I’m a pretty lucky gal, to come from a family of talented crafters/DIYers/handy people-ers. As a kid, my mom used to sew all of my costumes, no matter what crazy thing I may have asked for. She has reupholstered chairs, sewn pillows, quilts, replaced chair covers, the lady has skills!
On a recent trip to a local consignment shop I saw a set of four mid-century chairs and knew I just had to have them. I begged my mom to reupholster a pair as my Christmas gift and I planned to refinish the other two to sell them. Unfortunately I didn’t buy them on the spot hoping to wait a week for the price to drop but by the time I decided not to risk it and went back, there were just two left so they will be mine! They’ll make for some pretty comfy seating in my craft room. In addition to updating the fabric they’ll also get a sanding for some fresh stain.
From having to pick fabric for curtains in each bedroom, the living room, kitchen, kitchen seats, etc., I think I’m suffering from fabric selection overload and I can’t pick a fabric for these chairs and that’s where you come in! I’d like your help in choosing 🙂
Here are some inspiration design seeds I had picked for my craft room palette
I’ve been honing in on pinks, which is not the norm for me, I usually hate pink but I’m having trouble finding pink fabrics that match. My goal is to modernize the chairs while also being reminiscent of the time period. With all that in mind, here are some mock chairs with fabrics I’ve been drawn to:
Please help me by voting for your pick in the comments*. I’m considering scrapping all the pink ones and finding a fabric I like regardless of the original color palettes-let me know if you think I should too!
