Here is the chair I was telling you about:

 


It just needs a little love. I feel like it's screaming, "I'm still a great chair!" at me. 
It is.

The chair is great, but I'm dying over your built-in shelving! Are you kidding me?!? And is that a fireplace peeking in?

The shelving was a major, major draw for us. I love it, all of us (me + Tyler + Cash) feel much happier here than at the old place. :) It's a gas fireplace, and it works but our TV is currently in front of it. I know it sounds lame but it's the way it has worked out thus far... I don't mind it so much since we've only lived here for the summer.

So now tell me your thoughts on the fabrics.. :)

I love the fabric, the colors are so great and the pattern is interesting. I've seen this fabric in person and it's gorgeous. Would you paint the wood?r I also think mixing fabrics is the way to go here, I love the chevron with the dark piping the most, I think. So excited to see the end result, especially if you do a bit of a how-to. I have an awesome chair that I want to reupholster, but I'm too chicken to try it on my own!

I suppose in my mind, leaving the wood isn't really an option. At this point in time, I'll say I think it has to be painted.

Fun project! I love the Chiang Mai paired with a graphic chevron print. In my opinion, I think the Greek key is a little too busy on the same furniture piece, but it may work as a rug. I love the simplicity of the chevron. Kudos for tackling an upholstery project!!

P.s. I think you should lacquer the wood navy blue :)

Navy blue? You're brilliant. I love that. Actually I think you just helped me more than you know. I tend to forget that Navy, Plum, and some Green shades also act as neutrals. My mom is coming out in October, I think it might be a good project to do while she's here to help. You know that she can configure fabric into anything!
