Welcome to my upholstery shop.
That's right. I finally did it.
You may recall this previous post where I outed my hideous indoor-outdoor-carpet-covered dining room chairs with the hope that I would be inspired enough to take action and recover the darn things already. I even had the vintage fabric. And a newly purchased electric staple gun. What was my problem!?
The problem was this: The longer I looked at the fabric, the less sure I was about it. I liked it but too much brown in it to go on brown wooden chairs, I thought.
Please meet Plan B.
I brought home this vintage barkcloth for another project altogether (scrapped!) but when I casually tossed it across one of the chairs, it became the new vintage chair fabric.
And with the chairs completed, I can now turn my attention to the I'm-over-it white sideboard...

Hope it's warm & dry where you are. Raining sideways here today.
