Funky Victorian

One of the "delights" of living on rented accommodation is that one has to put up with furniture that does not quite fit, or is not of your taste. We have a Victorian nursing chair that is very comfortable, but the fabric is dull and is (surprise, surprise!) a little bit worn out. So I decided to make it more to our taste and have been doing a little bit of upholstery. I guess it is not proper upholstery, but it does the trick for me! I didn't take a picture of how the chair looked before because it was something that I started as an experiment that turned out to come out well. Ye-hey!

This is the original fabric, used in all of the chair.

Much nicer now! This is fabric from yesterday's trip to Ikea

The lovely blue fabric adds some colour to the room, which is always a good thing

I quite like the idea that the cushion is reversible
I will now enjoy sitting on this chair!

Hi Concha! I got the blue fabric in Ikea around a month ago. I love it too! Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment.
