French lovelies

Are you sitting down?  I'm finally going to reveal the chairs I've been posting about.  I know that in blog land we just like a quick before and after.  But let's be realistic people, it takes time to do projects (especially when they sit for 2 weeks).  So, let me refresh your memory. 

Before:



After:

They look so fresh and fit soooo much better.  Don't you think?  I think this might be one of the best upholstery jobs yet out of a total of 5 chairs and 1 settee.  I even tried to mimic all of the seams that the previous upholsterer had done.  I love my double welting foot.  The double welting just finishes it off perfectly.  I don't even think that the fabric looks like drop cloths.    It took forever to find just the right color of drop cloths, more taupe than oatmeal. 



So, there you have it.  My french lovelies are done!!!
