Chair Affair

This chair is my latest and greatest garage sale find. I’m planning on painting it white and reupholstering it. There are some kinks in that plan though. Kink No.1- I’ve never reupholstered anything before, which is why I picked something easy like a chair…except for all those wretched buttons on the back cushion. Kink No.2 -While perusing Etsy for upholstery fabric, I found so many wonderful options I’m not sure which is right for the chair.

These are my fabric options. I chose bold and bright, geometric, and classic style prints but I’m in love with them all — now I just have to decide which one will make the cut (literally). Which one is your favorite??

No.1, 2, 4  Skinny laminx No. 5 Tuft Love Fabric No. 3, 6  Renees’s Fabrics

    Oh that chair is amazing! I say go for the chevrons (#5), that is some beautiful fabric.

    Awesome chair, I have always loved wood + fabric. These fabrics are great, my favorites are #2 and #6! But you cannot go wrong with any of them, they all are your perfect style ;)

    My vote is for either #3 or #6! Great chair, by the way! I like the pretty, bright blue of #3 & the pattern on #6 is pretty awesome, too!

      I knew someone would ask me about the chair sooner or later. I’ve been slacking and haven’t decided on a fabric, it’s a toss between no.1 and no.3. So far, I painted the chair white and it’s looking really nice. This weekend my plan is to finally order the fabric :)
