Three of our editors give their old chairs an overhaul -- and learn a few valuable lessons along the way.
After many years and many empty promises, my chair was finally finished. The fabric feels great and really transforms this piece. And because I opted for a slipcover, there still is no real commitment. If I change my mind at some point, I can take off the slipcover and do something different. But I can’t imagine wanting to do that any time soon.
One thing I did learn is that with any piece covered in dark fabric, you have to be sure to have something there to break up the color block. Either a throw or a pillow will do the trick. I found this pillow and fell in love with its pattern. It adds life to the chair, and the butterflies are much more scientific in appearance than girlie or sweet.
