French Wingback Chair

I had planned on waiting till this project is finished to even mention it, but I just can't contain myself. I am SO excited about my wingback chair revival in process that I need to just show a few pics so that maybe you can see my vision and get excited too (unless you are normal and don't stay awake at night thinking about how you can try to turn every ugly thing you can imagine into something gorgeous to go into your house... for cheap).

I bought this bad boy at a Consignment store in Dixie, UT on a girls trip with my sisters this summer and have been pondering over what to do with her since then. I also had to save up for the fabric that I really wanted and I'm so glad I waited. We all fell in love with the charm in the details on this chair and ottoman. I hadn't ever really upholstered anything when I bought it, so it was very brave of me but so far so good!

More pics coming soon....


  1. Jen, if you are at all interested in selling this when you're finished, please let me know. I would be very intereted!

  2. I love the fabric! I can't wait to see it!

  3. Miss you are sweet. I am putting this one in my bedroom, but if you want something similar, I would be happy to reupholster one for you. Let me know! Thanks Als, I LOVE the fabric also but had to wait till I had earned enough teaching money to splurge on this one :)

  4. Oh that fabric is gorgeous! I think I've seen the pattern in mink, it looks so soft!


I can't wait to hear from you! If you have any detailed questions, please feel free to email me- Thanks!
