Welcome to my submission for the Fab Furniture Flippin contest for March themed "Mix & Match" sponsored by Fairfield World. Fairfeild is a manufacturer of a variety of craft/sewing/upholstery items. This will add a real spin to the usually painted furniture challenge. After much thought, I finally decided upon recreating an upholstered chair.
this balloon back antique chair was the one of choice
and the frame needs a reglue back to sturdy shape and be scrubbed well
a couple coats of paint and a couple of poly and it was ready to get a new seat
or cream satin? no it will show glue thru, double welting is the winner
new welting, I went with 2 1/2" wide, sewed all together in a long strip and created my new trim (thanks to Christy and her blog for the welt tutorial)
and the other direction (salvage edge down) would have been better but I wanted to leave the excess at the chair back so choose to put it up
what do you think of this?
