This chair just screams personality to me and I could instantly see it's potential. Heck, for $30 it will be a great reupholstering project. So I went to my local fabric store for some sort of inspiration as far as fabric but of course no luck! (Living in NYC with all the great fabric selections has really put a damper on trying to find anything here in New Orleans!)
Then I came across a post on one of my favorite blogs, Elements of Style and got some great ideas! I might reupholster the chair with some hand painted fabric! I stenciled our bedroom drapes (read post HERE) and it was so easy and cheap. I think I'll give it a whirl!

This inspiration photo got me thinking I should paint some fabric. I want to do some sort of stripe to add even more drama and height to the already high back chair. Now the question is... something silky? or a cotton to paint on? I want it to have a watercolor washed look and I think a silk would do it better than cotton....
