Apartment Therapy DC reader Laura, who so graciously opened her home for a House Tour back in December, has a question about refinishing her latest sidewalk find: Hi AT! I picked up this chair for free on the sidewalk with grand plans to make it over. I want to refinish it in white lacquer, and add an upholstered back, but I'm stumped as to what type of fabric I should do use to recover it. It will be going in my bathroom/dressing room (pictured below), which is quite girly, due to the pink tile, but I would like to avoid making it too traditional or cutesy. I also don't know how wild it should be, as the curtain fabric is pretty loud already. Any suggestions? Thanks, Laura
Laura, Given our track record on reupholstering chairs, we think it best to open this question to our readers for constructive advice. Readers- what should Laura do with the fabulous chair she found in the street?
