BEFORE: Molded Chair

My penchant for salvaging furniture is hereditary. My mother passed it down to me. So, her garage is the best place to plunder! Found four of these molded chairs at her place and stole one. I figured it could be my prototype and I could go get the rest later. Plus, I had to move fast…she could have caught me any second. It reminds me of the molded chairs that Charles and Ray Eames created.

The Fancy Chair is finally fancy.  The primer and paint went on fine. I chose a high gloss because I love shiny things. I dug through my fabric box and could not find anything appropriate for the thin lines of this piece until I remembered that I had some quarter flats that I picked up at Joann Fabrics just because they were cute. The swirly sewing machine motif looks great with the delicate chair. After stapling the fabric over the foam cushion I lined the edges with a black and white center stitch ribbon. Voila!
