French chairs get a make over

 Before: This silk damask was on the chairs for about 25 years!

I started refreshing the living room in January--some new pillows and draperies, a new French chair covered in pink suede and now the final project is completed as well.A recover of the chairs by the fireplace.
I have a wonderful upholstery shop nearby and they always finish on time and are priced well. They have done many things for me. This job was a bit tricky since I bought only 3 meters of the Carolyn Quartermaine fabric from her. She is in the UK. 
I had admired her script fabric for over 15 years and finally bought it for this project. It is light and pretty looking and since it is not sold in USA shops or at the design mart you do not see it everywhere. 
I am happy with the way the living room looks now and  am quite pleased with the fabric.  Joining in on Show and Tell Friday
and Pink Saturday
Have a Pink day!
