic manner, it remained in the fabric I purchased it in for roughly two years.  It wasn’t a chair that was ever really used so it was very neglected.

Here’s how it was, stained with a rather random picnic-table-esque fabric on it.

The gold chair got to meet up with this Studio Bon fabric that I scored on The Designers Attic about a year a half ago.

It was only a half yard piece and I had been saving it for something special.  I could never figure out what that something special was, until it hit me that it would work for the gold chair.  I sent it off to my upholsterer back in October but I always put client projects before mine.  Finally, yesterday, he had some time to whip up my chair.

I love the fun playful vibe it brings to my kitchen nook. And now I have another little item checked off of my long list of apartment To Do’s.
