A New Look for the “Valentine’s Chair”

Do you remember when I posted about my Valentine’s gift…

…..when I was given the choice of a chair or jewelry?

And as you know, it was a no brainer for me….the chair please!!

I so loved the chair, but I knew when I bought it that I wanted a different fabric.

Yes, I know, a new chair and I recover it already!…


Here is the chair’s “new doo” !!

I purchased fabric from one of my favorite fabric stores and I got a fantastic deal on the fabric…

…..it was only a total of $33.00…yes, to cover the entire chair. It was under $7.00/yd on clearance.


This was the before…the fabric was an oatmeal colored striped fabric…

…..I wanted more pattern in the chair.


I was searching for a buffalo check pattern..but when I saw this fabric…

…..I knew it would be great in the room and I still got somewhat of a checked pattern.


I’ve never used this upholsterer before, and he did a great job.

He is the one who sells his pillows on Joss and Main in addition to his store front.


I paired it with a Pottery Barn pillow that I already had…it needs some trim to dress it up a bit.


The new fabric is happier and crisper…I am so glad that I had it recovered.

When I picked up the chair at the shop, I also picked up 2 pillows that were made for me.


I saw this Ikat fabric and the colors were perfect for the room….

…..I paired it with the Asian toile pillow that I bought from them a couple of weeks ago…

……….a sort of “yin and yang” of fabrics.


Here is my “Valentine’s Chair” sitting pretty in the room with it’s “new doo”.

Oh, and as I was leaving the shop with my chair and new pillows, I spotted a set of pillows on clearance…

…..that would go well in my media room…Therefore, that domino effect is happening…stay tuned!

So..what do you think??…Did I make the right decision in re-covering the chair??…I think so!!

Thank you for visiting and have a beautiful day!!
