Ok - the time has come!! It's been over a year now since I snapped up some bargin chairs that really needed a makeover! I've begun sanding and polishing the timber, but for a while now I've been slowly searching for some upholstery fabric that will really bring these babies back to life....
The two chairs are very similar to the one above - maybe just a little shade lighter, but the style is almost identical. I've kept this picture as inspiration for myself and to encourage this project along....
Now I feel like the creative Gods are aligned as I stumbled upon Spoonflower - the most amazing independent fabric store I've come across. It is an ingenious creative hub, whereby anyone (yes, thats right - anyone) can design fabric, and then you can make your design available to the public! Not only that, but Spoonflower take on all the role of printing and sending out the fabric to you and those that purchase it!
But the best bit I Iove is searching through all the amazing fabrics on offer! That and the fact that I can order a swatch and then they will print that fabric on any type of material from quilting cotton, linen blend and even upholstery weighted material.
So - now that I've done some searching here are some of the fabrics I'm about to order to see if they will be suitable for the job of adorning my thrifted chairs.
What do you think? Which one do you like the best??
