Deconstructed Wing Back Chair in Denim
Oh, what a project it was to take this chair apart and then to put it back together in a style that I loved. It was worth it! If you didn’t catch pt 1 on tearing them apart then you need to go back and view that!
What I started with was dirty and needed a desperate makeover. I got both chairs off of a local for sale site and paid $35.00 for both of them. It took almost 5 hours to tear all the fabric off plus the thousands of staples and nails. Today, was the fun part as I got to put it all back together. Let me know if you would love to see a tutorial because I have the other chair to still complete.
I am absolutely no professional and this is the first time that I have torn a chair apart to re-do it. I used one of my favorite fabrics from Robert Kaufman called Railroad Denim to cover the front part. The sides and the back were covered in a solid denim pattern.
I chose not to paint the chair. I love the way the denim and wood look together and the wood was in great condition. I did wash the wood down and apply a wax to keep it looking nice.
This just might be one of my favorite makeovers that I have ever completed. It was worth the late night and all the thousands of staples that I had to pull. Now, I have to go and finish the second one.
What do you think? Is it a project that you would tackle? I would love to hear what you think.
Since this time, the chair has seen a bit of makeover in lighter color fabrics. Here is how it looks today!
