**3/25/11 – Update: See the finished chair here.**
So, I knew I needed a wingback chair for the master bedroom. I recently blogged about how expensive it could get to find the right chair, as I want not just a wingback chair, but it needs to be a nice teal color according to the story board I created. That post was about the idea of painting fabric after learning that buying a new chair was at least $1000 and having an old one re-upholstered was at least $500 total.
Off to Craigslist I went… daily searching for the right wingback chair. After a week or two, I found a Schweiger chair that was owned by a lady’s grandmother, yet never used as it sat in the formal living room. And, at a great price point.
However, it was located almost an hour and a half away. I didn’t have that sort of time in my schedule. So, I contacted the seller and she was nice enough to meet me half way!
I saw the chair and fell in love. It is in perfect condition.
It has such nice lines. The legs have cross bars which makes it more charming.
Up close, you can see the paint chip sitting in the seat of the chair. I hope to paint it this color… starting with one pillow to see how it goes.
I just love her… she’s so pretty. And, in that color, she should look amazing. I hope this painting thing works.
