I've had the most beautiful Aesthetic style slipper chair in my bedroom for a couple of years now. I absolutely love the carvings, the wood, etc. I also loved the color of the fabric (green) that almost perfectly matched the bedroom walls. What I didn't love was the design and peachy accents in the fabric. The colonial/Victorian/whatever look just didn't do justice to the carvings and style of the chair. So, I waited patiently (!?!) for the perfect fabric to go on sale at Hancocks at the same time that I had some extra pocket change and was making a trip to Victoria. It finally happened when I was at the quilt show I mentioned before.
Last night I finally recovered the chair and it looks perfect. The new fabric has more of an Aesthetic or William Morris look to me. I did forget to buy trim, though. Hopefully I can take care of that this weekend.
What do you think of my new masterpiece? And I know it's incredibly dusty, but it's not from my housekeeping. It's from the old batting and the fabric I took off.
