Most of my friends and family now know I have begun to tackle upholstery. I won't add it to my list of things to do for clients but I love doing it for myself, friends and family. This wingback chair was in my hubbys office for eons....like 30 years. When the office closed all the furniture was donated to a local humane society. I was able to snag this chair and recover it. Not an easy job as I bought a close-out fabric that I didn't realize was a half drop repeat. It turned out great but soooooooooooooo much work. Tearing it down was the hardest but when I did I found a solid wood frame. I picked up a small foot stool from a thrift store for $7 and covered it to match. It now sits in my hubbys man cave.
