Remember when I was asking for advise for this wing back chair that I used to hate?
I mean look at her... she is UGLY! However, this is the last time that you see her like that!
Well it's time for the big reveal...
Are you ready?....
What do ya think? I'd say absolutely fabulous!
And as you can see I finally went for the fabric with the cow texture, as black
would not probably match as well. I have to admit I followed the advise of the guru of interior
designers Eva from Rdeco! That woman is capable of solving interiors dilemmas with her eyes closed!
Now I guess you're all wondering if this project was made by me. Well... not exactly!
In the beginning it started out as one of my projects, so I read some excellent tutorials like this one to
guide me. So first I had to take her to a neighbor's garage because it was going to be the dirtiest and
most painful job ever! I started by pulling out the staples with the use of a screwdriver and needlenose
pliers. Man there were so many! And this is how far I went!
It took so many hours unstapling the old fabric that it drove me crazy and I was only half the way! Taking into account that I have a house, two kids, a husband and one dog waiting for me to feed / clean / take care of / them, the only spare time I had for this one was only 1-2 hours at night when kids were asleep.
I reconned that it would take me months to finish! So I decided to leave it to the hands of a pro.
And there you have a professional outcome.
I tried this rug that I had in my basement, but I think the white flokati looked better.
Next up is to get rid off this wall clock. Any suggestions on what to hang on this wall?
Silky wanted to be the first one to try out the new chair! :)
Another before and after shot side by side:
It only cost me 190 Euros (i.e. $370) with the fabric included and the transportation
from and back to my home.
So what do you think of my new-old cow wing back chair?
