One post mentioned 11 yds of fabric...the other mentioned 5 yds. Of course, because I'm cheap and all, I bought 5 yds and another half yard for a coordinating pillow. Then, I ran to the remnant bin and grabbed up two more yds of green fabric. Love the remnant bin at Jo-Ann's...half price baby!
I had serious issues regarding the fabric choices for the chair. Here were the options.
I ultimately chose the yellow print. I really liked the navy and white but when I saw this yellow Pottery Barn chair on The Creative Maven's tutorial, I started obsessing over yellow.
Man I wish my house looked like this!
I searched long and hard for this fabric. I found some here and there but was all out of my price range. So I settled with the Jo-Ann's yellow. I'm happy with it. So here is a small picture of all the fabric I came home with, including the remnants.
The gray coordinates perfectly and will look too stinkin' cute as a pillow. I may ad some tufted buttons in covered in the yellow or green fabric for contrast. We will see how much
I would love to post some before pictures, but my phone was going dead so I had to snap the pics on the hubby's phone. When I called today to have him send them over, he informed me that he had deleted them, asking "why would I want pictures of an old chair on my phone?" Um, because I took them for a reason. Really? Not only did I want to post them, I needed them to help me figure out where everything was stapled and where to start reupholstering my "onion". Gah. Men.
Fortunately, I am out of school tonight, tomorrow, the whole weekend, and Monday! Woo-freakin'-hoo! And the weather is beeeautiful! Hopefully I will have that chair finished and ready to enjoy by Monday night!
