From drab to Fab!

One of my favorite hobbies is scouring flea markets and antique stores. There are some hits and many misses, but I really lucked out when I found this lovely pair of Louis XV chairs. They weren’t in horrible shape (minus the totally drab fabric), but I decided to give them a facelift. I found this modern, black and white fabric and got to upholstering. It was my first go at DIY upholstery, so I purchased a step-by-step book by Spruce, which was a tremendous help. Makeover complete!
