Imagine the stories it could tell. Probably best that it can't! But thinking where a vintage piece has been is what brings richness to the item. I love old stuff. And speaking of old...check out the next photo.......
Now this is old! This is the original vintage fabric that covered my little chair. Oh how I wish I could replicate it. But since that wasn't possible, I chose ........
.......this golden fabric. Yellows and golds match nearly every room in the house. So I will be able to enjoy it in any room I choose.
With the upholstering part completed, there's nothing left to do but clean up the wood a bit...AND....
