Channel Back Chair Before and After



Last month I conquered a channel back chair.  I will fully admit it was a bit of a challenge but that's what makes it fun right?



The chair was in pristine condition it just needed a little updating.  


I started with a gray linen for the front and then got a little stuck after that.  I bought a couple different fabrics for the back.  One that was crazy & colorful and the other a black, cream and gray damask.  You know how it is though, on the day I decided to finish the chair I wasn't feeling either one.  It was very rainy and cold outside and this wool hounds tooth from my stash just called out to me.  


It made for a very warm and cozy feel.  A sweater pillow tops it off. 









I fully intended to do a tutorial on how to reupholster a channel back chair but I got into it and kinda got sidetracked with doing it.  Here's just a peak for those who might be interested to know just what's going on inside one of these bad boys. 



It's really not that bad just a lot of steps, but well worth the effort.  I'm still really enjoying working on upholstered pieces and learning as I go.
