Sweet Pink Mixture

One my many Chairs I have re-upholstered, I choose to go with shades of pink, for that girl in all of us, but with a Shabby Touch.

The Chair was originally dark wood, with a vanilla satin textured fabric.

With some Lovely Soft White, Distressing & then a mixture of fabrics.

I used pink chenille for the seat cushion bottom-top and for the sides as well,Then a soft sweet pink pin stripe Cotton for the arms, edge front of cushion, a flannel floral for base of frame work and back, and lastly I used a pretty pink check for the piping to accent it all together.

I also love to include matching pillows with all of my chairs, So i used the pink pin striped Cotton on one side and the floral flannel on the opposite side and then added buttons in the pink chenille.
The Cushion is totally removable,

I guess the girl in me always love the pinks, How Darling would this look in a Nursery or a little girls room, Or in a Baby shoppe or shucks even in my room.


  1. You are a genius. I love your garbage find (CD holder turned organizer), what a talent. One day I will stop by your shoppe when I'm in the area.

  2. This is gorgeous. I love a chair with contrasting fabric. You have done a great job.. How did you attach the piping? Did you just hot glue with the seam on the underside? I am in the middle of some chairs and not sure how to do this.

  3. Love it! I wish I could do this!

    p.s. I'm having a Anthropologie giveaway if it interests you! xo

  4. Oh Karryann, your chair makes my heart go pitter patter. You are SO GOOD!!! I bet people come in your store and just go nuts over your furniture. I know I would.


  5. Love it! I I love the transformation and the married fabrics are perfect for this chair! Did you by chance see my recent post about the french settee I bought? TONS of button tufting! My button tufting never comes out like I plan- how do you get yours to look so good? Anyway, your chair is gorgeous!

  6. Very inspiring! I myself just got 2 wingbacks this past wkend from a garage sale for $20!!! I can't wait until I can share the after pictures. It will be first big reupholster project though... Im a bit nervous I must admit. Do you have any tips???
