I love to paint furniture. I get a vision of what a piece can be and I love watching the transformation. Don't feel quite the same about upholstery. I have a vision for what it can be, but I don't usually enjoy the process. Still, there's satisfaction in seeing a piece reborn.
I acquired two chairs at an auction. They were dated brown wood and the seat and back were covered in black vinyl. But they were sturdy and super cheap and no one was bidding on them. So I bought them. I figured I'd paint them and recover the seats. Imagine my surprise when I took off the vinyl covering the back to discover this lattice! Score!
So I covered the seats in vintage grain sacks. I'm in love!
I saw this chair on Craig's List and knew a drop cloth would be perfect for the cushion. It had already been painted white but the seat was an ugly green velvet.
I added the ruffle and really like the way it turned out. This ruffle was no-sew! I used the hem of the drop cloth! Maybe I should consider upholstery more often!
