Hello! I am back from a crazy stressful month in Salt Lake and I am glad to be home. I miss everyone so bad though, apparently you cant have the best of both worlds. But being home gave me some time to finish this chair. I bought the fabric at Home Fabrics in Sandy (Fah-reakin amazing!) it was $5.99 a yard. I died right when I saw it. It goes perfectly in my living room……which you guys have no clue what it looks like because the dog ate my camera cord. But here it a little preview. So here is what I did, I primed with Kilz and painted 2 coats of Krylon Classic Grey which in my opinion is the PERFECT Grey. I unpicked all of the stitching on the cushions and basically used them as a pattern and reconstructed it the same way I took it apart. Turned out pretty good don’t you think?

I couldn’t find the type of buttons that I needed, the ones that the chair came with kind iof looked like a dumbbell. So I spray painted them black. It actually turned out really cute they look like black velvet. The buttons are kind of camouflaged so this is a close up.
