Reupholstering a little chair

I just blogged about this over at Ink & Spindle but had to share it here too because I'm just so happy with the result... but today Dana and I recovered a small child sized armchair that Sass bought for us from the Mill Markets!

Little armchair - before

Little armchair - after

Reupholstering the little armchair - in progress

It was somewhat disgusting work but sooooo worth it! Cuteness in armchair form! It's also nice to give my Little Forest print some love :)

This little piece will be coming along with us to Design:Made:Trade. Of course ;)

I have a chair that needs reupholstering. Shall i drop it round? ;) Or maybe you could give me some tips so i can do it myself.

Your wee chair looks fab!

Oh my, I've just become the owner of child's armchair exactly the same! (mine's covered in pooey brown vinyl though....) I haven't decided on what to cover it with yet but I LOVE what you've done!

As the new, and very grateful, owner of this very beautiful chair, I will be keeping this blog post stashed away so that I can show my 11-month-old baby girl where her gorgeous (and no doubt favourite) furniture came from in the years to come. Thank you Lara!

PS. I was about 6 months pregnant when I first laid eyes on this little chair at the Design:Made:Trade expo, and was so disappointed to hear it wasn't for sale. It was fate ;)
