I was lucky enough to come across these chairs at my local Goodwill. Aren’t they gorgeous?
The cane was in great shape. The frames are strong and sturdy, but they were on rollers for some reason.
They just need a tiny bit of work.
First I removed the bottom cushions. These were the only cushions I wanted to recover. I didn’t bother with the loose back pillows as I want to use some accent pillows when they’re done.
Again start with your project upside down when painting those hard to reach spots. Give a good two coats of spray KILZ primer, sanding in between coats. Then a coat of a light cream paint to finish it off.
I didn’t glaze or distress the chairs. I liked the fresh coat of cream paint the way it was.
Now I have to show you this FABULOUS fabric I found. Heavy, luxurious, beautiful cream and black fabric.
I’m totally in love with this fabric.
Since I didn’t recover these seats myself, but had someone I know do them professionally for me, I have no instructions for this part. I didn’t trust myself with the piping and I wanted the edges nice, square and crisp.
Here is one of the chairs cushions finished.
And one of the chairs…(to tell you the truth I don’t have room for these lovelies unfortunately so I’ll just show one…. you get the gist)
That’s it for now.
Thanks for reading
