Re-upholstered Flea Market Chair

Remember my $35 flea market chair?
It’s FINALLY re-upholstered it.

I don’t have a true “Before” picture of it, but let’s just say it was previously suffocating under a thick skin of burnt orange velvet that had seen better days.

Here’s the chair naked, and the chair NOW:

And here’s its sexy back:

Max seems to like it :-)

So now the search is on for the PERFECT pillow to put on it.
I like this one from Pottery Barn (in maple):

And this one, also Pottery Barn (in bran):

But, in the meantime, my “new” chair will sit proudly (and pillow-less) by the fireplace…

    How many yards did it take to upholster it? I have a chair just like it and now I’m INSPIRED! 😀

    The find was a steal at $35 and the result is gorgeous, but how much did it cost you to reupholster it?
