I mentioned the other day that I had some leftover fabric from my sofa makeover. At the last minute, I decided to give this chair a makeover. The upholsterer gave me a great deal on the labor cost, so I took my chair in to be reupholstered.
The chair has changed a lot over the years. I inherited it from my mom. It's been in my possession for over 16 years.
Of course it didn't look that terrible when I received it! Long story short, my old cat used it as her scratching post. After that it accumulated some mold and mildew after being stored in the garage.

Then I recovered it using some inexpensive fabric that I didn't love.
It was my first time and I did a horrible job, but I'm glad I tried!

The second time around I was so frustrated I almost gave up. What a job! The backrest and the arms were so complicated. I've come to realize how much I dislike reupholstering.
But since then I outgrew the fabric and wanted a change...
As often as I like to redecorate, a neutral fabric was the way to go.
I'm very happy with my new chair!
They did an awesome job!
Lately I've been decorating with neutrals and adding in texture and a hint of color.
With the changes my house feels lighter and airier.
My style has evolved over the years and I finally found my groove.
