Before & after: upholstered slipper chairs

This is my first upholstery project, and I think I bit off more than I could chew.  Thanks to Lynne at L + J Furniture, I was able to completely turn these slipper chairs around in two days.  After stripping the first chair off, we measured the fabric and realized that there wouldn’t me enough to cover both chairs.  Since this fabric was ordered online by my friend who owns these chairs, I couldn’t reorder in time got completion.  I rushed off to High Fashion Home and chose a complementary fabric, which turned out better than I had anticipated.    The chairs are much more interesting than if we had covered them all in the citrine geometric pattern.

You can see how we were able to have the birds face each other, a detail I really love.
