Do you remember me posting about this lovely little chair I had as a child that needed upholstering?
Well the lovely Kristy from over on 4theloveofwood has kindly been putting some ideas together for me. This is a big challenge for me as I have never done any upholstering before & I want to get it right as this cute little chair has been in my family for a very long time.
One suggestion she had for me was to go for an organic large bold coloured print to jazz up the simple lines. I love the look of these chairs & kirsty was right in saying she had a feeling I would love the yellow! (Oh Kirsty you have me worked out), although I do LOVE it in the red as well. These printed fabrics on a white painted base would be gorgeous although now I am slightly torn since she threw another idea at me that really caught my eye....
....... I also LOVE the idea of the black painted wood with the black & white printed fabric. Oh no..HELP ME people what do you think?
Kirsty also suggested to fill in and upholster the side panels of the chair to give it a whole new look completely. Im toying with this idea if I go with the bold coloured fabrics. hmmmm whats a girl to do? What do you all think I would love your feed back on this.
