Your new find is a treasure indeed. I love the deep pleated lines in the back ~ hope you keep that in the beautiful new upholstery.
Thank you - always nice getting comments. I absolutely will keep the deep pleats...I think that's what I love most about this chair.
Up there with my all-time favourite things to do - trawling junk shops and ebay for sad chairs to re-upholster! This will look amazing and love your fabric choices! Will you paint the frame? So glad to aquaint myself with your blog, I'm adding you to my blog list right now!!
