I don't remember where or when I got this cute little chair. It had a broken out cane seat, I'm not a huge fan of caning and I certainly don't know how to do it so I just tore what was left off.
Saw this idea on Pinterest
via Pinterest - upholstery webbing
and thought I'd give it a try.
Not quite the before picture.
Tacked the back first and cut strips to fit.
Next the front.
One side and then the other.
Also, I wanted to show you the sweet apron I got from
Remember she won my 2 Year Blogiversary Giveaway. Well it turns out she lives very close by, so we agreed to meet up. She gifted me one of her handmade vintage sheet aprons, so cute!
Funny story about my first 'on purpose' blog meet up - when I told the little girl I met with someone from blogland she scolded me, "What?! You don't know who they might be!" Come to find out later, Cassandra kept the information from her mother as well, for the very same reason. Too funny!
Be sure to visit Cassandra's etsy shop and blog
Oh Susanne you've done a BRILLIANT job with this webbing....It looks like a professional Upholsterer did it....!!!!!ReplyDelete
So sorry I missed I your Anniversary & Giveaway....CONGRATULATIONS.....Here's to the next two....!!!!!
Have a WONDERFUL week....!!
Great job Susanne, love it! I just found a huge roll of jute webbing at an estate sale, now I need to find a chair.ReplyDelete
Isn't it fun meeting up with blog friends?
Great job on that chair. I just bought a chair that needs a make-over. For a second I thought it was the same style chair aside from the seat, but nope...they could be cousins. Check out my post from today for the chair comparison. http://sleepingorsewing.blogspot.com/2012/05/thrift-share-monday-may-7.htmlReplyDelete
