circa 2004 (there are so many tragic elements to this picture)
And finally, at long last, I have had the darned thing recovered. It’s asinine that I spent just under 30% of my life fretting over picking a fabric. For a chair. And ended up with WHITE. Without further ado, let me present to you the chair in all of her newfound beauty. She’s a looker…
Here are the details:
- The body fabric is Tonga Snow Matelasse by Waverly. Once I finally picked the fabric it was like the world was working against me to lay my hands on seven yards of it. After a crazy hunt all over the city of Atlanta and the world wide web, I lucked out on ebay – with free shipping and no tax to boot.
- I traded nail heads for double welting, done in extra yardage ordered from Horchow to match my Essex bedspread. The bolster pillow is from the same collection in Flax.
- Trading the channeled back for a smooth back made a world of difference. The piece de resistance would be my custom monogram from Savannah’s Number Four Eleven (store / blog). One word – swoon.
- And, while I adore a good DIY project, I brought in the professionals for this makeover.
Now, I've finally picked a color for the bedroom and once painted it will be well on it's way to completion!
