Today was a major plus of a day with a giant FREE score off of Craigslist. I have been dying to try my hand at an upholstery project. Although I was a little hesitant to rip one of our chairs apart, I have no fear of waging war on someone else's cast off chair! The real problem here is deciding what fabric I want to reupholster this fabulous Queen Anne wingback beaut in. The current sad state is a very worn mauve (shudder) chenille sort of fabric. I am currently obsessed with Ikat fabrics, but I am not willing to spend the money on an experiment. If I were a reupholstering ninja then perhaps I would splurge a little. I have found a very cute jacquard print that at $6.98 a yard is a do-able option for this experiment. I am estimating 7 yards of fabric for this particular chair as well as some additional batting to give the seat a little extra life. Our living room has been calling out for an arm chair to balance out the sectional we just purchased and this may be it.
