add some style

While we were in Grass Valley cutting down our annual Christmas tree, saw this chair and for me i like the ugliest, most hideous chair that needs the most work, i love the challenge of taking something that many would chalk up to being a lost cause and bringing a new look and giving some style or what i like to think of is love to the piece. This chair is a vintage cane sided chair in a dark brown oak like color with a deep green velvet like material. I sanded-painted it in a heirloom color slightly distressed it to give it that worn antique look and then upholstered it in a blueish satin/taffeta like fabric with a gold scroll pattern running through it.Upholstering the chair is the easist for me, choosing the fabric and texture is what takes me so long..
