new life...

I love to find old chairs that are in need of a make-over,
It's a passion of mine.
(I like to think that I'm giving them a second chance in life ;)
I have already quite many chairs and I have completed
redecorating some of them, while others
are waiting for the right moment to
get their new look!

this time I began making the textile
(for me that's the fun part ;)

I painted the chair with ( just) one layer
of white primer and then I sanded
it down again to give it a used look,
to get the patina I used two colors
of wax.

I't needed a new cover badly,
first It got some white linen,
which I stabled on, and then
I made some loose cover over
the linen so it will be easy
to use and wash !

a new life !!!

the chair before...

I'm already looking forward for the next chair make-over!!
