One more done!!

We are determined to finish all the projects that have been quietly waiting for us in the garage before buying anything else in need of some TLC. We thought that this one was perfect to share on the 25th at Jen's Makeover Open House, but we couldn't wait to show you!! So, Ladies here it is: our first upholstery job...
We started with this vintage, yellowish, distressed (not exactly in a good way) occasional chair found somewhere...(was so long ago, we can't even remember!)

Good lines, dirty seat....

After applying the primer, 3 coats of white spray paint and removing the seat material, this is what we got:

Using the old material as a pattern, we cut burlap, and with a little bit of patience, the ugly chair started to show some chic-ness...

We added a cream trim and bronze upholstery brads...

And finished it with a little back pillow....

Wouldn't be just too adorable in a bedroom?

...or the entryway?...or in a reading nook?...or in the office?...or the bathroom?...
or the guestroom?...or the dressing room?...or the living room?...or...
What can we say...we don't know where this cute chair will end up, but we are happy that we worked on it...

One more project done...YEAH!!
