My Chair Redo

Before we even got to Arizona, I was scrolling through the online marketplaces looking for stuff for the house. I found this chair and had daughter #2 pick it up for me. I had no idea how huge it was!

Mr. Wonderful calls it the Santa Claus chair. I refer to it as my throne. I loved it, but it wasn’t really comfortable . Also, as much as I loved the pattern, it clashed with everything.

The cushions were too big and too hard. So I decided to redo them. This is what it looks like without them. Cool, huh?

I picked up several yards of this upholstery fabric from a Good Will back home and brought it out here, not really knowing what I’d do with it.

Time to cut down these gigantic cushions!

An electric knife is just the ticket for that job.

My 301 powers through this like it was quilting cotton.

And ta daaaaa!

In person, the fabric looks more green than blue. Willy gave it his seal of approval. I don’t love this kind of sewing, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. It is much more comfortable now too.

Have a great day!
