Happy Wednesday everyone!
It’s themed furniture day.
I have a project for you and so do a few of my friends.
Vintage Vanity Chair with Red and White Damask Seat
The theme this month is “Romantic”.
Each blogger interrupted the theme to suit her style.
Really, can you believe this is the same chair?
I love all the curvy details and the padded seat.
I could see potential.
I’m always drawn to this type of vintage vanity chair.
Don’t know what it is about them?
The red and white damask fabric is actually a curtain panel.
I purchased a pair of them at the local Habitat Restore ages ago.
The curtains were a little frayed and worn but damask print happens to be one of my all time favorite prints.
The red is what I would call a lipstick red…..red leaning toward pink!
Do ya’ll know what I mean?
It’s really easy to cover a chair seat….cut the fabric a little larger than the seat……staple the two opposing sides first, pulling the fabric tight….finish the other two sides and corners.
The corners are the hardest.
Usually I can work out the folds in the corners.
It helps if the fabric is on the thin side.
love the red and white
To stage the photo I laid a pretty little nightie over the back.
My take on the romantic theme……white paint…soft girlie fabric…..and curvy furniture.
