A SWEET LITTLE CHAIR

The first 3 pictures are obviously the before shots.  This is the kind of chair that I am not crazy about slipcovering because there is no separate seat cushion.  That just means there there is no room for an kind of error.

Back view, with buttons.

This chair is going in a bathroom.  The fabric is a matelasse with a natural color linen welting and buttons.  This fabric just gets softer and softer the more it is washed.

What a superb job!

I'm a little embarrassed - I actually like the old upholstery! LOL

But - there is no question - it's far spiffier and more posh now!

I wish I could do upholstery so beautifully - I have a few chairs in storage that look like they were scavengered after the Dresden bombings.
