Not too long after we moved into our house last fall, I went on the hunt for a pretty armchair and thought I scored a bargain with this find at $40 from Craigslist. Then I saw it in person and wasn't so sure. The finish is blotchy and the arms are at an improper height. But still, it has that pretty cane back, so at that price, for an occasional chair, I decided I could live with the imperfections.
It had been my intent to make a cushion cover for the chair and after all these months, I set about that task his past weekend with an inexpensive oatmeal colored woven cotton fabric from Jo Ann's.
I'm pleased with the outcome and will no doubt tackle another occasional armchair in the not too distant future to cover the grossly outdated green velvet cushion.
