FRENCH CHAIR upholstered in blue ticking

I had some navy striped ticking fabric for a while and every time I looked at it 
I preferred the reverse size.

It had a great vintage look and when I was ready to upholster
this chair I jumped in with both feet and went with the under 
side showing. When upholstering with a striped fabric you
must be a little more cautious and aware of where the pattern
is laying. Be sure to center the top and bottom, and try to
match up the lines on the seat with  the back. You have to
 keep your fabric taught but not distort the stripes. It's not
hard, you just have to keep double checking where things are. 

The frame was a dark mahogany color before I spray painted
 it in a creamy white mix of ASCP Old white & Pure 
white. The distressing was done with 220 sand paper and 
finished off with AS clear wax applied with a brush. The off 
white gimp trim has been hot glued into place over the fabric 
edge and hides the staples.
