So, I found this old dud....
You can read all about its transformation here.
However, I had a small problem. I had covered the back of the backrest and in order to reattach the backrest, I had to put screws under the fabric. Uh-oh.
So, I had to reevaluate and I decided to cut open the back and cover the backrest with a gold fabric I had leftover from another piece of furniture.
It looked great, except for the scruffy edges. What to do? Upholstery tacks to the rescue.
It was not perfect for my first time, but it looks nice and to be honest, it adds a lot more interest to the chair than before I cut through the back and added the gold fabric! My confidence level is higher after having done this project. : ) The hardest part was folding down the fabric, spacing the tacks and not hammering my fingers in the process.
Here is the back all finished out....
And finally, the chair in the office!
