Traci’s chair had been handed down to her. It had a strong frame and was built beautifully. I was up to the challenge of restoring her heirloom piece. Here it is before on the left. We loved the original colors of the silk on the seat.
When, I came across this gorgeous Sunbrella silk at right, I knew that we had found our new fabric! We both agreed on it immediately. To add comfort, I added an extra sheet of polyester batting to the existing cushion, being mindful not to make it too fluffy! Here you can see the beauty of the wood from the side.
That is one chic restoration piece, does anyone know what period it is from exactly? My guess is a Thomas Sheraton piece.
Looks like it is going to be another full day. Pop in later in the week for a DIY project and inspiration!
