flamingo shabby chic chair

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

This old antique chair was my friend’s nans. I stripped it down to natural wood using paint stripper.  I then painted it with Rustoleum Lilac Wine chalk paint.  Waxed it with clear furniture wax and sanded it to give it the shabby chic look.  

The flamingo seat pad had been reupholstered three times with the original horse hair still in use. I stripped it down to the frame and traditionally upholstered the seat pad as it should be.  

This was a commission job, transform the ottoman into a fresh new ottoman. I’ve used Laura Ashley fabric help with a schedule 3 interliner to ensure it complies to fire regulations.
