Just In: My Reupholstered Channel Back Chair

My favorite upholsterer just paid me a visit. He finished up & delivered the most adorable chair ever! I sent my ratty vintage 1930's Channel Back Chair to him, this past February. I also sent along some of my gorgeous Barefoot Roses, by Tanya Whelan, fabric. It takes about 3.5 yards to redo a Channel Back. I started redecorating my Atelier (workroom) in 2008. I fell in love with the dreamy Barefoot Roses line, and started collecting fabric pieces here and there. I have had pillows, throws, lamp shades & even a magazine holder made from this beautiful fabric collection. Now, I can add Channel Back Chair to the list. Here are a few pictures of my latest remake of a classic.

Before. Although the raspberry color of this chair was awesome, it was much too tattered to be considered "pretty".

A few "during" pictures.

I just LOVE the raspberry polka dot fabric from the Barefoot Roses fabric collection.

Tah-Dah! Here she is in her new stunning gown of roses! I am thrilled with the remake of this classic chair. The gorgeous white and pink fabric coordinates perfectly with the raspberry polka dots. This will definitely be the rooms focal point! At some point in the future, I will have my workroom completed, and will share pictures of how it all comes together. Well, thanks for stopping by to visit and please know that I appreciate all of your comments! Have a splendid week ~ R.
