Leslie loves to reupholster furniture and found this little chair at an estate sale for ten bucks. Although it had a great shape, it was in a sorry state, with stains on the old fabric. After Leslie stripped it down and rebuilt the springs and padding, it sat in her garage until the right fabric came along.

Inspired by the color combination of lavender and citron, Leslie decided a Manuel Canovas toile was the perfect fabric to give the chair new life. She also switched it up a bit, by removing the skirt pleats, to make it more streamlined and current. 

You can see more of the finished product, and the rest of Leslie's work, over at Lekalia Interiors.

Bravo Leslie! Really lovely transformation.
