The Comfy Chair

I am finally finished with the cover for the Comfy Chair! This was one of those projects that are easy, but extremely time-consuming; however, I am definitely pleased with the results.

The Comfy Chair is a piece of furniture that was given to us by Mini’s sister when she didn’t have room for it any more. It is, indeed, extremely comfortable, and everyone likes to sit there. Over the years, it became worn and dingy, and it was not only comfy, but downright ugly.

A couple of months ago, my mom gave me a white canvas chair cover that didn’t fit any of her chairs. It did work on the Comfy Chair, but there was no way white was going to survive in my house. I decided to dye it brown.

Whit is a no no at my house.

I used Dylon Woodland Brown fabric dye, and I put the chair cover in my big dye pot. After rinsing and drying, I took the chair cover to the studio.

It 's great to have a really big dye pot!

I began stamping leaf designs on it using DecoArt SoSoft fabric paints. It was easy and fun, but it’s a big chair cover and these are small leaf stamps, plus you have to let the paint dry before you can safely move the piece without smudging it. It took two months to finish.

Ready to go.

Stamping, stamping, stamping.

Stamping, stamping, stamping.

It took about two months to complete.

But it is all done now! Just in time for the Comfy Chair to be taken out of the living room to make room for the Christmas tree.

It's done!

It’s done!

And the cats still love it.
