Velvety Goodness

You may remember that I scooped up these beautiful vintage club chairs back in January. Back then they were a little stinky, green, faded, snagged and needing a little a lot of TLC.

Since it was a bit of an investment, I took my time picking a fabric, which was hard because I tend to be a wee bit impulsive when it comes to decisions like these. I even ordered multiple fabric swatches before ordering the proper amount — go me! I think it paid off too. I might have chosen a different color based off the internet’s representation of colors. I landed on the shadow grey performance velvet from West Elm. It’s super soft and feels very sturdy and durable. A few days after the fabric arrived, my sweet little chairs were picked up and delivered to Covers Unlimited for their big makeover (thanks Jess for the suggestion!).

I have to give a a big ole thank you to Cary at Covers Unlimited, they were amazing to work with and dealt with my indecisions on whether we should leave the back cushions attached or unattached and what type of legs to put on them. Eventually I was able to decide and then they were done in just a few weeks!

Imagine how thrilled I was to open my inbox on Monday to find an email from Cary telling me my chairs were finished! They were delivered the next day and are now sitting happily in my front room. I’m currently testing the pink ikat pillows from my bed on there now. What do you think?

There was a little bit of fabric leftover, so I think I’ll sew myself some pillows to put on the couches to tie the whole room together. As for now? I’m going to go catch up on my favorite reads over a cup of coffee while sitting in these beauties!

I do feel like I should apologize for acting like a proud mama to a pair of club chairs. Can you believe this is only a few of the 68 pictures I took? #embarrassing
