    I love it! You have me daydreaming about a chair similar to this in my garden corner refinished in outdoor fabric with a bright print Vera Bradley like. Very nice ladies I love it! You have inspired1

    This is one of the most striking upholstery makeovers I’ve seen — I think that the style of the chair, the fabric and the white paint really come together in a special way. I LOVE IT!!! I really don’t know how you did that beautiful tufting in those deep pocket, but it’s marvelous. Thank you for bringing such a great bragable to the Boardwalk Bragfest! Boy that white paint really brings out the beautiful carvings in the wood, doesn’t it?

    New friend from HOH! Love the new chair. It would be wonderful if you could do a tutorial one day! I have a chair that I bought and I am a little nervous to tackle it.

    Holy cow, girl that looks dang awesome!!! Great job!! I have done easy upholstery stuff (like the seat to a chair that is one piece of fabric) but I would be terrified to tackle your chair! How did you do all the tuffets where you back goes? Is Tuffet even a word?

    Thanks for Hookin’ Up with me at my party!

    That’s amazing! The fabric is fabulous and I’m so impressed by all the button work you did on the chair back!
