Finally, a chair worthy of a queen!

Have you ever had that project that hung over your head?  Maybe for like say 3 or 4 years?  Okay, maybe some of you have not mastered the art of procrastination like I have.  This is the reason for my procrastination:

I posted about this beauty here.  She doesn't look bad until I started to undress her.  Her bone structure looked great but as with age comes some problems.  I am sure you gals don't know a thing about that (wink, wink).  The fabric just shredded apart.  The horse hair was so full of dust.  It wasn't until I realized there was like a zillion tack and staple holes, from who knows how many upholstery jobs, that the procrastination started to set in.  I got this beauty in 2011.  It was stripped down and left in the garage, I am ashamed to say, until this winter.  My husband over time removed all the tacks and staples.  He said he found it relaxing, crazy right?!

This chair was a great storage area in the garage over the years.  But much like the hoarders on TV, my husband forced me to take action.  He reclaimed his garage and plopped the chair down in our entryway.  So, now that the forced action was clearly being aimed at me, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work.  I won't really bore you with the details just give you lots of pictures.  Are you ready to see the transformation?!

She turned out amazing.  Surprisingly, this project went super quick.  The hardest part was of course sewing the cushion.  I always seem to choose chairs that have curves.  Must be because I am use to my curves (teehee).  I cannot believe that I actually waited years to transform this beauty.  If you drop by unannounced, you may find me dressed like a queen sitting on my new throne.  Goodness what will the neighbors think ;)

  1. It's beautiful! I have projects that have been lingering for years, so sad but so true.

  2. So pretty! I love the Queen's curves! I need that chair! I dubbed myself Queen on my 50th birthday so of course now I collect anything having to do with Queens!


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
