I have been wanting to reupholster a chair in this European Wool Army Blanket for at least six months. I love the stripe and it's just so cozy. Finally when I had sorta forgotten all about it, I found the perfect chair.
It has very simple lines with the most fabulous chunky legs.
I have also always wanted to do a deconstructed chair. Once I stripped the old fabric off I knew this chair would be perfect for that as well. It's very well built and very heavy. The thick hardwood frame is pretty, if you are into that sort of thing.
I used tons of old school tacks that are exposed to add to the deconstructed look. I had to be very careful with my cuts around the frame because what is usually hidden is now out there for all to see.
