Old Chair...New Look

I love this chair because it has that added touch that makes it special. This one was commercially made but it got me thinking about how easy it would be to create an interesting back on a similar piece.

Do you have embroidered samplers that you or a relative made in years past? Wouldn't that look cool? Too big? Let them go off the edges. Too small? Sew a border of fabric around it.

How about an old quilt piece? Or just a great fabric with lots of personality on the back and something solid on the seat.

If the chair frame is past the pretty stage then paint it with a great color that you don't often use.

It is all about making the piece uniquely you.
