Before and After: My Colourful Wingback Chair


decor interior
A bit later than originally scheduled, I finally received my thrift ed wing back chair that I originally showed you during the ORC from the upholstery shop. I snapped these pics this morning.  I’m sure you’re not surprised that I went bold, but I surprised myself by going pink. Apparently I still have it in my system even though the kitchen got a good dosage. I’ve always wanted to experiment with the “two fabric look” and I got a chance to do so with this chair. I went with stripes on the outside and the solid pink and I just love it! The legs are chipped but I have no intention of refinishing(at least any time soon). I love the straight line of the base/legs because it/they add a modern flair.

  13. Stacey you really hit the mark on this chair! I love the fabric combo and I've always loved using different fabrics on a piece. You've created a great pop of color for your room. It's amazing.

    and looking back through your posts and I'm in love with your office makeover. It should be in a magazine!! Everything about it is too too incredible!!

    Blessings, Edie Marie

  14. Gorgeous!!!!!! Love the stripes you added to for the backing! Quick question? If you don't mind, how much did it cost you for upholstery job? I have a pair of chairs I really want re-upholstered so I want to have an idea how much it would cost me. Thanks dear! Enjoy!
