French Chair Makeover

I bought this chair at auction almost 7 years ago, and finally finished it this summer.  Sadly, because it was such a long time ago, I threw away some of the original pictures.  The chair was gold leafed, and had a satin red fabric.  It sat in two rentals before it came to our current home.

This last summer I stripped the finish off with stripper, and sanded it down to it’s original wood, and left it bare.  I picked out a heavy green linen fabric on ebay, and dressed it up with cording around the edges.

Close up details of the chair.  Some of the paint still remains on the wood, giving it a really rustic effect.  The lighter color wood really softens up the room, while the green gives the room that punch of color it needs.
