A Sneak Peek: Inanimate Love

Is it possible to be in love with an inanimate object?  The minute I put the fabric on this chair, it transformed into the prettiest seat I've ever seen.

She will be finished next Wednesday soon and ready for a new home (tear).....

I just have to finish adding the piping and put on the back

This is how I am picturing her

  1. oh gosh. i'm SO in love with this makeover (and am a huge fan of that fabric as you know).

    Yes, I agree to a fabric support group lol.

  2. Oh, I so get the "(tear)". I have chairs that I have to part with and I feel like they are being torn from me, ouch! LOVE that chair you're working on, it looks great.
    I am slowly getting there with the staples. Thanks for asking. They are very long staples and they are covered in thick glue from the braid. Also there is a lot of "show wood" which I am being very careful not to damage.The image in my mind of the finished product is what keeps me going on most of my projects, I'm sure you know what I mean!

  3. Ohhhh la la! She turned out beautifully! I don't know how you part from your beautiful pieces. Love love love the Rubie Green East Village---the perfect choice.
