Queen Anne Style Chairs Redone

on November 1, 2014

Hello friends. I have been away too long. About a month ago I travelled to Atlanta on business and the day I got back I woke up with THE worst migraine I’ve ever had. For 3 weeks I battled some pretty terrible headaches. I have missed all of you!

I posted a picture of these chairs a while back. Here’s what they looked like when I got them off someone on Kijiji.

For the button tufting, I just recovered the existing fabric buttons. This was surprisingly easy to do! Here’s one finished:

When I had all the original fabric off, I taped off parts of the chair and restained the wood.

The back covering is handsewn just as it was originally.

I made some pillows from left over fabric. These will go on the sofa once I’ve recovered it. For the buttons, I had some fabric buttons from a dress I wore to my college graduation! I simply spray painted them gold.

???????????????????????????????

Mr. Restyle and I are working on a lot of things so there are a lot of posts coming. I’ve also done a lot of shopping and will have plenty of thrifted fall and winter looks along with some sewing projects.
