Vintage Royal Blue and White Tufted Chair

 OMG I made it to day 7! I have to tell you that I have commitment issues, and I rarely do anything on a regular basis except stalk Facebook. Don't judge! I was worried that I wouldn't be able to bust out 7 days in a row of blog posts, much less 7 days that actually had decent content! Anyway now that pat on the back is over, here is the 7th and final chair of September's 7 Days of Seating! The pièce de résistance! The chair even looks kind of French!

I am crazy excited about this chair. I've always wanted to do a type of upholstery project that involved more than just stapling new fabric onto a seat cushion. However, I just kept hording collecting chairs (like this one...and a few others!) and kept being too scared to do anything with them! I will say that I didn't reupholster this chair. I'm still way too scared to do that! Maybe scared isn't the word...I think lazy works better! :)
Update: Find out how I dyed this chair here!

In about a week or more I'll do a tutorial on how I changed the color of the fabric. Let me tell you, it was ridiculously easy and fast! As in, I can't wait to do it again! I have a little bit more testing I want to do on the piece's durability before I do a full how to, and if it turns out that it sucks...I'll let y'all know!

For the time being, here's some rich blue eye candy for you. Mmmm....isn't that a gorgeous peacock blue?

This concludes September's 7 Days of Seating. Thanks for sticking it out with me...maybe I'll do it again next year! :)

P.S. I was planning on keeping this chair for myself, but then I thought the color came out too dark for my room....but now I'm not so sure. I still love it you think it blends enough with my DECOR - or should I sell it?

  1. What a great chair - the caning is perfect in white and the blue velvet looks yummy! Great job!

    1. Thank you! I was so worried about painting the cane without removing the fabric on the chair!
