All things go...with Indigo

Wow, it has once again been a long time since I updated the blog. The good news is that I actually have been very busy working on all sorts of fun projects around the house, so I have much to share!

The first thing I want to share is this set of 4 dining chairs I helped a friend reupholster. These chairs are family heirlooms, passed down from her grandmother. The new pattern was striking and the color indigo made the design on the fabric really pop!

the after...wonderful indigo colored print

I forgot to take pictures of the before. As you can imagine, the fabric was worn and outdated, and the cushions had nearly disintegrated to nothing! We replaced the cushions with new 1" thick, medium density seat foam, wrapped the cushions in a new1/2  layer of Dacron, then covered with Waverly Parterre Porcelain Fabric.

Removing the old fabric....the best "before" picture that shows the old fabric.

Much more comfy to sit on now!!

I adore the shape of these cute chairs. The curve of the back is so lady-like and refined, and the new fabric brings them up to date in a modern graphic print with a nod to a classic pattern from colonial times. I know they will love their new home in Chicago!!
