Velvet Wing Back Armchair

I love making my patchwork upholstery chairs, but its time to move onto something different so I wanted to reupholster an old wing-back chair. We get them in at Shabitat fairly often. As all materials I use are reclaimed or end of roll, I never get big enough pieces to cover one large item. But instead of the patchwork approach I wanted to use a different colour for each panel of the chair.  Velvet curtains were my answer. Soft, mat and durable.

I have lost count on how many hours it took to finish but I’m quite pleased with the outcome!

UPDATE!

Here it is in its new home. That only took 2 days!
