Up until recently, my desk chair was of the purely practical variety. It was just your average, office-type desk chair - I think I bought it at Pottery Barn years ago and it was perfectly fine. But it wasn't particularly pretty. Now, given that "pretty" is the basic requirement of most items that make their way into my home, it's rather surprising that it lasted around here as long as it did. I had been looking for a replacement and when I found this shabby, french style armchair, I knew it would be perfect. It came upholstered in a nice beige linen, but I wanted something slightly more colorful and special.
So, I decided to have it reupholstered in this gorgeous vintage fabric from the 1940's.
I had been saving it for years, as I usually just stash away my vintage fabrics for future projects that never seem to materialize. Soooooo, since one of my New Year's resolutions is to actually start using more of my stuff - it seemed like the perfect choice. Now I have a pretty new desk chair...and instead of my lovely fabric just hiding away, I get to enjoy it every day!
