do you remember this chair?
i bought it back in november of 2009, i think .. it is a vintage 60s era shaw walker with aluminum legs .. with the original fabric and the original metal tag label on the back .. rod and sherry took it to canton last month, but it didn't sell .. so they brought it back ..
then i saw an article in country living magazine where they took old sweaters and recovered things .. lampshades, bottles and the like ..
so ... this is what i did .. i recovered the chair in a grey sweater i picked up at a thrift store .. it wasn't until i was cutting off the excess that i noticed the original tag on the sweater ... also, i left the original tweed like fabric on the chair ..
then i was having such a good time with the sweaters .. and looking for things to recover ... i picked up this pink sweater and recovered a large drum shade .. i like the 'button-up' look ...
i left the old fabric on the shade .. lazy i guess .. but also i was afraid i would end up having to line the shade .. i wanted to avoid that ..
off to work some more .. footstool to upholster and slipcovers to make .. rod is painting today and sherry is working on signs .. and keeping us all organized ..
