How many times have you said, “Why, oh WHY did I ever start this project”. Of course, it was in the most pathetic and whiny voice…
Here is the “before”… sorry I need a better picture with the old upholstery on it!
I have two other chairs painted and ready to be reupholstered but I need to get a compressor staple gun, as the electric one, actually two, I bought for the project are not powerful enough to sink the nails completely into the hardwood.
I am so pleased with how the paint color and the fabric work together.

The fabric is called Swirl from Calico Corners. It was love at first sight!
The linen fabric is an odd color. Sorta light beige/gold with a very faint olive undertone. The nappy swirls match the color of my natural linen head chairs perfectly.
It was just so unusual and so beautiful to me. Totally my cup of tea!
I think this nice braided jute trim is fine. It does not remind me of anything the least bit personal and I am fine having dinner with it!
