|Remember those $30 craigslist chairs I bought recently? My kimono silk arrived a few days ago, and I bought a yard of pretty gold/chartreuse velvet from Fishmans Fabric in Chicago for the seats. Here's the finished product, which I think is a big improvement. They're definitely not perfect, and I made a few mistakes while recovering the back cushions, but I think they look pretty good, considering this was my first try at reupholstering anything...|
Please excuse (as always) all the crap in the background. I was in major cleaning mode when I was redoing the chairs and my apartment was a huge mess.
As usual, the photo quality is crap. But you get the idea.
Seat cushions, before and after.
I moved the chair into the living room, where it's brighter, for this close up of the back. Can you see the subtle geometric pattern in the silk?
One last full-on shot. Look at those cute little pointy legs.
