Next up: The Pink Chair

Now that I have two re-upholstered chairs under my belt - and I think they turned out ok - I'm turning to my next project. It's a big one. I'm a little scared.

It's the pink chair.

Yikes! I'll really be testing myself on this one, and I 've been telling myself it's ok to make mistakes on a $35 junk shop chair. But I'm scared, because I really like this chair. I even like the pink. But if you look carefully, it's dirty and stained, and has some tears.

Once upon a time I thought I would just spend $700 (plus fabric) getting it professionally done, but let's be honest: that's never going to happen. So, I'm going to do it. Eeek! I'm scared.

We decided to stick with velvet, and we've narrowed it down to two colors. Both from West Elm's fabric by the yard Performance Velvet:

Performance Velvet: Lagoon Blue

Performance Velvet: Ink Blue

What do you think? Which do you prefer?

Sooooo, wish me luck on this. And I will keep you updated.


  1. That is one lovely chair!! I love the ink blue...I think it will look so rich on this chair (I also like the pink...but if it's dirty then so be it!). Good luck!!

  2. I love that chair, and I even like the pink - it's too bad the current upholstery can't be saved.
    I like the Ink blue - good luck!
