I love a good "Before and After" post and when my mom decided it was time to do something about her (comfortable but dated) wing-back chairs, I rushed over to snap a photo.
It was nice, but a little bland and I hoped she'd choose something contemporary like a modern floral pattern to punch it up! I always love seeing large, bright floral prints in magazines.
I'd been eyeing this upholstery pattern on fabric.com for a long time. I had hoped to use it to cover a chair but I never found the right chair. I got really excited when my mother emailed me a link to the exact pattern I liked.
It's rare that we agree on this sort of thing and it sort of felt like kismet.
Now her modern looking chairs are lovely seats for people (or cats) in her sun room.
It really makes me want to find a bright fabric for the bland (but comfy) couch in the family room.
