Default re-covered chair

Unfortunately I don't have a before photo as I was helping my friend with this project and she had the painting started before I got the camera organized. Basically it was dark brown wood with a mushroom colour fabric on the seat.
We gave it three coats of undercoat and finished off with white satinwood paint. The fabric was a piece chosen as it was large enough to get the pattern right in the centre.
We are delighted with the result. It looks very classy now. It looks like the sort of chair you would see in the window display of an expensive boutique with a dress draped across it!! Amazing what a bit of paint and new fabric can do.
