before & after
I hope our little teaser didn’t make you think we actually reupholstered that chair ourselves because we certainly didn’t. We did scavenge it from the Deseret Industries ourselves. But all the real work was done by John Hart & his dad at Rocky Comfort in Logan, who we enthusiastically recommend, btw. What a transformation!
We had them change the oh-so-80s ruffle to a more modern box pleat. And boy are we so in love with this chair now! (I think the husbands in the shop like having a soft seat to hang out in as well.) It took about 3 yards of Lovesme Lovesmenot in Leaf from Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush home dec collection. Free Spirit, who makes AMH’s fabrics, does such a good job with their home dec weight stuff. They use soft heavyweight sateen that would be pretty awesome for a sturdy bag but isn’t so heavy or rough that you couldn’t just put it in a quilt. But we’re having visions of EVERYTHING recovered in fabric now that we’ve got a good upholsterer. Watch out!
