These wingback chairs were one of my favorite projects to slipcover from the past few months. The curvy lines and just the difference that a solid neutral fabric made in their appearance was so much fun for me to see!
Liz (of LizMarieBlog) brought me these beauties to work on. They're for her new farmhouse and I'm excited to see the ways that she styles them. She is super sweet and talented, so please check out her website. I am in awe of all the projects she accomplishes in such a short amount of time.
As you can see from above, the chairs have a lovely, retro floral print upholstery. It's worn out on the arms and seat but they still sit well and have may more years of use ahead of them!
The fabric I used for slipcovering these is from painters drop cloth. It's a great way to get a lot of fabric for a good price. I washed all the dropcloths before sewing with liquid fabric softener to soften them up. It works great and gives these chairs a casual, relaxed look.
I'm on the hunt for a pair of wingbacks now. I have an idea of where I can use them in my home and since I love how these turned out, I want a pair too!
Here's a more detailed shot of the pleating on the arm and the box pleated skirt.
