Thank you all so much for your advise on reupholstering my Bergere style chair. I have decided to have someone that knows what they are doing make the cushions and I will tackle the rest. Some of you suggested taking a class and I have found one in my area. It starts in February and runs for three months. I am planning on signing up but I don't want to wait until April for a finished chair. I am sure I will come up with another project to work on by then.
I am in the process of redecorating our living room. So far we have painted the chocolate brown walls left from the previous owner and removed the valances. Here are my plans for this room:
Upholster Bergere chair
Add window treatments
Love seat to shop
Two gold chairs to DIL
End tables to shop
Buy white slip covered sofa
Here are the things that are staying in the room:
Antique French armoire
Two French style stools
Design Dilemma Part II
Choice #1 White fabric to match the sofa. Possibly Linen and throw pillows with red?
Choice #2 Red and white buffalo check
Maybe even combining the red check + toile like this chair.
I don't remember where I got this picture but I loved the chair. If it is yours please let me know and I will make sure to credit you.
I am also open to any suggestions on other fabric choices. Keep in mind the sofa I plan on buying will be slip covered in white and this room sits directly across from our dining room. I know you have seen the dining room a million times but here is a reminder of the fabric, drapes and rug color.
I know there are some great Design Divas out there and I need your help!
Any suggestions or advice?
Thanks so much.
I will be partying at the following blogs.
