And the agony of
defeat the seat. The perfect quote for the struggle between me and the chair back. It was the most frustrating project I have ever tackled. Murphy’s law was the theme of the night and anything that could have gone wrong, did. I bought customized foam for the back, but it was too big. I cut the fabric in the wrong order and didn’t have the right size by the time I got to the cording. The patterns weren’t lining up. The fabric would not lay flat on the curved foam. I pricked myself with the staples. Boo hoo.
It looks good, but there were imperfections that I could not work out and it annoys me. Annoys me so much that I don’t know if I have the energy to finish the second chair. The feeling of defeat for the second time makes me want to quit before I have even started. Enough of my pity party, here is the finished product.
The frame was not “polished” with paint for a few reasons. First, it was in really good shape and only needed to be rejuvenated by a little wood polish. Second, the wood colored frame and gray fabric are a hybrid between the two big pieces of furniture. The gray fabric matches the mirrored buffet and the wood tone mimics the pool table. You’ll see what I mean if I ever get around to taking pictures of the entire room. Or you can sift through old post.
