Now that we are doing my daughter’s big girl room (reveal soon!), I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the little chair we are going to be putting in her little “reading nook.” I love this striped Cabbages and Roses fabric. The next time we go visit my hubby’s relative’s I would love to go into the actual Cabbages & Rose’s store. It’s so beautiful and serene looking on-line. The pattern is called Bunty Stripe. It’s a beautiful variegated navy blue stripe on grey linen. *sigh* I love linen. It’s perfect for a reupholstered striped chair before and after.
Remember the before pic? It was a cute, little chair, it just didn’t go with anything in my house, least of all the idea I have brewing for my daughter’s room. I painted the wood white. I wasn’t sure if I was going to at first, but then I knew that it would make the pattern pop. I think it turned out so cute!
Whether to line up the stripes or not was my big dilemma… I decided that since I wasn’t exactly an expert upholsterer; that I wouldn’t worry about trying to make them match exactly. It looks so pretty it doesn’t matter any way.
I edged it in a lightly frayed grey woven trim. I think it looks a bit less formal than regular trim, and am so happy with how it turned out! I can’t wait to finish the rest of the room to show you how the chair looks in it!
I’m really excited to put this in the kids rooms and have spot for them to read books. You can see the final room reveal here.
