Ain´t it pretty, this upholstered Louis armchair with the nailhead trim?
This chair I bought when I was 18 for my first apartment and fabric at a market back in Amsterdam.
I have no idea where this goes, for now I will leave it it my office untill I find the perfect place for it.
Now rember my first upholstery project I did about a black wing back chair with white piping?
read about it here
When I bought that chair at the thriftshop, my mother in law found it silly and dirty, she
doesn´t understand that with upholstering you make it ´´new´´ again.
My mother in law throws away furniture, and she never ever had entered a thriftshop in her life.
When I got the wingbackchair delivered to my office, she changed opinion and told me she
wanted to have that chair for herself, so it went to her house.
I have found, YES FOUND 2 beautifull, heavy and superior quality armchairs a few weeks ago
on the street near my house!
(again, don´t have before pictures, the fabric was worn only)
and got them reupholstered in black with white piping again.
I did liked that look.
Now these stay in my office for when I have visitors.
Those legs are so detailed, they look like lion paws.
The upholsterer was so sweet to make me 2 matching pillows as a gift.
Ok this is not such a good picture, but I wanted to show you the height of my office, do you
see the curtain behind the chairs? Behind the curtain is where I keep stock and other stuff that I don´t want to see all the time. This curtain is another DIY project made on the sewing machine by my mother and my father
hang up the rod. The fabric was purchased at IKEA and it´s Gunvor.
I did all the chairs at one and got a discount, but even so my DIY budget decreased, now I have to
go get back to work, but will have a smile on my face seeing these pretty chairs.
