another chair done!

I call this one the figure eight chair.  Yeah, I'm a math girl.  :)
I found this lovely chair at Goodwill.  And the "fabric" I used to reupholster the seat also came from Goodwill.  I say "fabric" because this piece of fabric already had a purpose.  I bet you'll never guess what it actually is.  Okay, maybe you will.  I'll give you a hint...

Yup.  It's a curtain.  Target donates a LOT of stuff to the Goodwill near my house and I scored this brand new curtain (still in the original package) for cheap.  I loved the silky feel of the fabric and knew it would look beautiful on a chair.

Anyway, this beauty got new foam and batting before being reupholstered in this beautiful silk like blue fabric. 

I love how the design in the fabric accents the curves in the back of the chair.

Like what you see?  This chair can be found at Piccadilly Prairie in SW Minneapolis. (Update: Sorry lovely readers, this chair has already sold)

  3. Guess what?! This was the most viewed link last week over on Kammy's Korner Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday!!! Feel free to grab a featured button if you'd like. AND....SO LUCKY - a brand new curtain for the fabric?? I love using curtains and table clothes for that stuff too - but I'm usually not lucky enough to find brand new stuff at our Goodwill. This is SO BEAUTIFUL!! Way to repurpose.

    1. Thank you! Thank you!! I feel so very honored. :)
