The truth be told, I love this chair. It's solid, it's heavy, it's well made, it's actually comfortable, and it's got a great shape. The problem is the fabric on it is horrible.
|See the green chair draped with a throw? That's my chair.|
|Se the black chair with the throw tossed over it and a pillow? That my chair.|
Here's a close up of it. I painted the wood white to highlight the shape a little more and give it a little interest. I need to sand it off and do it over, because it's not a very good paint job. But do you see what great lines this chair has? I love the detail on the back. It just has a gorgeous shape.
Well, this weekend I did something I had been thinking about doing. I stenciled it, and now I can't stop looking at it. Even though it still needs to be upholstered, I'm really happy with it.
At first I was going to do the small stencil all over, but once I finished the back, I knew that would be too much. So I pulled out the larger matching stencil, and had the arms and seat finished in no time.
Now, just because I like to have pillows on chairs, I have added a pillow to it. The brown pillow helps balance it with the rest of the room. Our sofa is black leather, and Jim's recliner has a brown slipcover on it.
So...what do you think? Do you think it will pass until I can get it upholstered?
