Sharing this vintage bentwood chair makeover as my first post for this year. Until few years ago, I had not heard about a "bentwood" furniture. Back home in India, these bentwood furniture are known as "cane furniture". For that matter, I didn't know what "chevron" design was. Always knew it as "zig-zag" pattern. "Ombre" was "fading design".
Early 2014, I found this vintage bentwood chair at a vintage store for $20. It was in good shape except the upholstery part. I have never upholstered a chair and I did not want to try it on this chair.
I spent less than $100 including the chair, fabric, stain and for the upholsterer. Mr. Tweaks said I would have found a chair at a store for less than what I spent. Maybe.
I have had this chair for more than a year now and I still love it. Despite having professional help for this project, I still consider this my favorite tweak.
Have a great rest of the week.
