Ugly Orange Chair Sneak Peak

Wanna see what I've been working on this week?  
Introducing, The UGLY ORANGE CHAIR.  Original name huh!
This chair was given to us a few years ago and I love it.  By that, I mean I love its potential.  I think its circa 1950s and has beautiful lines.  But,  the upholstery is not so beautiful.  I like the color orange a lot, but worn out orange velvet doesn't really speak to me.  And, the wood looks a little worn.  It is scratched and chipped.  Really, it has needed a facelift. 
 I've known this forever.  But, I've never before tackled such a big upholstery project, and I love this chair so much that I have been afraid that by trying, I would accidentally ruin it.   I have finally bolstered my courage and begun!

  Here is just a sneak peak at part of what I've done so far.... Stay tuned to see more of the Ugly Orange Chair over the next few days!
