Remember our bergere chair that I found on Craigslist for $20 and reupholstered with curtains?
Well, like everything else in our apartment, I felt like it was time for a change. When we were packing up our apartment during our move I laid this left over fabric from a skirt I made last year onto the chair and had an epiphany.
I loved the way it looked next to our new paint and lace curtains. This fabric isn’t something you would normally upholster with. It’s a silky semi-strechy apparel fabric, but who cares? This chair is rarely used and more for decorative purposes so I don’t care. It’s cute!
I ripped the old fabric and upholstered it just like I did here. Instead of nailheads I decided to finish it with double welt cording. I took these really crappy iPhone pics for you:
Now it looks like this!
