Let Me Share My Chair....

Hello ladies. Welcome to the mansion. Let me share my chair.... Ever have a chair that you would like to use, but the color is just not right? I prepping to move to the new "mansion" in two months, I found myself in this same quandary. The denim rocking chair that now sits in the playroom is going to be put into the craft room in the new mansion. The craft room, in my mind, is taupe, black, and white. Denim would just never do. I go to Hancocks for fabulous fabric to match the craft room. I found the fabric you see on the chair above. Love it.... Then, I had to cover the chair. These are the things I used for the project... First, I made a pattern by putting paper on the sections of the chair and drawing each piece. Then, I cut the pieces out. Waaalaaaa: Pattern. Next, I started to cut the pieces out of the fabric. As each piece was cut, I laid them on the chair where they would be. OK. When all the pieces were cut out, I started sewing them together. After each sewing, I would set the fabric back on the chair to make sure that everything was going well. I saved the back of the chair for last. I decided to make the back into two pieces with a velcro closure. This would allow for easy on and off. And there ya go. This "camo" project took one day. The total cost of the recover was 80.00. Not bad compared to the cost of paying someone to reupholster the chair or buying a new chair. I love my new chair. I can't wait to see it in the craft room. Here are some pics of other revamped chairs from flicker....

Thank you for letting me "share my chair." Have a great day. Laura
