A Reading Chair

Or at least that's what I'd like to call it. It should be called...

The you wish you had time to read chair!


The what the heck did I get myself into chair!

Regardless, Brad's uncle gave me this chair and I love it. Clearly it needs alittle TLC. I plan to reupholster it with the help of my mother in a super cute fabric. We've done little projects like this before, so hopefully it can be done. Seems like it could be alittle more tricky than our other projects.

Don't ya think it's pretty? Anyone have any suggestions on fabric or any helpful tips on reupholstering?? I sure could use some.


  1. I would go for a large graphic print, I love the juxtaposition of that style with the more dainty details in the chair.

    For lots of cool ideas peruse this site: http://www.designspongeonline.com/category/before-and-after
    (though you'll have to look through a lot to find the chairs.)

  2. That's exactly what I was thinking.... A bold graphic print! Great minds think alike :) Starting to get nervous that I won't be able to do it! (gulp)

  3. Let me know how it goes!! And then come help me with my FOUR ugly-as-hell-but-I-love-shape!-chairs. Oh, and you could also get me going on the dresser I stripped 5 years ago and still have not managed to refinish? I'm a great starter!!!
