a month ago we dropped off two chairs and 9 yards of fabric with mr. duck. really, that's his name. he has an upholstery shop in north portland and a friend recommended him to me. he does amazing work! he will tell you so himself. today we picked up our chairs and as promised, they are perfect.
chair one: this was something i had tried to recover myself. and it looked okay at best. but when we decided to redo mackenzie's big girl room, it was the perfect time for a do-over on the chair too.
chair two: this was my grandfather's chair. originally it was beautiful. however, my grandmother decided to redecorate in the mid 90's and had this classic chair redone in a very ..err...well, ugly print. so when i got this chair the first thing i did was start looking for fabrics. i think it turned out pretty darn good.
