Here's what I made with my two ladder back chairs and curtains.
I guess you could call it a make-do settee.
I've made a number of make-do chairs and have been wanting to try a settee.
I did cut the fabric a little to
short on the seat cushion and I didn't have another curtain to cut up,
so I'll just have to live with my mistake.
I filled the cushion with down for an early look.
I know the fabric looks black and white,
but, it's black and dark cream.
I'm sorry to say that I got so engrossed in the project it's self I didn't take time to take
photos of my work in progress.
Now don't fret!
My dear sweet blogging buddy Lisa of Primitives From Above did a tutorial recently
explaining how she made her make-do chair and she was kind enough to let me add
a link to her tutorial.
My settee was made using the same basic process Lisa used.
For the settee two chairs are placed side by side and held together by placing
one piece of plywood across the back and front, just like Lisa did with her chair.
Make sure the chairs seat form a straight line in front.
The front legs will be together, but there will be a gap between the back legs.
In the past I tacked the fabric on the chair.
This time I measured and sewed
the fabric, almost like making slip covers.
it was fun reading your comments,
and a special thanks to Lisa for sharing!
