It’s Earth Day! I set aside the patterns I’m working on to recover a chair today. It’s been sitting in my basement for almost a year. I picked it up at a rummage sale last fall for $6. It has beautiful workmanship — just needed a good wash and a new pad and fabric for the seat.
Love the curved wood!
And those curved legs!
For now I just gave the wood a good wash in Murphy’s Oil soap and water — perhaps one day I’ll give the wood a proper make-over, but for now, I think it’s still beautiful.
The fabric I choose was a bright fun orange mini houndstooth. I used just a fat quarter of fabric so I didn’t add much to the cost of the chair. If you don’t know how to recover a chair, here’s a great tutorial (wink, wink).
Hope you have a great Earth Day!
