Ginny's Chairs

These chairs were upholstered with hot pink velvet in 1969 by my mother and I had them in my attic for years. A few weeks ago I threw some fabric over them. When I saw them without the PINK, I realized they were pretty cute and decided to upholster them!

I pulled off the trim and found a million tiny tacks and cracked damaged wood underneath.

Very cool old fabric (maybe the original) on the bottom but it's way to rotten for me to leave on.

the new fabric.
Its shiny and the photo doesn't show it off.
the paisley is for the bottom.
