Vintage Slipper Chair


My sister-in-law found this great chair at a local thrift store for $22.



I fell in love with the curves and vintage vogue style. The color, not so great.


(Before)


I knew right away that it was going in here...




This was the first time I recovered a chair with a lot of curves so, I wanted to practice first. I used an old curtain panel that I had laying around. It works for now, one day I'll fall in love with a fabric and recover it without feeling guilty.









I used a staple gun to secure the fabric, a hot glue gun to attach the trim and a tack hammer to apply the nail heads. I had leftover trim paint that I used for the legs and back along with a coat of poly.


















It didn't turn out perfect but it was a learning experience that only set me back $32 ($22 for the chair & $10 for the trim). The cost for a professional job would have been $300.




Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.

Stop by The shabby nest , Crazy Domestic and fingerprints on the fridge for Linky parties with a ton of inspiration. Another great place to visit, sawdust and paper scraps is having a "Build-Hers" party with great projects built by girls.
