This chair had fine elements. The loose back pillow was feather down. Other than the tired looking fabric, it was in good condition.
I had an elderly neighbor down the street upholster the chair in pink pillow ticking. I loved the quirky look.
Once we moved to Huntsville, I found an amazing slip cover lady. I called her and told her that I had some unusual fabric to cover this chair. When she came to pick up the chair, she suggested that I put an unusual skirt on the piece.
Here is what she came up with. Notice the front skirt.
The skirt had pronounced ruffles on the outer corners on the front.
I realize most husbands would cringe at a pink chair in the bedroom, but Mr. Thrifty lets me give some of my thrift finds a really whimsical feel.
I love this chair. Just knowing that new life was breathed into it makes me so happy.
