I bought this chair a couple of weeks ago at Goodwill for $3. But, when I stripped it down I found $1.40 in the cushions, along with two ink pens, a pencil and several pieces of children's toys. So I would say I'm even. Okay, maybe I'm more than even...
I covered this chair in Alexander Henry Home's Black Veronique, which I liked on the bolt, but I LOVE on this chair. This chair was very different than the Blue Leaflet chair I did- much less sewing, much more stapling and using special upholstery supplies. I also didn't attempt to match anything on this chair, because I just couldn't figure out the repeat. But, I don't think it matters. I did match the covered buttons I put on the back, but you wouldn't know that because they blend in so well, you can't see them! And I made a couple of boo boos on this chair, but a little Fray Check prevented further disaster.
I'll write up a pictorial essay this afternoon or evening. I'll even point out my boo boos.
(Update 3/13/2008: My write-up is done.)
