A long time coming

I have had this chair now for about 6 months, in many different stages of her makeover. I finally finished her up, after weeks of her staring at me and taunting me. I showed her.

This is how she started. The pictures don't do the fabric justice on how gross it truly was.

She then sat like this for a while. My creative Dad had the idea to take the back from the ladder back chair, that my large bootie broke, and use it to fill in the center of the frame.

So she sat in this state for a few more months.

And finally!

I re-upholsterd the seat with a painters tarp that I painted with this great french logo which can be found here,

Hope you enjoyed. Have a wonderful day.
