Linen Chairs...

Sharing of A Custom Order..
Simple Lines-Maple in Color-Worn Fabric..
I first stripped them all down to nothing-taking off seats-pulling off original piping-lightly sanded frame-Then used my Power Sprayer to prime  & paint in a soft calming white.


While they were drying, I recovered the seats-sewed the new double welting in a darker shade of Textured Linen.
Slightly Sanded-Distressed the edges of frame.

While you can't see here- I completely took the backs and bottoms of each chair apart to line the back of each chair-, screwed on the new covered bottoms-did the backs
and added the double welting around whole chair..

Now these out dated chairs have a new neutral look in linen.
