Vintage Chair Makeover

I finally did it! I took this pair of chairs in to be re-upholstered.

Here is the before:

And here's the after:

I picke out a aqua/gray crushed velvet fabric from JoAnn's.

I decided to keep the caning and the upholsterer cleaned up the wood a little and restained it rich brown color.

And here they sit in my new house! We just moved in this weekend so stay tuned for future projects and a look at each room.


  1. PERFECT! You did a great job. I have one similar but more squarish that I need to do. Someday soon I hope.

  2. Your chairs are gorgeous. I think it is so much better to have vintage redone than to buy new. All of the upholstered pieces in my house have been just that. Great color choices too!
