paper & linen

two projects semi-completed.

reupholstery of a red velvet flea market chair in plain nubby linen. new tacks to replace the old bent ones. fluffier stuffing. my plan has always been to recover the back too, but while pulling out the old batting, i uncovered this beautiful wooden detail that looks like a butterfly. for now i will leave it.

paper collage from old farm ledger. [torn paper & mod-podge on canvas.]

I like the butterfly-back on the chair, too! The paper collage is amazing.

the chair looks great. i've always wanted to redo a chair, but i haven't actually had one that would work.
