The Chair - Update

I finally found some fabric I love and resumed work on the chair.

Covered pad and bottom w/ batting:

Then nailed fabric on.

Next steps -- nail head trim and MAYBE cover the sides?

What do you think? Cover sides or keep caning?

Cool fact:

Went by an estate sale this morning and saw an antique chair pretty similar listed for $185! Not bad for $14.99 for chair and $20 for fabric, huh?

It was wonderful to meet you in person, so fun to have a new bloggy crafty friend. I can't get over how crazy that is - what are the odds?
Your daughter is a doll. I will keep in touch if I see any steals on CL, or local sales or anything amazing. Can't wait to see what you do with the chairs!
Take care - Alyshia
