At least that's what I'm telling myself! Remember this post here with a sneak peak to my look-alike Lorraine chair from Restoration Hardware? Did you see the date on that post? July 10th! I'm still working on it!
Some projects just take longer! We've had a vacation, a business trip, a funeral, and just life happen since then. I don't consider any of those set backs...those are just life, right?
So, today, I'm posting the almost finished chair with these words of caution:
When you plan to use drop cloth for a chair, make sure you either buy two...or don't use it for three other projects before you start the one you wanted the cloth for!
Granted, I really like how the other three projects turned out, but, you know, I didn't end up having enough for the cushion cover. I also couldn't remember where I bought the drop cloth. I thought I'd save time by staying close to home and purchasing a new drop cloth from our local lumber/home store, Porter's. Sadly, when I got home, I found that it didn't match the chair. So, I drove the 20 minutes to Lowe's, where I hopefully bought the first one. Did you know that drop cloths come in different grades? I ended up buying the medium grade only to find out that I had previously bought heavy grade. So, I'm off to Lowe's again to exchange them. But here's a sneak peak of how it's looking so far:
On a positive note, the delays did help me to rethink some things about how I was putting the piece back together. I ended up adding double cording AND vintage upholstery studs. I was only going to put the cording on, but since I initially ran out of fabric, I started adding the stud and I love the dimension and contrasting color it brings to the piece!
