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.


  1. Wow! you totally gave those boring old chairs new life. Now they're amazing and would look wonderful anywhere!


  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Beautiful chairs!
