If you looked in my garage right now you would think I have a chair fetish. I have the six chairs that are going to go with my dining room table when its done (still working on it!), plus two additional sets of six chairs, and two occasional chairs. Hmmmm.... maybe I do have a chair fetish! Anyway,I found this chair on -- where else -- Craigslist. I bought it for just $10!
I love the fan detail and the scrolls on the arms.
It was actually in good shape, but I just wanted to update it a bit. So I painted it black.
I recovered the seat first in a light cotton, then I covered that with burlap. It still looked a bit blah to me though, so I did a couple of stencils on it.
This was the first time I've tried stencils on fabric, but it was quite easy.
I have a matching chair, so now I'm trying to decide if I should do a matching one, or sell this one as a one-of-a-kind. What do you think?
