Sleek Modern Chair is completed! Been working on other projects too, but finally finished the chair that I recently blogged about. Check out this chair....nice, clean, simple lines.
Here's a run-down of how I got to this point. The birch wood chair was originally finished with a light colored, blond finish. The original seat bottom was vinyl that had seen better days. I removed the vinyl covered seat bottom. I lightly hand-sanded the chair. Painted the chair with semi-gloss black paint.
Next, I worked on recovering the seat bottom. I kept the original seat bottom because it was still sound and in working order. I discarded all of the old batting and vinyl covering. I recovered the seat with 2" Nu-Foam and used a bold, graphic black and white outdoor canvas fabric to recover the seat cushion. I like to use outdoor canvas fabrics for indoor use. The canvas proves to be more durable, cleans better than other fabrics. Then, I rescrewed the chair bottom back onto the chair and I have given new life to an old chair.
