The cushion and seat were in decent condition and the fabric was perfect for my bedroom, but the arms really needed to be redone and the wood was really dry and scratched. I still want to get a new piece of foam and recover the cushion, but for now the arms are the worst.
So, out came the drop cloth and some walnut stain and I went to town. First I removed the upholstery from the arms, I have a fabric that will coordinate with the cushion so I am going to use it. There must have been a million (exaggeration) staples in these two little arms.
Major improvement already. I saved the fabric from the arms to use as a pattern. Now to let this dry overnight and then I can recover it.
I found this fabric at JoAnn's and it was the perfect color match to the cushion. I bought 1/4 yard, so only $5.00.
Remember this chair that I use to have here in the master bedroom,
so of course it had to go here, perfect isn't it. See how nice it looks.
The soft aqua makes the bedroom look so much cooler for these really, really hot summer days.
I think the chair compliments the rest of the room, don't you?
