Before & After: A French Slipper Chair Gets a Little Ooh La La

Maria in Argentina tells us that she recently started restoring furniture, but based on her skills with this slipper chair, we're wondering if there's a bit of a language barrier. Did you mean, "I'm a reupholstery genius," Maria?

That's one sexy slipper! We love the neutral yet textured fabric Maria chose.

From Maria:

It's exciting to undress and dress furniture. I like reaching the bones, the roots of a piece. This French Slipper Chair was very old and ugly — its padding was made of straw. I decided to accentuate its curves with cording along the edges and I replaced the ruffles with four simple folds.

Thank you Maria!
