Bold and Beautiful Antique Chair Makeover

Pin It


Sometimes it takes some imagination and a lot of faith to see the beauty in a piece of furniture.


I remember this chair (and sofa) when it was in better condition, but it still took some vision to believe it could be beautiful again, or should I say to believe that I could make it beautiful again.


 I reupholstered the matching sofa several years ago, but it was such a big job that I put off reupholstering this piece. I guess I had to forget just how much work it was. It took many hours to get it looking like this! So many staples!!!


I sanded and painted the wood.


A work in progress.


Wow it felt good to get to this point..


I had to wait until I could get to the city to buy the braid to finish it off.


I love, love, love this chair and can't wait to have it placed in our 3 season room with the sofa.



 Look at how the detail of the wood carving stands out now.
