#200...new life for louis

before
My client Erin had this Louis style armchair pushed against a wall in her living room. In rearranging furniture in the room, this chair got a more prominent spot in front of a large window, and Erin wanted to give the chair more color and more of a solid presence in her room. We got a yard of this fabric from Calico Corners and I went to work recovering the seat and building a solid back for the top portion of the chair. I simply used cardboard, batting, welting cord and hot glue to craft the chair's now solid backing, so Erin can remove the faux back down the road if she desires.

Great idea putting a back on the chair - it looks so good.
