I love old chairs, and have brought many home in my time. I cannot walk past a good old chair wihtout seeing it painted and dressed in new fabric. This chair was a gift for TH, who is very girly and loves pink. When I found it, it was covered in what looked like old curtains form the 60's. I painted it, and then had it re-upholstered in a lovely Italian paisley from Robert Allen. I did a double row of striped piping and also put the stripe on the back of the chair. The original chair cost me $20.00. Vintage Chic.
