These little chairs, have become one of my favorite items to make over. The chair usually starts out pretty ugly and gross, but by the time I finish, it's crisp, clean and beautiful. This is my 3rd chair like this and by far my favorite.
Here is the before
As you can see it has some button tufting on the seat and back cushion. I had been wanting to try it out, and this chair was perfect for my first time. Yes I admit, I was a tufting virgin. But I just followed the exact way the old buttons were done and did it exactly the same with new fabric. It was actually pretty easy. If I had to do it from scratch, it would probably not have been.
This was also my first time making the double cording on the back cushion It is the perfect way to cover up all those ugly staples.
