Silk and Glue = New Chair

As I waited for the air conditioner man today, I decided to finish up a
project that was started last week. Yes, our brand new air conditioning
system is dead again!
Well anyway, that to will be fixed. On with the project. I had bought this chair a few yardsales back, and decided. Wow, paint it white, re-cover it, and it will look great in my daughter's bedroom. She has a Eastlake bed, and an Eastlake
chair would be perfect! Not exactly, I painted the chair white. Added
webbing,Did I mention I never did this before??? And then proceeded to
re-cover it with new batting, and silk material. Oh, so pretty! But,
before I COULD ADD THE TRIM, I decided that the white paint did not
work! So, I spent all day stripping the chair back to it's original
look. Hot glued the trim on, burned every finger in the process! I
think it came out pretty good for my first try. You may see
all my flaws, but that's OK, 'cause the next chair will be perfect.

Your chair turned out gorgeous, and I see no flaws.

My husband has grounded me from buying chairs, I always find cute chairs and make him recover them, he isn't happy with that idea LOL
