Caned barrel chair; upholstery redo. Pics!

nicole__December 29, 2012

I got the chair FREE off CL. Used 1 yard of $6 fabric, a can of .99cent paint, hot glue sticks from Dollar Tree, cotton piping from a 550yd spool($5 thrift store purchase years ago, lifetime supply), free foam from a leather ottoman being thrown out.....Viola!

Wow!
That's a dramatic rebirth!
You did a fabulous job.
I wanna do that with a raspberry, Queen Anne settee, but OMG I'm afraid I'll just screw it up.

Absolutely beautiful job you did!

Great job! I have almost same chairs except front legs are square tapered down & fabric is velour, got them about 40 yrs ago. Still look new. Don't really use them but fill in space nicely. That really compliments the rest of room! You did beautiful job on piping & way you used that eye popping fabric. Enjoy! Jan

Wow, it looks awesome! Your fabric choice was perfect to bring the chair into this century and make it contemporary.

suziq-92....I originally planned to look for a match, but didn't find anything "exact". So I purchased 2 off white leather club /theater chairs and I'll use this as an accent chair. I may make matching throw pillows with the left over fabric tho.....:0)

Great job! It looks like you also replaced the cane (looks like the cat was having fun with that!) but don't see it mentioned?
