It’s Makeover Monday! Today I’m showing you the first among several upholstery projects I’ve been working on… an Eastlake Chair with a floral fabric makeover… no paint used! Are you shocked?? 😉
I’ve been crushing hard on florals lately. Anyone else feel me?
I hit up Joann’s last week and grabbed a few different floral fabrics, ready give these chairs a new life. This particular fabric is my favorite:
Sometimes a chair doesn’t need to be painted, ya know?
This was my first time sewing double welting AND I sewed them on the bias (fist pump)!
Here is the before:
The before isn’t terrible, but I didn’t like the weird shimmery swirls in the fabric, plus it was a little dirty.
Now, this? This, is my better, friends. Florals are trending big-time right now. And I think this color palette is the perfect punch of color, but still having those neutrals that are so easy to coordinate with: gray and beige. The fabric is HGTV Garden Odyssey Fog and is not cheap.
But sometimes a great fabric update is almost as dramatic is a painted update, don’t you think?
A pair of these chairs (same fabric) will be heading to St Louis Vintage Market Days in a few weeks!
